Funding allocated to cover just 28 of 237 local road improvement applications in Galway

Published

on

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Funding has been allocated for just 28 out of 237 local road improvement applications in county Galway.

That’s according to Galway East TD Sean Canney who says the Government must urgently increase LIS funding to deal with the scale of applications in the county.

It comes as the County Council has received 237 valid applications at a total estimated cost of €10.8 million.

However this year the Local Authority was only able to allocate roughly €900,000 which equates to approximately 28 minor road improvement schemes.

LIS provides funding for improvement works on small roads and laneways in rural areas which are not maintained by Local Authorities and provide access to people’s homes and farms or to amenities such as lakes, rivers or beaches.

Deputy Canney argues the funding for county Galway represents less than 10% of the amount needed.

He says the Government must intervene and address the shortfall.

Online survey launched on future development of Oranmore area

Published

on

Galway Bay fm newsroom – An online survey has been launched to find out what improvements the public in Oranmore want to see in the village and the surrounding areas.

The document has been commissioned by the MÓR Action group which is looking for people of all ages to have their say on the future development of community spaces.

The local group says once all the responses are gathered they’ll be presented to the County Council and elected representatives.

MÓR Action has confirmed that the survey was developed because the County Council said it was finding it difficult to engage with the community due to the diverse range of groups and interests in Oranmore.

It comes as Oranmore was recently awarded €100,000 in Council funding for public realm enhancements in the village.

A link for the survey is available on MÓR Action’s social media accounts and it will remain open until July 16.

The group’s spokesperson Caroline Rowan says the survey gives locals the chance to have their say on how the public realm funding can be best used in the community.
