And does anyone know why there is is such ignorance towards the architectural heritage in Cork? Mount Vernon, Winthrop arcade now this... So sad.
I does not matter who the owner is. It is the responsibility of a local authority to ensure that any site or building within their functional area does not become (or continue to be) derelict.
And the definition of a derelict site is very clear in the Act;
..a derelict area means any land (in this section derelict site. referred to as "the land in question") which detracts, or is likely to detract, to a material degree from the amenity, character or appearance of land in the neighbourhood of the land in question because of;
( b ) the neglected, unsightly or objectionable condition of the land or any structures on the land in question
