Boyne Greenway: Non-statutory consultation open until 25 October

Meath Co Co has opened a “non-statutory” consultation into proposed routes for a cycle path stretching from Mornington to Drogheda. The current consultation seems to be aimed only at route selection.

Emerging Proposed Route

The project will be subject to a further statutory consultation when final plans are submitted, most likely to be to An Bord Pleanála given the proximity of the route to the protected habitats along the Boyne and Meath coast.

Protect East Meath objects to Marsh Road development

Protect East Meath lodged an objection to proposals to develop 450 housing units with an entrance from the Marsh Road opposite the FloGas site. This development has to potential to accommodate more than 1,200 people and will add 1000’s of car journeys to the already overburdened road network.

Of major concern are traffic, air pollution and noise impacts as well as concerns about effects on wintering birds and bats.

You can read our submission below. A decision on the proposed development will be made before 28 November 2019

Confirmation that Old Mill entered on Derelict Sites Register

Protect East Meath can now confirm that the Old Mill site in Julianstown has been entered on the Derelict Sites Register by Meath County Council after threats of legal action forced the local authority to take steps to require the owners to carry out works to clean up the site which has been derelict for more than 10 years.

Meath County Council is now required to keep the register updated with the actions taken by it to bring the dereliction to an end.
