Rebalance of pedestrian and vehicle access aim of new coastal plans

Readdressing the balance between pedestrians and vehicles is among the aims of new plans that are being prepared for the Sligo coastal villages of Strandhill and Rosses Point.

The time limit for the public to make their opinions and ideas about the new plans has been extended to this Friday, October 29th.

An initial round of consultation through an online survey took place last August.

A particular area is being focussed on in each village.

In Strandhill it’s the area from the main council car park down Shore Road and the promenade.

In Rosses Point, it’s the old village road, or ‘inside road’, and on the road along the promenade.

Leonora McConville, executive planner with Sligo County Council, has been telling Ocean FM News about what’s it’s hoped can be achieved through the plans.
