Pitch and putt update
CONCERNS were raised about lighting at junctions along the Ecco Road.
Cllr Maeve Yore highlighted a problem with poor lighting at the junctions during a debate over Coxs Demense Regeneration.
Housing officer Aoife Lawlor said that after discussions with residents it was proposed to revisit and update some of the regeneration plans. The council heard that some of the changes were in order to reduce the possibility of anti social behaviour in certain areas. The new plans were adopted by the committee. CATHAOIRLEACH Conor Keelan submitted a motion to the September meeting of the Municipal Committee meeting seeking an update on the former pitch and putt course.
He asked that if, in light of plans for the new running track for the Muirhevnamor area, if there are plans to bring the pitch and putt back into use or to make it available for another amenity.
The meeting heard that the former pitch and putt facility has only reverted back to the local authority in recent times ‘ and no decision has been made in relation to any future uses.’ COUNCILLORS called for a ‘ less noisy, more environmentally friendly’ source of power for casual traders operating in Carlingford.
Cllr. Mark Dearey asked if there was any way metered power could be made available to the casual trader, to replace the ‘noisy and polluting’ generators.
Cllr. Antoin Watters said that pricing for metered power had been carried out, which came back at €18,000.
The council undertook to look into the matter further.
