Proposed Footpath Development at Quarry Road, Waterford

CONSULTATION TYPE: SUBMISSIONS / OBSERVATIONS ACCEPTED
CONSULTATION END DATE: 12th October 2020

PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT ACT 2000 (as amended), PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS, 2001 (as amended), ARTICLE 81 OF PART 8 OF THE PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS 2001 (as amended).

In accordance with Article 81 of Part 8 of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001 (as amended), notice was hereby given that Waterford City and County Council proposes to carry out the following development: Proposed Quarry Road Footpath

Quarry Road requires a new footpath from existing housing estate at Bowefield to link up with Knockhouse Road in order to give pedestrian connectivity to the estate. With current built houses and approved planning developments there will be approximately 175 houses here in the coming years. The main advantage to this project will be the provision of a safe access/egress for pedestrians from Bowefield and other housing developments in this area. It will also provide a link for pedestrians to the City centre which is currently absent due to lack of road width.

In accordance with Section 250 of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001 as amended, the Council has carried out an appropriate assessment screening and has determined that there “is no potential for significant effects on the Conservation Objectives for the River Suir SAC. No further assessments required”. In accordance with Article 120 of the Planning & Development Regulations 2001 as amended, the Council has carried out an EIA screening and has determined that an EIAR is not required. 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.

Due to Covid 19 restrictions plans and particulars of the proposed development will not be available for inspection in our public offices but can be accessed anytime online at www.waterfordcouncil.ie for the period Tuesday 1st September, 2020 to Monday 28th September 2020 inclusive.

A copy of the plans and particulars can also be requested by contacting Aideen Jacob on 0761 102020 or by email at the address below. Submissions or observations with respect to the proposed development, dealing with the proper planning and sustainable development of the area in which the proposed development would be situated, may be made in writing, to Aideen Jacob, Administrative Officer, Roads & Transportation Department, Waterford City & County Council, Menapia Building, The Mall, Waterford or by emailing ajacob@waterfordcouncil.ie before 4p.m. on Monday 12th October, 2020.
