Mad isn’t it?
And how much do property developers owe local authorities across the country in unpaid development fees.
A figure revealed in response to a question from Fine Gael TD Simon Harris on foot of Wicklow County Council attempts to pursue homeowners in Brook Meadow, Avoca, Co Wicklow (above) several weeks ago to pay outstanding development fees.
The council wanted every households to pay it €2,500 each.
However, the move was averted after the property developer made an agreement with the council.
Who will be next is anyone’s guess.
