Kilmeaden estate has been “neglected”

A KILMEADEN housing estate has been “neglected”, according to a local Councillor.Residents at Fán Glas have been expressing concerns at the lack of maintenance and overall appearance of their estate.Raising the issue at the April Comeragh District meeting of Waterford City & County Council, Cllr John O’Leary (FF) said the roads in the estate urgently need to be resurfaced.

He pointed out that some manholes are almost a foot over the level of the road surface.He asked for an update on the taking in charge process which would see Waterford City & County Council assume liability and responsibility for the roads, footpaths and public areas associated with the estate.Cllr O’Leary said there seemed to be a “battle” between the Council and the builder.
