Slope Remediation Project Ballymore Eustace

 

PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT ACT 2000 (As amended)

PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS 2001 (As amended) (PART 8)

Proposed Slope Remediation Project at Coghlanstown,

Ballymore Eustace, Co. Kildare.

 Reference P82019-06

 Pursuant to the requirements of the above, Kildare County Council proposes to develop a Slope Remediation Project at Coghlanstown, Ballymore Eustace. In August 2016 significant slope failure occurred along the north bank of the River Liffey, west of Ballymore Eustace. As a result the local road (L6047) has remained closed to the public. This development, which is the subject of this Part 8, will include the following:

  • The permanent realignment of approximately 160m of the River Liffey to follow the former alignment of the river approximately 150 years ago. A temporary diversion channel will be constructed as part of the works.
  • The slope stabilisation works will include; clearance of the remaining vegetation at the slope failure location, reprofile the slope to a stable gradient along the north bank of the River Liffey, establish scour protection at the toe of the slope, backfill of the temporary channel and reinstate lands.
  • The reconstruction of the local road (L6047) over a distance of 300m.
  • Maintain a road width of 5m, introduce a 2m grass verge, construct 100m of wall with 50m of safety barrier on the approach to and departure from the wall.

 Particulars of the proposed development will be available for inspection or purchase at a fee not exceeding the reasonable cost of making a copy during normal opening hours from Tuesday, 5 February 2019 until Monday, 4 March 2019 at the following locations:

Kildare County Council,   Level 2, Áras Chill Dara, Devoy Park, Naas                                                    

Naas Community Library,  Harbour View, Naas W91 A997                

Particulars of the proposed development will also be available to view on Kildare County Council’s website at http://kildare.ie/countycouncil/PublicConsultations-Part8Schemes/roadsandtransportation/index.html

The proposed development has undergone Appropriate Assessment Screening under the Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC) and the Planning and Development Act 2000, as amended and the Planning Authority has determined that a Stage 2 Appropriate Assessment is not required in this instance. In addition, the proposal has also undergone screening for Environmental Impact Assessment under the EIA Directive 2014/52/EU (and the relevant provisions of the Planning and Development Act 2000, as amended) and the Planning Authority has determined that there will be no real likelihood of significant effects on the environment arising from the proposed development and therefore an Environmental Impact Assessment is not required. In accordance with Section 120 of the Planning & Development Regulations (as amended), any person may, within 4 weeks from the date of this notice, apply to An Bord Pleanála for a screening determination as to whether the proposed development would be likely to have significant effects on the environment.
