Man flouted planning laws

A man who unlawfully built a massive refrigerator repair centre alongside the Naas dual carriageway has had to demolish it and pay a €75,000 fine for contempt of court.

Liam Nevin’s “flouting of planning laws and intentional breach of court orders” has cost him hundreds of thousands of euros in costs for design, construction, demolition, fines and legal fees.

Judge Jacqueline Linnane told Damien Keaney, counsel for the planning authority, that Mr Nevin, Commons Road, Loughlinstown, Co Dublin, had brought the displeasure of the courts upon himself.
