Second phase of Public Consultation on the Curragh Plains Underway
This project is about highlighting the importance and significance of the Curragh Plains and developing policies and management actions that will make sure the area is appropriately conserved, managed, maintained, and interpreted.
Following on from the initial public consultation exercise, which was undertaken March to April 2021, the second phase is now open for members of the public to take part and help shape the approach for the plan, the closing date has been extended and now closes on Wednesday, 16 November 2022.
The first phase of the public consultation informed draft policies in the Conservation Management Plan and draft proposals for the Interpretation and Wayfinding Plan for the Curragh Plains. This phase of public consultation is focused on obtaining your views on those policies and proposals.
To have your say, interested parties are invited to share your views and opinions through an online survey that is available on www.curraghplains.ie/have-your-say .
Paper copies of the draft proposals and survey are available to view and complete in Kildare, Newbridge, and Kilcullen Libraries, and also available at Kildare County Council, Áras Chill Dara, Devoy Park, Naas, Co Kildare and the Whitewater shopping centre in Newbridge.
With a diverse range of people with different interests in the Curragh Plains, it is vital to have public participation in this process to help inform the outcome.
