GLENBEIGH- CAHERSIVEEN GREENWAY CO KERRY
long-standing project has reached an interesting stage in that the legality of
the County Council’s proposal to use a compulsory purchase order for the lands
needed for the trail is to be the subject to an oral hearing of An Bord Pleanala
on Oct 8. The use of CPOs for large-scale Greenways such as this is very much in
line with KIO policy.
ESTATE CO WICKLOW
Estate has been sold to a foreign buyer for an undisclosed sum. The buyers have
indicated that they will continue with the status quo of allowing public access
on a “grace and favour basis”. It remains to be seen if they will honour
this commitment. Meanwhile, we have discovered that new fencing has been erected
on the eastern boundary of the Estate blocking at least two access routes
including one at the Scotch village. As
the fencing was erected without planning permission, the county council is
taking the necessary steps to enforce the planning laws which should lead to the
removal of the fencing.
time have a look at our website:
It has a dated look due to the
number of problems going back over many years that still await resolution. It
maybe that, without our knowledge, some of these problems have been solved.
Please let us know if that is the case.
you come across any access problems please contact us.
The fencing of many upland areas is still a major concern. Fencing of
upland areas requires planning permission and we do try to keep tabs on it. However, we are very stretched at the
moment. So if you feel that you could monitor these applications in your county
please contact us. It’s a simple and not very onerous job.
2 If you come
across new, as opposed to replacement fencing, please send us details on a map
so that we can check it out. It may or may not have planning permission.
