Irish Water have recently closed the third round of non-statutory public consultation and would like to thank all those who participated in the process.

During the five week public consultation, Irish Water sought feedback on the following:

  • This new plant will change how the area looks. We are currently finalising the design of the plant
  • We are currently developing the Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIAR) and have published the EIA Scoping Report

Drop-in information events

Two drop-in information events were held as part of a period of public consultation. These events provided an opportunity to engage with the project team and inform the proposals ahead of the commencement of the planning process.
