In accordance with Section 179 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 as amended and Part 8, Article 81 of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001, as amended, Kilkenny County Council hereby gives notice of proposals pertaining to the following development:

 

Development of a temporary access road, temporary construction compound and temporary site access ramp to remain in situ for a period of three years to facilitate construction of the South East Greenway in Ferrybank.    The site for the proposed compound and access ramp is immediately adjacent to the line of the old railway and future Greenway and is on lands owned by Michael Doyle Civil engineering at Rathculliheen and Abbeylands.  Construction access to the compound will be via a temporary access road connecting to the existing terminus of the Clover Meadows Avenue off the R711.

 

The proposal put forward provides for the following:

 

  • Construction of a 5 metre wide temporary construction access road from the end of the existing public road at Clover Meadows
  • Temporary Site boundary fencing of 2.4m high Paladin fencing to entire perimeter
  • Temporary Construction compound with an area of 3,527m2 surfaced in hardcore
  • Temporary 4 metre wide access ramp in a 1:20 slope from the construction compound to the greenway
  • Temporary fencing and signage

 

In accordance with the requirements of Article 120 (1) (a) of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001 (as amended) the Planning Authority has made a preliminary examination of the nature, size and location of the proposed development.  The authority has concluded that there is no real likelihood of significant effects on the environment arising from the proposed development and a determination has been made that an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is not required.

As per Article 120 (3) of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001 (as amended) where any person considers that the development proposed to be carried out would be likely to have significant effects on the environment, he or she may, at any time before the expiration of four weeks beginning on the date of the publication of this notice apply to An Bord Pleanála for a screening determination as to whether the development would be likely to have a significant effect on the environment.
