A LOCAL authority has written to NAMA warning them of "asset stripping" in ghost estates writes Eimear Ni Bhraonain
The agency has been told that there is evidence that infrastructure, including public lighting, kerbing and street furniture are being stolen from properties under its control.
Carlow County Council highlighted the problem in a letter to NAMA chairman Frank Daly on October 5.
The council asked for a list of properties under NAMA's charge in the county and warned that local politicians were concerned about the theft of lighting and street furniture from developments.
The council also said it may be interested in buying properties under NAMA control.
