PUBLIC NOTICE   

NOTICE UNDER SECTION 179 OF THE PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT ACT 2000 AS AMENDED &

PART 8 OF THE PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT REGULATIONS 2001 AS AMENDED

Pursuant to the requirements of Part 8 of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001 as amended, Notice is hereby given that Cork City Council proposes to carry out road safety improvement works (“the proposed development”) on the L1005 Ballinlough Road at its junctions with the L1053 Belair Estate and the L1108 Wallace’s Avenue, Ballinlough, Cork.

The proposed development will consist of the following:

  • Re-construction of the Belair Estate and Wallace’s Avenue junctions as “table junctions”, incorporating a raised carriageway surface and a coloured pavement surfacing.
  • Provision of a Zebra Crossing across Belair Estate at its junction with Ballinlough Road, together with all associated signal poles, Belisha beacons and electrical control equipment.
  • Re-construction of uncontrolled pedestrian crossings at the junction of Ballinlough Road with Wallace’s Avenue
  • Reconstruction and improvement of footpaths in the vicinity of both junctions,
  • Modification and improvement to public lighting, road markings and road signage, and,
  • All associated ancillary site works.

In accordance with the Habitats Directive, an Appropriate Assessment (AA) Screening has been undertaken for proposed development, in relation to any potential impacts upon the Cork Harbour Special Protection Area [Site No. 004030] and the Great Island Channel Special Area of Conservation [Site No. 001058]. The findings of the AA screening noted that no significant effects on any Natura 2000 sites are likely. It was not necessary to undertake any further stage of the Appropriate Assessment process.

In addition, the proposed development has been screened to determine whether an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is required. It has been concluded that there will be no real likelihood of significant effects on the environment arising from the proposed development and that an EIA is not required.

In accordance with Article 120 (3), as amended by S.I. No. 296 of 2018, a person may, within 4 weeks beginning on the 3rd of August 2022 apply to An Bord Pleanála for a screening determination as to whether the development would be likely to have significant effects on the environment. Such a submission should be addressed to the Secretary, An Bord Pleanála, 64, Marlborough Street, Dublin 1.
