Letterkenny Town Council has just started a period of public consultation on a proposed addition to the Letterkenny & Environs Development Plan, 2003-2009. The plan relates to the development of the lands in the “area of Town Centre extension”- the lands bounded between the Pearse Road, Port Road and River Swilly.
The plan proposes a number of important developments in the area, relating to public walkways, open spaces and commercial developement, and sets the guidelines for all future development in the area.
The plan provides a number of exciting opportunities for the the development of the town, most notably the “Railway Square” public space. The plans can be inspected at the Town Council Offices, at the Public Services Centre on Neil T Blaney Road. Some information is available online at the Donegal County Council website, including this map of the area (3mb, PDF)
I’d encourage everyone with an interest in the development of the town to visit and inspect the plans. The Consultation Process will be open for submissions until the end of the month, and all submissions will be considered.
