10.1.7 Small Towns and Village Investment programme

Irish Water, in conjunction with Kilkenny County Council, has identified smaller settlements within the County which may be eligible for some of the investment fund of €5 million over the period of this Plan to address waste water deficiencies.  These are:

  • Bennettsbridge
  • Paulstown
  • Piltown
  • Fiddown
  • Glenmore
  • Windgap
  • Dungarvan
  • Inistioge

It is the Council’s policy to liaise with and work in conjunction with Irish Water for the provision, extension and upgrading of waste water collection and treatment systems in accordance with the requirements of the Core Strategy and further investment may take place under Irish Water’s Investment program for the period 2024-2029.

Kilkenny County Council will require that development in all main settlements connect to public waste water treatment facilities, subject to sufficient capacity being available which does not interfere with the Council’s ability to meet the requirements of the Water Framework Directive and the Habitats Directive.

The Council will support the servicing of rural villages (to include for serviced sites) to provide an alternative to one off housing in the open countryside.  The Council will require that septic tanks, proprietary effluent treatment systems and percolation areas are located and constructed in accordance with the recommendations and guidelines of the EPA and the Council in order to minimise the impact on surface water of discharges.
