Pitch and putt up­date

The Argus - - NEWS -

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.
