CALL FOR BUILDERS BOND TO BE REVOKED OVER DUN EALA EPISODE
Cllr Frank O’Flynn of Fianna Fail is calling on Cork County Council to revoke the builder’s bond that is in place for Dun Eala in Fermoy to pay for the maintenance of the estate.
Following the resignation of all the members and the disbanding of the Dun Eala Resident’s Association last week when they received solicitor letters from the builder threatening legal action if they continued to highlight the problems with their estate, Cllr O’Flynn said that he could not understand why the council would not revoke the bond immediately.
“The residents have been very badly treated and it is now well within the rights of Cork County Council to revoke the bond and use this to pay for the maintenance of the estate. The residents have worked long and hard to make their estate a place that they can be proud of and it is shocking how the builder/developer has walked away from his responsibilities,” Cllr O’Flynn said.
Cllr O’Flynn also confirmed that he would be putting a motion before the next meeting of Cork County Council calling for the bond to be revoked.
“I think the builders and developers have gotten away with too much, not only in Fermoy, but in other areas of the county as well. I would also call on the Minister for Housing, Willie Penrose TD to investigate these issues and to ensure that builders and developers are held accountable for their actions,” Cllr O’Flynn concluded.
