A progress report on the feasibility study into the development of the River Moy Estuary area, commissioned by Ballina Lions Club, will take place on Monday, September 23, writes Orla Hearns.
The report will be presented by consultant Enda Candon of First Western, who is compiling the feasibility study.
Funded under the National Rural Development Programme (Leader), which is administered by IRD North Mayo West Sligo Ltd (Moy Valley Resources), the study will seek to harness and utilise on the huge potential of the highly scenic Moy Estuary area that is now a discovery point on Ireland’s hugely-successful Wild Atlantic Way.
Public consultations were held in Killala, Enniscrone, and Ballina earlier this summer, where locals were invited to make submissions in relation to the feasibility study.
Written submissions were also facilitated.
The September 23 progress report will give an overview of emerging trends from the public consultation findings.
Proposed developments emerging from this process will only be undertaken if they facilitate the sustainable development of the Moy Estuary for the benefit of the local community.
The progress report will be presented in the Kennedy Glasgow Building at The Quay Village in Ballina at 7pm on September 23.
