DÚN LAOGHAIRE-Rathdown County Council to add unfinished building to derelict sites reigster...
Following an inspection that revealed serious safety concerns, the County Council has decided to act.
The 13-storey Sentinel apartment block was abandoned after the property crash. The debts associated with it ended up in Nama,which recently sold the site to a foreign buyer.
Fine Gael councillor Barry Saul said the Sentinel had been left unfinished for a number of years and he was happy that council officials had agreed to write to the new owners and request a copy of a recent structural report on the safety of the tower.
"Given the recent tragedy where a young boy lost his life in Co Westmeath on an unfinished site, it is vital that the council investigate the safety of this site and to make sure the owners are carrying out their legal responsibilities with regard to its safety," Mr Saul said.
Further inspections of the skeletal Sentinel building are to be carried out by the council after its dangerous buildings inspector confirmed the site had been secured.
