DO YOUR LOCAL RIVERS, LAKES & COASTAL AREAS MATTER TO YOU?
Are you are interested in water quality, biodiversity, heritage, water based recreation and tourism? Are there issues affecting your local water body, be it a stream, river or lake? The first in a series of public meetings in Tipperary will be held on Thursday (1st June) to discuss water bodies in Tipperary and specifically the Nenagh & North Tipperary area in the context of the draft River Basin Management Plan. This is an opportunity for you to have your say.
Venue: Abbey County Hotel, Nenagh, Thursday 1st June at 7.30 pm
All Welcome – Tea / Coffee provided
The public meeting will outline what is included in the draft River Basin Management Plan (2018-2021) along with details on how you can input into the final plan. The Waters & Communities Office aims to get local communities more involved in protecting and enhancing local water bodies. The public meeting will provide an opportunity for you to influence policy and local programme measures and projects.
Ruairí Ó Conchúir, Community Waters Officer for North Tipperary, will present information on the draft Plan and facilitate a discussion on different issues and interests emerging including funding opportunities for local community projects. The meetings will be an important opportunity to network. Contact Ruairí Ó Conchúir on 085 808 3715 / 061 496310 or email@example.com for more information.
