Cllr. John Naughten has welcomed the start of work to clean up a derelict site in Monksland, Athlone.
“The work being funded by Roscommon County Council to clean up a derelict site in Monksland, which is known locally as the Parkway site, is extremely welcome,”
“I have been raising the condition of this site from a health and safety point of view with Roscommon County Council on an ongoing basis, with the support of my Council colleagues.
“The residents in the area were very concerned that a serious incident would occur at this location due to the fact that the site was unsecured and a number of derelict portacabins, which were in a dangerous condition remained on site at the location. I am delighted that work is now underway to improve this location," the Fine Gael Councillor remarked.
