NPPR list must be made available to Local Authorities and Garda

NPPR list must be made available to Local Authorities and Garda
The Non Principal Private Residence charge which has been introduced has given much needed revenue to local authorities
but it has another value that must be harnassed. Says Cllr JIMMY HARTE
“I asked the question at our Town Council meeting this month to find out if the list is available to the authorities.The information would be useful to the Local Authority who need to contact the owners of rented out properties.  Residents associations are doing a good job maintaining estates but on many occasions it is quite difficult to find out the owner of some properties. This is particularily frustrating when anti social behaviour is taking place in these properties.
The NPPR  list with  the Department of The Environment contains the home addresses of the landlord and this should be made available to the Council and the Garda so they can assist Residents Groups or neighbours in many estates.
I have tabled a motion for the County Council meeting on Monday next and will be seeking the support of the other members to require the Department to furnish this information.
