The most recent amendments to the taking in charge provisions of the planning code were made in the Planning and Development (Amendment) Act 2018 with a view to further strengthening and streamlining the taking-in-charge process. I have no current plans to conduct a review of the taking-in-charge provisions of the Act.
Management companies are not covered under the taking in charge process, as developments which have a management company in place were, by their very nature, to remain as private developments. The majority of developments which are maintained by management companies incorporate multi-unit developments and are governed under the Multi-Unit Developments Act 2011.
Earlier this week (21 September) I announced funding allocations under the new multi-annual capital investment programme for the progressive resolution of housing estates with developer provided water services infrastructure. These are estates that are not taken-in-charge and do not have their water services networks connected to the public (Irish Water) network. Details of the announcement are available on my Department's website.
