AN abandoned former hotel in the middle of Kilcock is to be put back on the register of derelict sites.

The former Corscadden’s Hotel, which lies near the centre of the town, has been the subject of complaints in recent times.

Cllr. Brendan Weld told a recent Kildare County Council meeting that there was a lot of anti-social activity in the area and he had received complaints.

The Leader understands that the hotel has been the subject of a family disagreement and as a result there has been little or no progress in putting it into either private or social use.

At one point it was placed on the derelict site register by Kildare County Council.

Work was done to secure it and it was subsequently removed from the register

But following recent complaints, Cllr. Weld said he understood it would be put back on the register again.

On 25 July, the Council told the Leader that the premises is currently being examined to determine its status.

It is not in the derelict sites register at the moment, said spokesperson, Mary Dalton.

Legislation allows for levies or charges to be sought from the owners of derelict sites but owners cannot be charged unless the building is entered into the register.

Cllr. Weld said on 31 July, that he understood the former Corscadden’s Hotel building would be soon back on the register.
