Refurbishment of Woodland Park site gets underway

Refurbishing work on the controversial Woodland Park site in Dundalk began in earnest today (Monday) as diggers rolled in to prepare the ground for construction.

Speaking at the September meeting of the Dundalk Municipal Committee, Cllr. John McGahon said that to date, €557,000 has been spent on Woodland Park. €240,000 of that was used to clean up 1,100 tons of domestic waste that was left behind and the remaining €317,000 has been spent on refurbishing the site. The final cost will be €681,000. €124,000 more than originally expected.

Twenty-three families were living on the site when it was closed in January.
