A progress report on the feasibility study into the development of the River Moy Estuary area, commissioned by Ballina Lions Club, will take place this evening Monday, October 7, 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 monopolise on the huge potential of the highly scenic Moy Estuary area that now features as 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.
Tonight’s progress report will give an overview of emerging trends from the public consultation findings and the Western People understands that some very exciting proposals have been put forward for consideration.
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 tonight at 7pm and all are welcome to attend.
