Public Consultation No. 1

Phase 1 - Concept & Feasibility Stage

Leitrim County Council, is proposing to develop a Blueway Project approximately 8.5km in length along the route of the River Shannon from Carrick-on-Shannon to Leitrim Village and on to Battlebridge to connect to the existing Blueway which runs from Battlebridge to Acres Lake in Drumshanbo.

Jennings O’Donovan and Partners Consulting Engineers were appointed to provide multi-disciplinary Engineering/Environmental consultancy services for delivery of Phase 1 to Phase 5 of the TII Project Management Guidelines (TII PMG) for this project.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, an alternative initial Public Consultation Process will take place through Jennings O’Donovan, the Engineering and Environmental Project Consultant, delivering by post in June 2021, information on the proposed project to residents, business owners and stakeholders within the Scheme Area.  The letter drop will include an information leaflet, an outline of the Study Area and a questionnaire with a stamped addressed envelope for return.

The objective of the alternative Public Consultation Process is to seek initial views from the public in relation to the proposed Blueway and any issues the Project Team should address.

The first Non-Statutory public consultation will take place from 2pm on Wednesday 2nd June 2021 to 5pm Friday 25th June 2021. The purpose of this consultation is to inform the public and stakeholders of the Study Area being considered for the proposed Blueway from Carrick-on-Shannon to Battlebridge and to seek the views from the Public on the proposed project.

The questionnaire can be returned together with any submissions or observations to Jennings O’Donovan. Alternatively, submissions or observations made can be made by email.

The closing date for submissions is 5pm Friday 25th June 2021.
