It is proposed to take the following estates in charge within the coming five months — Racecourse Gate, Naas; The Maudlings, Naas; Landen Park, Naas and Straffan Way, Sallins.
By the end of the year it is proposed to have the following taken in charge — Osberstown Court, Park and Drive, Sallins; Sallins Wharf and Pier; Aldergrove, Naas and Killashee View, Naas.
