Part 8 Planning Notice Under Section 179 of the Planning and Development Act, 2000 and Part 8 of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001 (As Amended)
Pursuant to the provisions of Part 8 of the Planning and Development Regulations 2001 (As Amended), Cork City Council hereby gives notice of its intention to carry out the following works;-
It is proposed to provide a new pedestrian and cycleway connecting the Grange Road to Tramore Valley Park Pedestrian and Cycle Link to Alden Grove.
The main elements of the proposed works are:
- The construction of approximately 35m of new 3m wide pedestrian and cycleway connecting the Grange Road to Tramore Valley Park Pedestrian and Cycle Link to Alden Grove with associated earthworks.
- The construction of approximately 23m of new 3m wide footway within Alden Grove.
- Traffic calming measures within Alden Grove.
- New Public Lighting and CCTV to the proposed connection.
- New road marking and signage.
- Other necessary associated works.
In accordance with the Habitats Directive, an Appropriate Assessment (AA) Screening has been carried out for the project, 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 concluded that no significant effects on any Natura 2000 sites is likely and it was not necessary to undertake any further stage of the Appropriate Assessment process.
In addition, the proposed project has been screened to determine whether an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is required and it has been concluded that the proposed development would not be likely to have significant effect on the environment and that the preparation and submission of an environmental impact report is not therefore required.
