Shane Folan, Labour’s local election candidate for the Donaghmede Ward has called for a quick resolution for the Belmayne residents impacted by the potentially hazardous balconies.
Shane said: “The reports we have seen this week detailing the substandard building practices are very worrying. We cannot stand idly by while people are living in these dwellings”
He continued: “While I am glad that Clúid Housing are taking a positive approach to this where they are responsible, it is a sad state of affairs that it had to come to this.
“It is up to the property manager, to ensure that all of the blocks are fully compliant with Fire Safety standards, and address any discrepancies urgently.”
Shane Folan concluded: “The property management should engage with residents urgently in order to ease any worries they may have and address these problems immediately.”
