Parking

 

Cork County Council aims to provide as much reasonably located and free parking across the county as possible. In some areas of high density, such as major towns, pay parking bye-laws are in effect. This is to maximise the rotation of available car parking spaces for the benefit of both businesses and citizens. The areas where these restrictions apply can be seen below.

Derelict Sites & Dangerous Structures

Derelict Sites

A Derelict Site means any property or land which detracts, or is likely to detract, to a material degree from the amenity, character, or appearance of land in the neighbourhood in question because of neglected or unsightly condition.

 

Under the Derelict Sites Act 1990 the Council is obliged to issue a notice to the owners of the site/property to remedy the site/property non-derelict. 

 

If you want to report a Derelict Site, please do so in writing to your local Municipal District Office, with a map that outlines the area or property. Please note that complainant details are confidential.

What are the steps to putting a site on the Derelict Site Register?

1.      A complaint is received in writing;

2.      An inspection is carried out to ascertain the situation on site;

3.      If not derelict, file is closed and complainant is informed;

4.      If derelict, a notice is served to  carry out specific works within a timeframe;

5.      A second inspection will be carried out to see if works have been completed by owner(s);

6.      If works are complete, file is closed, complainant is informed;

7.      If works are not completed, a second notice is served, and if no improvements are made, the property is placed on the Derelict Sites Register;

8.      Levies and Interest are applied annually to derelict sites.

 

Dangerous Structures 

The Local Government (Sanitary Services) Act, 1964 provides for Local Authorities to deal with dangerous structures. A Notice can be served on owners of property deemed to be dangerous requiring that specific works to eliminate danger (Section 3(1) notice) be carried out thereby rendering the property safe. The provisions of the Act:

  1. Enable a prosecution to be brought against owners who do not comply with notices served
  2. Require a register to be maintained by the Local Authority
  3. Empower the Local Authority to carry out the necessary works itself and to charge the owners for the cost
  4. Empower compulsory purchase of land on which a dangerous structure was/is located

Further information is available from: http://www.citizensinformation.ie. 

You can contact your Municipal District Office should you require further information

Burial Grounds

Burial grounds (cemeteries) are the responsibility of the Local Authority. Each burial ground where plots are available for sale has a Registrar to manage the sale of plots for that particular cemetery. In some cases, the Registrar or caretaker will also maintain the burial ground.

 
If you want to purchase a burial plot, please contact the relevant cemetery registrar. You can find a list of burial grounds, prices, and the relevant Registrar’s contact details here.
 
Once the relevant allocation forms are submitted to the relevant office by the registrar, an invoice will issue to you for payment of the plot. After the payment is received, you will be issued with a Certificate of Right of Burial.

Please note that many burial grounds or graveyards are already full.  In some cemeteries, there are restrictions on the pre-purchase or buying in advance of burial plots. The purchasing of burial plots is subject to the Cemetery bye-laws, as adopted by the Elected Members.
 
Parishes operate some burial grounds while local groups also maintain other burial grounds.

All burials must be registered with Cork County Council and the location of the grave noted by the Registrar.

In addition to the provision of burial grounds, the Ballincollig-Carrigaline MD oversees the allocation of niches for the inurnment of ashes in the columbarium wall at St. James’ cemetery. The process to acquire a niche is the same as if you wanted to buy a burial plot: please contact the Registrar at St. James’ Cemetery, Chetwynd, Bandon Road.
 
One niche will cost €800, accommodating up to two urns, and €1,340 for a niche which will accommodate up to four urns. The capacity of each niche and the number of inurnments depends on the size of the urn in use. The cost of engraving of the niche plaque is borne by the purchaser.

The Development of Motorhome Services in County Cork Policy Paper 2018

The Caravan & Camping sector in Ireland is relatively small in terms of the accommodation mix used by overseas and domestic holiday makers.  There are a number of constraints on the sector, the main one being the shortage of quality pitches in suitable locations. For further information on the Policy document see link:

The Development of Motorhome Services in County Cork Policy Paper 2018

Licencing of Caravan & Camping Parks

The principal legislation governing the provision of sanitation and public health services in relation to mobile home parks, caravan parks and camping sites is the Local Government (Sanitary Services) Act 1948. Under part IV of this Act, the Local Authority may grant a licence to the occupier of the land and may attach certain conditions to such a licence.
