The site located along the L4033 Carrick Road and commences from the junction with the L4034 Priest Road at its southern end and to the GAA grounds near junction with R680 Kilmeaden to Fiddown Road on the north side. The current road layout is two way traffic, bounded by residential houses for much of its length. The northern section of Carrick Road is adjacent to agricultural lands and one residential property.


The works will include upgrade of existing defective footpaths, widening of existing footpaths, new footpath construction, uncontrolled pedestrian crossing, controlled crossings with raised table, new boundary treatments, accommodation works, build outs, new road markings, upgraded road signage, services diversions, new surface water drainage system and all ancillary works necessary for completion.


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 an Appropriate Assessment is not 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.
