Cork City Council Requests Immediate Measures at North Main St Site
Cork City Council today informed the owners of 62, 63 and 64 North Main Street that immediate measures must be taken to ensure public safety and protect the heritage of the site:
- The property owners were informed that the facade of no 63 must be stabilised. Cork City Council is working with the building owners to ensure these works are commenced without delay.
- More suitable site hoarding is also to be put in place.
- Key elements of nos 62 and no 64 also need to be stabilised to ensure further collapse risk is eliminated as works to no. 63 progress. Again, Cork City Council is working with the building owners to ensure that the works are commenced as soon as possible.
Cork City Council will continue to work with the building owners over the coming days to identify what further works need to be undertaken at the buildings, bearing in mind the Council's commitments to public safety, the city’s built heritage and to supporting North Main Street so that it remains a vibrant trading street.
