Information Commissioner orders release of records on securing of site where notorious murder took place

The owners of the derelict house where teenager Ana Kriegel was murdered said delays in plans to secure the property were partly down to the “notoriety” of the site.

Internal records show how Fingal County Council repeatedly had to make contact with planning consultants for the owners of Glenwood House about their plans to secure the property and surrounding land.

They also show that plans to develop a nursing home on the site are now highly unlikely with the developers intending to seek planning permission for a different scheme.

The records were obtained from Fingal County Council after an appeal to the Information Commissioner, who decided they should be released in the public interest.
