Councillor Calls For Report On Millfield Manor To Be Released

: 06/19/2017 - 07:43

A Newbridge councillor is asking that KCC ask the Dept. of Housing to release the report commissioned in the wake of the fire at Millfield Manor

6 homes in the estate were destroyed by fire in a period of half an hour on March 31st, 2015.

Following an examination by the Kildare County Council appointed expert, which found points of concern, the then Minister for the Environment set up a Steering Group to "address non-compliance with fire safety requirements in residential developments".

The incident at Millfield Manor is the "case study" element of this review, which was scheduled to report "on or before 30th January" 2016.

The then Housing Minister, in response to a parliamentary question in last December, noted that  "the report remains under consideration pending clarification on a number of issues."

The motion, by Ind. Kildare/Newbridge Cllr. Joanne Pender,  will be debated at this week's meeting of the Municipal District,
