Planning application for Inner Relief Rd in Ennistymon

Date issued: 21/12/17

Clare County Council has confirmed it will shortly lodge a Part 8 planning application for the development of an Inner Relief Rd in Ennistymon, County Clare, aimed at redressing longstanding traffic congestion at Blakes Corner.

The development of the proposed Ennistymon Inner Relief Rd includes a new crossing of the Inagh / Cullenagh River approximately 80 metres upstream of the existing crossing. The overall route runs from a point located approximately 170 metres southeast of Blakes Corner on the N85 Inagh to Ennistymon Road to a point located approximately 180 metres west of Blakes Corner on the N67 Ennistymon to Lahinch Road via Bogbere Street. The development also includes pedestrianisation of the existing bridge.

The Part 8 Planning Application is being lodged by Clare County Council following extensive consultation with Transport Infrastructure Ireland. Earlier this year, the Part 8 Planning process was confirmed by An Bord Pleanála as the appropriate planning route for the proposed infrastructure project.  

It is anticipated that a Planning Report on the forthcoming Part 8 planning process will be presented to the April Monthly Meeting of Clare County Council for consideration.
