9th August, 2022


In accordance with Part XI of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended) and Part 8, Article 81 of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001 (as amended), notice was hereby given that Waterford City & County Council proposes to carry out improvement works to an existing 450m section of sea wall along Clonea Road (R675), townland of Duckspool, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford.

The proposed development will comprise the following:

1. Replacement of 80m section of stone sea wall with reinforced concrete cantilever flood wall, with stone cladding façade (chainage 0m – 80m)

2. Raising of the recently constructed 50m section of flood wall by 0.55m, via additional stonework, to achieve the required flood protection level of 3.27m OD (chainage 80m to 130m);

3. Replacement of 320m section of an existing stone sea wall with king post piled wall, with stone cladding façade (chainage 130m to 450m), and

4. Provision of a berm to assist the halting of flood waters and safety barrier across the berm and a section of wall.

The proposed development has undergone Appropriate Assessment Screening under the Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC), the Planning and Development Act 2000, as amended, and the European Communities (Bird and Natural Habitats) Regulations 2011-2015. Waterford City & County Council has determined that an Appropriate Assessment is not required. The proposed development, individually or in combination with other plans or projects, will not have a significant effect on a European Site.

In addition, the proposal has also undergone screening for Environmental Impact Assessment under Article 120 of the Planning & Development Regulations 2001 as amended and Waterford City & County Council has determined that there is no real likelihood of significant effects on the environment arising from the proposed development and that an Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIAR) is not required.
