Tipperary County Council has been urged by Cllr Seamus Morris to look into a number of environment issues throughout Nenagh Municipal District Council area.

Among the issues are derelict buildings, illegal dumping and playground maintenance.

The Sinn Fein councillor has asked the council to contact the agents for Stereame Business Park to have them clean up the derelict building at the entrance to the park.

“The windows have been smashed and glass left lying around the place,” he said.

Cllr Morris pointed out that a number of the council’s ratepayers were trying to do business in the park.

“It is not fair to them or their customers to see the total disrespect shown to them by the agents for Stereame Business Park,” he said.

Cllr Morris also asked the council to investigate four incidents of illegal dumping at Grange / Rathnaleen near the ABP meant plant.

“The road has become a flytipping paradise for drive by flytipping because of its proximity to Nenagh,” said Cllr Morris.

He urged the environment section of Tipperary County Council to pick up the rubbish and to examine it to see if the owners can be tracked and made an example of so as to discouraged such activity.

He has also urged the council to include Castlelough playground in any strategy to look after all lakeside amenities, including cleaning and maintaining the amenities.

He asked that opening and closing the playground in Castlelough playground be added to any strategy, warning the amenity was open to be vandalised at night due to its isolated location.
