Taking in Charge

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
  • Surface Water Sewers
  • Foul Sewers
  • Open Spaces
  • Public lighting (taken in charge separately)

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.
