The Taking in Charge document outlines Wicklow County Council’s policy in relation to taking in charge of private housing developments i.e. A development of two or more houses.
For all private housing developments, the following elements of a development will be considered by the Council for taking in charge:
- Roads and footways
- Water mains

Liability and responsibility for the above elements of a development will remain with the Developer until such time as Wicklow County Council has taken them in charge.
