😮 I cannot understand why the Derelict Site Act 1990 in not used more often by LAâ€™s. They are required by law not to allow what you describe happen.
9.â€”lt shall be the duty of every owner and occupier of land, including a statutory body and a State authority, to take all reasonable steps to ensure that the land does not become or does not continue to be a derelict site.
10.â€”It shall be the duty of a local authority to take all reasonable steps (including the exercise of any appropriate statutory powers) to ensure that any land situate in their functional area does not become or continue to be a derelict site.
( a ) in the opinion of a local authority it is necessary to do so, in order to prevent land situate in their functional area from becoming or continuing to be a derelict site, or
they shall serve a notice in writing on any person who appears to them to be the owner or occupier of the said land.
(2) A notice under this section shallâ€”
( a ) specify the measures which the local authority or the Minister, as the case may be, consider to be necessary in order to prevent the land from becoming or continuing to be a derelict site,
( b ) direct the person on whom the notice is being served to take such measures as may be specified in the notice, and
( c ) specify a period (being not less than one month) within which such measures are to be taken; provided, however, the notice shall not have effect untilâ€”
(i) the expiration of fourteen days from the date of service of the notice, or
(ii) if any representations are made under subsection (3), the date on which the local authority notify the person making such representations that they have considered the said representations.
