Derelict buildings on North Main Street acquired by City Council
Four derelict buildings on North Main Street are to be acquired by Cork City Council.
A report from the Irish Examiner this morning says An Bord Pleanala has approved the compulsory purchase orders of the buildings at 62,63,64 and 65 North Main Street, saying that they considered them to be derelict.
The report from An Bord Pleanala said that the buildings were in ‘ruinous and dangerous condition’, and ‘neglected and unsightly”.
The buildings have been on the derelict sites register since 2015, with number 63 North Main Street partially collapsing two years ago – the structure has bee supported by steel frames since.
The City Council began the process to acquire the four buildings last summer, along with two properties on Barrack Street – the board approved the compulsory acquisition of those two properties in December.
