There have been calls for a full review and audit of apartments in the Dublin Docklands after the Longboat Quay complex was found to have fire safety issues.
Dublin Fire Brigade is outlining what work needs to be done on the 299 affected units, and a timeframe for completion in a notification being sent to the management company of the apartments, as well as to developer Bernard McNamara's Gendsong Ltd and the Dublin Docklands Development Authority.
However, it is unclear who will foot the bill for the works. Dublin Docklands Development Authority has committed to paying for some of the work, but it is unclear whether the Department of the Environment will pay the balance, or the owners.
Local Sinn Féin councillor Chris Andrews (pictured) said other apartments in the area must be checked out.
He said: "The entire Docklands area has to have an audit carried out...so the issues which are clearly very serious can be identified.
"At the moment we don’t know the extent of the difficulties in the Docklands area."
Renua leader Lucinda Creighton said the Longboat Quay issues showed the need for stricter building regulations.
Speaking in the Dáil yesterday evening, she said: "The building regulations that were introduced by this Government in 2014 will have no affect on any future developments, because it is a toothless regulation...that is not independently certified and essentially allows developers to govern themselves."
