Written answers (Question to Transport)

The Glenbeigh to Renard South Kerry Greenway was originally awarded funding in 2014.  Construction of the Greenway has yet to commence.  In August 2018, Kerry County Council made an application to An Bord Pleanála for planning permission and we await their decision. I understand that further information in respect of the application was to be submitted to An Bord Pleanála by Kerry County Council by 8th April. As this is a live planning matter I do not think it appropriate to comment any further on the project.
