As part of the planning approval for the new three-school campus on the Ballinrea Road, Cork County Council was conditioned to provide a number of improvements to roads in the vicinity. It is starting to do that now in preparation for the schools’ expected opening in January 2020. It has advertised a planning application for road improvements between Carrigcourt and Glenwood to include:
– provision of new footpaths and cycleways
– uncontrolled pedestrian crossings
– junction realignment
– road narrowing and a raised table junction
– set down areas
– new road markings and signs
– installation of public lighting.
It proposes junction realignment at Carrigcourt, Dun Eoin and Glenwood with the installation of traffic calming and alterations to drainage.
The full planning application can be inspected at the Carrigaline Area Office on Church Road or purchased (at a reasonable fee) from Monday 10th December 2018 until Friday 18th January 2019. You can also access it here:
Submissions or Observations with respect to the proposed development may be made in writing to:
Cork County Council,
Regional & Local Road Design Office,
or emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
and must reach the Senior Engineer before 4pm on Friday 1st February 2019.
All submissions should be clearly marked “Ballinrea Road Improvement Scheme Part 8”.
In addition, after screening a determination was made that an EIA Report is not required. In accordance with Article 120 (3), as amended by S.I. No. 296 of 2018, a person may, within 4 weeks from the date of the planning notice (7 December 2018), apply to An Bord Pleanála for a screening determination as to whether the development would be likely to have significant effects on the environment. Such a submission should be addressed to the Secretary, An Bord Pleanála, 64, Marlborough Street, Dublin, 1.
