A SPOKESPERSON FOR the Department of the Environment says an announcement regarding Priory Hall can be expected “at some stage” today.
Environment Minister Phil Hogan’s self imposed deadline to reach a solution to the deadlock over the north Dublin apartment complex expires today.
The Minister, who had been under pressure from residents to intervene in the process, acknowledged on 16 September that a mediation process presided over by a former judge had not been able to come up with a way forward, and promised to report back by today on “a proposed resolution”.
Talks have been ongoing over the last three weeks between Dublin City Council, the Irish Banking Federation, NAMA, former residents and other stakeholders.
It’s nearly two years since over 250 residents were evacuated from the complex due to fire safety concerns.
Speaking last month, Minister Hogan said that the Donaghmede complex may have to be demolished as it’s now so run down.
