Tipperary County Council has been asked by two councillors to investigate a building waste dump that has developed on Carrick-on-Suir’s Pill Road.
Carrick-on-Suir Cllrs Kieran Bourke and David Dunne complained about the dump site at the rear of the old Surehaul Garage at the latest monthly meeting of Carrick-on-Suir Municipal District.
Cllr Bourke told council officials the dump site contained a mountain of building rubbish and described it as an “eyesore”.
He asked if such a dump site required planning permission and if so had planning approval been obtained for the site?
“If not I would expect the planning officials to cease operations going on there and enforce that the site be cleared immediately.”
The Fianna Fail councillor reminded the council it was processing a Part 8 planning application for Carrick’s Regeneration Scheme to promote the town and attract more tourists but here there was a huge tip site visible from the N24.
Cllr Dunne told the meeting he was also concerned about the site.
Caroline Conway of Tipperary County Council’s planning department said she was not familiar with the dump site but promised to look into it immediately and liaise with colleagues in the council’s environment section in relation to the matter.
