Development Control Department.

The primary activity of the Development Control Department is to monitor ongoing development in conventional housing estates which the council will take in charge while under construction and to liaise with developers to facilitate the taking in charge of estates which have been completed satisfactorily.

Taking In Charge Policy Statement.

Our taking in charge policy statement which was presented to full council in June 2008 sets out our policy, procedures and standards required for taking private residential housing estates in charge.

Report on Private Residential Developments (2012 - 2018).

The report on private residential developments (2012-2018) reviews the activity in the county over that period. The main part of the report sets out in Appendix A the taking in charge status of each estate in the county which has not been taken in charge to date. Kildare County Council will only consider the taking in charge of any estate when

  1. The developer formally requests the council to take the estate in charge

  2. The developer submits taking in charge documentation (As Constructed Drawings showing the location of services etc. vesting maps transferring ownership of the open spaces and CCTV surveys of the sewers).

  3. The development has been completed satisfactorily.

The developer of an estate will remain responsible for that estate until such time as it has been formally taken in charge by full council.
