Bandon businessman Aidan Holland said 27 businesses had signed a petition committing to withholding rates if the Office of Public Works (OPW) does not have the scheme started by June 30th.

“We only started this on Tuesday and so far 27 businesses have signed up, pledging to withhold over €550,000 in rates if the work hasn’t started by then,” said Mr Holland.

“Every business that we have approached has signed the petition and there are over 200 businesses in Bandon so I would expect that we will exceed the €1 million mark in rates.”
