Proposed Amendment - Newbridge Local Area Plan

 

PROPOSED AMENDMENT NO. 1 TO THE NEWBRIDGE LOCAL AREA PLAN 2013 – 2019

Pursuant to Section 20(3) of the Planning and Development Acts 2000 - 2014, notice is hereby given that Kildare County Council has prepared Proposed Amendment No. 1 to the Newbridge Local Area Plan 2013 – 2019.

Pursuant to the Strategic Environmental Assessment Directive (2001/42/EC) and the Planning and Development (Strategic Environmental Assessment) Regulations, 2004, S.I. no. 436/2004, as amended by S.I. no. 201/2011, an Environmental Screening Report has been prepared on the likely significant effects on the environment of implementing the proposed amendment to the Local Area Plan.

Pursuant to Articles 6(3) and 6(4) of the EU Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC) an Appropriate Assessment Screening Report has been prepared.

Pursuant to Section 28 of the Planning and Development Acts 2000 – 2014 a Strategic Flood Risk Assessment has been prepared.

Following the adoption of the Newbridge Local Area Plan 2013-2019 it became apparent that a small number of areas zoned as Open Space and Amenity in the Newbridge Local Area Plan 2013-2019 did not reflect existing established uses or previously permitted developments. To rectify these issues, Proposed Amendment No. 1 to Newbridge Local Area Plan 2013 - 2019 relates to the rezoning of lands from “F” Open Space and Amenity to “B” Existing Residential at the following locations:

  • Crotanstown, Grange.
  • Southern Relief Road, Moorefield.
  • Standhouse Road.
  • Watercress Manor, Morristownbillar.
