Council to undertake assessments on Greenway by end of June

Radio Kerry report that Kerry County Council will undertake assessments on the Tralee Fenit rail line by the end of June. 

The examinations are necessary for screening reports, which form part of the planning process for the Tralee Fenit Greenway.

These reports will determine if Environmental Impact and Natura Impact assessments are needed, and whether the planning application will have to go to An Bord Pleanala.

The council’s ecologists have to walk the rail line and undertake preliminary assessments for the screening reports, and once they’re done the scope of the planning process and resources needed will become clear.

The local authority says it’s hoped these walks will completed by the end of June.

The council says significant work has been done in the past 12 months on securing the legal agreement with CIE on the transfer of the land on the rail line, and it’s their objective is to progress the scheme this year.
