Ah yes welcome to the beautiful countryside, farming rural town of Ballyboughal where the sheep sleep all day and the leaves of the trees rustle in the wind….
Anyhow, Deputy Kennedy has been communicating with the Ballyboughal Community Council…. [?] and emailed me this [quote] detailed breakdown of development levies for the Swiftcourt Developments Site from Fingal County Council.
It’s the only news I can get, for those asking.
I have emailed both Michael [Michael.Kennedy[at]Oireachtas[dot]ie] and Liam Kindregan this post.
The approved development is for mixed use and is calculated on 1383 sq metres of commercial development and 9431 sq metres of residential development. There are numerous different house types and changes under Additional Information so it is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to quantify a unit based levy if that is what is required. There is also a separate levy for open space shortfall.
The amount outstanding is €1,480,000 of which €1,175,000 is the standard levy and €305,000 is for open space shortfall. All of the latter figure goes to Parks Division and the former figure is broken down as follows; 48.84% to Transportation, 34.9% to Water Services, 15.68% to Community/Parks and 0.58% to Regeneration.
A sum of €493,310 has been paid to date and has been apportioned in accordance with the above %’s as follows;
Water Services €136,603
Parks-Open Space Shortfall €101,895
Can I suggest that if the Ballyboughal Community Council have any further queries in relation to this matter that they contact Liam Kindregan direct on 01-8905760 or liam.kindregan[at]fingalcoco[dot]ie
