Plan for Bal­roth­ery east urged

Fingal Independent - - NEWS -

A lo­cal coun­cil­lor has pushed for the early de­vel­op­ment of a Bal­roth­ery East Mas­ter­plan to ad­dress a prob­lem for a lo­cal school that is with­out play­ing fa­cil­i­ties.

Cllr David O’con­nor (NP) asked for the plan to be pri­ori­tised and was told by the coun­cil that although the plan is not cur­rently sched­uled to be among 13 mas­ter­plans the coun­cil is pre­par­ing over the next three years, it would com­mit to ‘re­view pri­ori­tis­ing the prepa­ra­tion of the Bal­roth­ery East Mas­ter­plan in the con­text of ad­dress­ing the ed­u­ca­tional re­quire­ments for the Bal­roth­ery area’.

Cllr O’con­nor said the plan was im­por­tant to pro­vide sports grounds for the school and also to pro­vide a new walk­way from Bal­roth­ery to Ardg­illan Cas­tle.

He said the cur­rent road be­tween the two lo­ca­tions is ‘not dead safe’ for pedes­tri­ans and he hoped that this land could be a ‘linkin the chain to bring us to Ardg­illan’.
