Dublin City Council is the designated authority with powers to enforce the statutory requirements arising under the Fire Safety Act, the Building Control Acts and the Planning and Development Acts, all of which are at issue in relation to Priory Hall. I have no direct role in relation to enforcement activity, or in relation to the remedial works which have been undertaken to date in the complex in question, or which continue to be necessary. Notwithstanding the above, my Department is being kept informed by Dublin City Council of developments in relation to the matter
The legal proceedings in relation to the Priory Hall complex are continuing.
