Organiser, Councillor Joe Conway (Ind), who has been campaigning for many years for the local authority and land owner to remove the partially-built structure, is asking as many people as possible to come along and sign a petition or even bring a placard. He said the derelict building – left standing for 15 years – was a serious safety concern to 700 or so residents in the area, many of whom have young children.
At a recent Council meeting, Cllr Conway said it would cost €25,000 to remove the warehouse. He recalled a meeting of Tramore Town Council in March 2014, when the town Manager and then Director of Planning gave councillors ‘the welcome news’ that a bond was in existence to cover Moonvoy Estate, Tramore and that the derelict warehouse at the entrance would be demolished before the year was out. However this never transpired.
The protest takes place at the estate at 11.30am on Saturday.
