Public Consultation – Tramore Ring Road Pedestrian & Cycle Improvements

Waterford City & County Council proposes to undertake the construction of a 3km long pedestrian and cycle improvement scheme along the R675 Tramore Ring Road between Riverstown Roundabout and Newtown Roundabout, Tramore.

The proposed works include:

  • Construction of a dedicated two-way cycle track separated from vehicle traffic by a raised kerb or grass verge.

  • Upgrade of 5no roundabouts to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • Construction of 3 No. signal-controlled pedestrian crossing points as indicated on the drawings.

The drawings together with the information leaflet are available for inspection on Waterford City and County Council’s consultation portal at consult.waterfordcouncil.ie and is also on display in our Customer Services Departments in Bailey’s New Street in the City and Davitt’s Quay, Dungarvan from Tuesday 3rd October 2023 to Tuesday 31st October 2023.

PUBLIC MEETING this Saturday: Draft Town Centre First plan for Portlaw

 

Waterford City and County Council, in partnership with Portlaw Town Team, is pleased to announce the launch of the public consultation on the draft Portlaw Town Centre First Plan.

The plans will be on display in Portlaw Library and all are invited to an event to discuss the Town Centre First Plan and to celebrate the potential of Portlaw on Malcomson Square, between 12pm – 5pm on Saturday 23 September 2023.

Portlaw has been selected as one of 26 towns in Ireland to participate in this new initiative from the Irish Government.

The Draft Town Centre First Plan presents a vision for the future of Portlaw and a series of projects suitable for funding applications. The draft vision statement for Portlaw reads:

“As Ireland’s first model village and an inspiration to many, Portlaw was planned as the best possible place in which to live and work. With our unique streets, our waterways and woodlands, Portlaw is a special place with a story to tell. Today we look back with pride and forward with confidence, rediscovering and renewing Portlaw’s pioneering ambition for the town and all its people.”

The draft plan has been developed by the Portlaw Town Team, composed of local residents and business owners, with input from elected members and has been facilitated by urban designers, The Paul Hogarth Company and Hall Black Douglas architects. It includes proposals for new community facilities, active travel connections and civic spaces, all designed to complement the future restoration of Mayfield House and the former Tannery.

Chair of the Portlaw Town Team, Paudie Coffey explained that:

“We have been working hard over the past few months to prepare this plan for Portlaw, which builds on many years of work to improve the town and also on the recommendations of the 2022 Community Strategic Plan.”

Welcoming the public consultation process, Cathaoirleach of Comeragh District Council, Cllr. Seánie Power said that:

“The Council is delighted to be involved in this new planning initiative and that Portlaw – with its wonderful history, heritage and environment – is included as one of the pilot towns. It is now over to the people of Portlaw to take a look at the draft plan, give your feedback and share your ideas. The results will, hopefully, include a number of positive projects for the town and a period of significant regeneration and development”.

The public are invited to view draft plan online at www.waterfordcouncil.ie/PortlawTCF and to complete the short online survey by Thursday 28 September 2023.

Public Participation: Identification of Bathing Waters

Local authorities must identify official bathing areas in their area every year so that they can be monitored for safety, water quality and their level of use.  To help with this process, Waterford City and County Council is asking people who swim at beaches, lakes and rivers to tell them if they think they should maintain existing designated bathing waters designations or give a new official bathing area designation to areas that are commonly used for swimming, but not identified at the moment.

Under European and Irish law, Irish local authorities must identify bathing waters each year so that these areas can be monitored to ensure they meet stringent microbiological water quality standards. In some cases, the official bathing areas are also the areas where local authorities focus their resources providing lifeguards during the summer season.  These laws also require that the local authority prepares detailed descriptions or profiles for each of the identified bathing water sites that describe not just the bathing area but also areas in the surface waters catchment area that could be a source of pollution. The profiles include an assessment the risk of pollution and what action would be taken if pollution occurs.

If you are a regular swimmer and want to help your Council decide which bathing areas should be classified as such, it might be helpful to consider the following:

  • How your swimming area has been used up to now
  • How many people use the site
  • What facilities exist at the site and how accessible it is
  • Any safety issues

If you wish to propose your favourite beach/river etc. as a new bathing water site or comment on an existing site please visit https://bit.ly/IdentificationOfBathingWaters2023

Closing date for submissions to Waterford City and County Council is 28/9/2023.

The bathing water quality results and annual classification of bathing waters can be viewed at www.beaches.ie. The latest available EPA report Bathing Water in Ireland Report can be viewed here: https://www.epa.ie/publications/

-ENDS-


Note to editors:

Local authorities are required under the Bathing Waters Directive and the Bathing Water Quality Regulations 2008 (SI No 79 of 2008) to identify bathing waters on an annual basis. The Directive requires that water quality at all designated bathing waters meets stringent microbiological standards in order to protect the health of people who choose to bathe there.

Reminder: Last Call for submissions on Draft Dungarvan/Ballinroad & Tramore Local Area Plans 2023-2029

Waterford City and County Council has published pre-draft ‘Issues Papers’ for the Dungarvan/Ballinroad Local Area Plan and the Tramore Local Area Plan.

The purpose of these LAPs is to set out an overarching strategy for the proper planning and sustainable development of Dungarvan/Ballinroad and Tramore over the life of the LAPs to 2029.

The LAPs will incorporate a spatial framework for guiding the future development of transportation, regeneration, heritage, social and community infrastructure/ amenities and natural/ cultural assets in both Dungarvan/Ballinroad and Tramore.

The LAPs will be based on and be fully consistent with the Waterford City and County Development Plan 2022 – 2028, and in particular the; The Core Strategy, Vision, Strategic Outcomes, Land Use Zoning Objectives, Housing Strategy and other strategies underpinning the Development Plan. In other words, the LAP will give a local focus to the strategies of the Development Plan.

The LAP process provides a fresh opportunity to take a ‘big picture’ approach to looking at the key issues affecting Dungarvan/Ballinroad and Tramore and plot a development strategy for their future sustainable growth and regeneration. Therefore, local input is considered vital to the entire LAP process and the Planning Authority values what you have to say. It is intended that these Issues Papers will kick-start interest and debate which will provide helpful feedback, and result in stronger and more informed Local Area Plans.
