Donegal County Council, in conjunction with the Office of Public Works, have launched a new project website for the Burnfoot, Castlefinn, Na Dúnaibh and Glenties Flood Relief Schemes.
Members of the public can keep up to date with news and progress by visiting www.countydonegalfrs.ie and clicking on the relevant link for each scheme.
The opening consultation period for Burnfoot, Castlefinn, Na Dúnaibh and Glenties Flood Relief Schemes is also being launched today and will remain open until 21st December 2020.
The overall project objective is to develop a flood relief scheme for each community that is economically viable and technically, socially and environmentally acceptable. The purpose of the opening consultation period is to explain the scheme development process and gather valuable local knowledge, which will be essential in meeting the project objectives. It is an opportunity for stakeholders and members of the public to voice any concerns they may have and to inform how the design is progressed.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and restrictions, these public consultations are being held via an online consultation portal which can be accessed via the project website or by clicking:
The first newsletter, information brochure and a questionnaire will be sent to stakeholders and residents in each of the four communities so that submissions to the project team can be made via post, email or telephone using the contact details provided if preferred. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries.
