Anger over caravans in Naas

THE presence of temporary dwellings and “illegal halting sites” in Naas has been attacked.

THE presence of temporary dwellings and “illegal halting sites” in Naas has been attacked.

“If it was me who parked around the town where I’m not supposed to be I would be moved on and it would certainly not be allowed on the Curragh plains. So why does the local authority permit temporary dwellings on sites around the Naas that come within the responsibility and management of the council ?” Cllr.Seamie Moore asked at a county council area meeting.

KCC official Mark McLoughlin said that if the land is in the public domain, notice is served under one of three pieces of legislation.

He said the council must first decide which piece of legislation to proceed under with a view to taking legal action.

Cllr. Fintan Brett complained that caravans parked close to a roundabout in Kill were moved - but just 300 yards away creating a similar hazard at the new location.
