Re: Re: Bonded Warehouse at Custom House Quay, Cork
In that case, it’s really time someone steps in and takes actual legal action before it’s far too late.
There’s far too much pussyfooting about when it comes to issues like this.
Can the local authority get involved ? or is the Port of Cork entirely responsible?
Cork City Council has a legal obligation to ensure that the Cork Bonded Warehouses do not fall into a state of disrepair.
Port of Cork holds the buildings in trust for the people of Ireland and has the power to force their tenants to maintain the building under the terms of the dilapidation schedule (at no cost to POC or the city).
Both parties are ultimately owned by the citizens of the state yet they show a scant regard for maintaining part of the cityâ€™s history.
I wonder sometimes if some fingers are not crossed hoping that the building would collapse or spontaneously combust?
