News Item

Those of you who read our local newspapers will have seen two interesting items advertised as open for submissions from the general public, namely the Kerry County Development Plan 2015-2021 and the Lough Leane Loop Trail Project.

The County Development Plan is a very important document, which is reviewed every six years, so, if you think the present Plan is too strict/too loose/inaccurate/should include extra information etc., now is your chance to have your say. A draft plan has been prepared which is on public display from 24 January to 7 April. It can be downloaded from the Council’s website, www.kerrycoco.ie/cdp or hard copies can be viewed in County Council offices, including public libraries. Submissions or observations may be made either on-line via www.kerrycoco.ie/cdp or in written form to Noell O’Connor, Planning Policy Unit, Kerry County Council, Rathass, Tralee, clearly marked ‘Submission – Draft County Development Plan’ They must be received before 5pm on Monday 7 April 2014.

The second item open for comment, the Lough Lein Loop Trail Project, is a proposal to develop a walking/cycling route around Lough Lein. Various route options are being considered at present and general submissions from the public are invited up to 28 February. Your comments should be submitted in writing to Administrative Officer, Roads and Transportation, Kerry County Council, Rathass, Tralee or by e-mail to roads@kerrycoco.ie and should include the title ‘Lough Lein Loop Trail Project’. It is very important that the final route chosen does not have any adverse impact on Killarney National Park. We will be discussing both these document at our monthly meetings, which are held in Maeve O’Donnell’s house, 16 Denny St., Tralee on the first Thursday of the month at 8.00 p.m. All members are welcome to attend.
