I continue to raise the issue of derelict properties on Connaught street, e.g. house numbers 7, 19, 21 and 83, with Dublin City Council. As a result of my representations over the past couple of years DCC Derelict Buildings, Dangerous Buildings, Legal department and the local area office are all engaged in trying to address the issue. A number of the properties have been entered onto the Derelict sites list and DCC is also pursuing negligent owners through the courts. The Dangerous Buildings section undertook some work to secure some properties and I have requested they undertake additional action to address the further dilapidation on some properties. Mary.
