Draft Wicklow CDP 2016 - 2022
Non Principal Private Residence (NPPR) Charge Grace Period Deadline 31st August 2014
Wicklow County Council advises that making contact with their offices or the NPPR Bureau by e-mail before the deadline can freeze any additional penalties that might otherwise come into effect on 1st September.
The six month period during which further NPPR late penalties cease to accumulate in respect of non compliant properties is due to expire at midnight on Sunday 31st August 2014. Persons wishing to settle their liability can still do so online at www.nppr.ie
Significant numbers have paid the NPPR liability since the 1st March and many more payments are being processed at present. Wicklow County Council is aware that many more people want to settle their NPPR liabilities before the expiry of the deadline on 31st August. Some people may need to clarify aspects of the liability and as a consequence significant numbers of people are making contact by telephone to Wicklow County Council offices. Due to the huge increase in the numbers calling local authority offices, not all callers will get through and we apologise for this inconvenience.
Any person who wishes to settle their NPPR liability and cannot get through to local authority offices by telephone can have further late penalties frozen by making contact with either the National Bureau by e-mail at email@example.com or by making contact with Wicklow County Council by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org before the expiry of the deadline on 31st August indicating the property for which they want to settle the NPPR liability and giving their contact details. Any person who doesn’t have access to e-mail may correspond in writing with us at Wicklow County Council, County Buildings, Station Road, Wicklow Town, Co. Wicklow by the deadline of 31st August. Staff dealing with the NPPR liability will make contact as soon as possible after 1st September to make the arrangements for settling the liability.
Wicklow County Council will deal with all cases presented to them on an individual basis taking into account the circumstances of the property owner.
Wicklow County Council will again be grant aiding the planting of trees by Tidy Towns, Residents and Community Groups in 2014.

Boil Water Notice - Ballysallagh Well Water Supply (Exempted)
Wicklow County Council wishes to advise consumers that the water from the Ballysallagh Well Water Supply (Exempted) must be boiled prior to use.
You are advised:-
- Boil all water for consumption Bring water to a vigorous boil and allow to cool. Cover and store in a refrigerator or cold place. Water from the hot tap is not safe to drink.
- Use clean containers when storing boiled water.
- Discard all ice cubes. Make ice from cooled boiled water.
- Boil all water for hygiene and first aid use including brushing teeth, cleaning wounds, making medicine, sterilising babies bottles.
- Use cooled boiled water when preparing food that will not be cooked e.g. salads, fruit, or mixing cold sweets/desserts.
- Prepare babies feeds with water brought to the boil once and cooled. Do not use water that has been re-boiled several times. Boiled tap water is preferred for the preparation of babies feeds rather than bottled water labelled “Natural Mineral Water” as this may contain higher concentrations of some minerals (e.g. Sodium, Nitrate), than is recommended for infant feeding.
- Use hot tap water and washing up liquid to clean surfaces, dishes and other utensils.
- Do not use dishwashers, as the water may not get hot enough.
- It is safe to use tap water, which has not been boiled for baths/showers, general cleaning, flushing toilets and washing clothes.
