St Mullins in Carlow
An Bord Pleanala have confirmed that they will not be granting an oral hearing to Waterway's Ireland appeal against the decision of Carlow County Council to refuse planning permission for the controversial Blueway.
Director of Services at the local authority, Eamonn Brophy, updated members at the July meeting and said ABP would decide on the Blueway application without an oral hearing and the revised date for a decision was now September 22.
At the end of February all three county councils involved, published their decisions on the planning application by Waterways Ireland.
Carlow rejected them, while Laois and Kildare gave the go-ahead.
The planned upgrade is to provide a multi-use shared leisure route connecting Lowtown in County Kildare to St. Mullins in County Carlow, a distance of 115km of off-road, flat, accessible, public space.
