Fingal seeks submissions on the proposed Royal Canal Urban Greenway routeFebruary 28, 2019
Fingal County Council is seeking submissions from the public on the proposed Royal Canal Urban Greenway route. The public consultation is open until March 25, 2019.
The route will serve Castleknock, Blanchardstown, Clonsilla, Coolmine and the wider Dublin 15 area. The proposed Urban Greenway will encourage recreation while offering an alternative transport choice for school children and commuters. This will bring significant environmental, economic and health benefits to the wider community.
Taking into account Royal Canal’s designation as a protected structure, the planned route for the Urban Greenway aims to protect and enhance the existing environment along the corridor.
The plans for the route will be on display until 25 March, 2019 in the Fingal County Council offices, Grove Road, Blanchardstown. To make a submission and find out more information, visit: https://consult.fingal.ie/en/browse.
Mayor of Fingal, Cllr Anthony Lavin, said: “I am delighted to see Fingal County Council engaging with the public to make progress on the route for the Royal Canal Urban Greenway. This is an important infrastructural development that will allow Fingal residents to make environmentally-friendly travel decisions safely.”
Chief Executive of Fingal County Council, Paul Reid, said: “With a growing population, it is important that we provide alternative travel options for students and those who have to commute for work. The Royal Canal Urban Greenway will allow for a more sustainable system of transport while protecting the area’s biodiversity. I look forward to seeing the public engagement to help progress this project.”
