Submission:
I would like to see 'retirement settlements' in many smaller towns such as Borrisokane. What I envisage is a development of mixed size smaller houses and apartments with central communal meeting and eating facilities- probably something similar to what already exists in Sue Ryder homes. I believe that older people living alone within a radius of approximately 12 to 15km of Borrisokane would embrace the idea of maintaining their independent living style in such a development with the added bonus of company, security and more modern living conditions. I think older people from Coolbawn, Kilbarron, Ballinderry, Terryglass, Carrigahorig, Lorrha, Rathcabbin, Carrig -Riverstown, Ballingarry, Aglish, Cloughjordan, Ardcroney might be disposed to considering such an alternative. Since this is focused towards the elderly active members of society I believe it would also add a whole new impetus to the development of the town of Borrisokane.

With increasing interest in fitness etc, Cahir town would benefit from a joint cycle/foot path using the old bypass similar to the existing feature in Clonmel. A new link road (1-1.5 km in length) from Munster Protein/Carrigeen Industrial Park to the R639 roundabout should be build to remove the increasing levels of HGVs from the Mitchelstown Road. Such traffic levels are incompatible with your vision of this area as a new center of gravity for town infrastructure. As a heritage town, consideration must be given to removing all HGV activity from the town center. A weight restriction on the road-bridge over the Suir would be the quickest and most efficient way to achieve this.

I am approaching this as a Parent,Chairperson of a Community Group and as a Tourism Business Proprietor. Settlement Strategy and growth of our Towns Urban Design, Place-making, Town and Village centres and Employment In my opinion Covid has shown us that people can work as efficient or more efficient in some cases by not going to their place of work and work remotely. However working from home has given its challenges particularly for people with young children or poor Broadband coverage. The other real challenge is the lack of social interaction with other people While working from their home. My suggestion that we create modern, well heated and Bright hubs with good Broadband coverage in villages and in particular in town centres. This will allow employees make the short journey to their nearest hub interact with other workers, work very efficiently and have flexibility in their work hours. It will also encourage them to spend in their local town or village ie the local shop, Restaurant or Bar. This will create Life in that area and a spin-off for all the businesses. It will also attract people who are looking to get out of the larger Cities as Covid has changed their opinions on Apartment city living. This will also help schools, sports clubs and general life in the Region. Also there should be a Rates/Tax Incentive for people to live over Hubs and other Businesses in the Town Centres would ensure there revival and reduce the Housing needs in the County. Tourism There has been great work done to date by Tipperary Tourism etc in conjunction with Tipperary County Council. This year in general has been good despite the early part of the year lockdown etc. The Reviews by the visitor’s to the region has been very positive. I would recommend that we develop more trails walks close to Lough Derg which is one of the greatest Tourism assets in the country. It would be great if we could look at working towards having a greenway type of offering from Killaloe to Portumna. This would be an excellent Tourism attraction and would be very good for the environment by encouraging walking and cycling for inhabitants and tourists alike. I would also recommend that there should be more of a joined up thinking between the Council Ie Tipperary/Clare and Galway ,Failte ireland and the likes of Waterways Ireland. The final point (is one which is close to my heart) .Overnight Parking of Camper Vans etc has been an issue at some of the harbours as its generally unsupervised. In my opinion conversations should be had with existing site owners to see if those people can be accommodated by incentives to improve their facilities and solve the issues that happen particularly during peak season and leaves a sour taste in people’s mouths. Safe cycleways and walks can ensure people have access to the harbours without all the hassle for all concerned. Thanks for the opportunity to make the above points and good luck with the plan.

I would like to recommend that the Fethard area develop a Bridleway/Shared road policy for Equestrian leisure riding between Fethard towards Killusty and out onto Slievenamon. This bridleway could take various routes, but would involve some redevelopment of the old Railway line area. It could also incorporate some rest/stop points which in turn could lead to the development of cafe type facilities with stalls for horses . Such a development would also accomodate walkers and mountain bikers. The stop or rest locations could be dual purpose by also highlighting local biodiversity or historial interests in the area.

I want to record my dissatisfaction with the procedure followed by the Planning Authority during the preparation of the current plan and respectfully request that the procedure be amended during preparation of this new plan. Brief background to above: Current plan zones lands at Moangarriff for housing ( as did previous plan). Previous plan specified access to above land to be from Gortnafleur road because Moangarriff road was deemed technically unsuitable. Current plan retained the housing zoning but omitted above statements about access. This constituted a material change. Local residents of Moangarriff area were not informed about proposed material change and therefor did not have an opportunity to make a submission to this proposal. Residents had made submissions to previous plan via two public meetings with local authority members and officials. A similar opportunity should have been afforded Moangarriff residents during preparation of current plan given proposed material change affecting their area. While the procedure may have been in accordance with the letter of the law, in my view it was not in accordance with the spirit of the law because the Planning Authority failed to ensure local residents were informed about a proposed material change to the previous plan and therefor failed to ensure local residents had an opportunity to make a submission.. Request: That the Planning authority( in addition to statutory publication of notices) proactively inform residents who will be impacted by a proposed material change to the Development Plan to ensure that residents have an opportunity to make a submission.

1, Hi lighting and maintaining our old stone wall around town 2. Develop with a ' bridge "from right of way at pound street to ball alley site ( all locals bounding this right of way seem happy to proceed with this idea) 3. Develop the Ball Alley site ?? Maybe a crazy golf course here , open alleys taking away front walls ,keeping walls to allow hitting of ball with racket..etc 4. Develop all footpaths about town, Can the dips with yellow paving for the blind and buggies be replaced with ordinary cement imprinted with roughness...as anywhere I see the yellow paving they cause trip hazards . 5. Consider a footbridge from car park to River Lane in the future plan. ( This being very important as there is no easy access to the left hand side of bridge from the square to main street without crossing to main footbridge and then having to cross back if needing to get to Ponaire or Treats,Vets etc) 6. Develop the river banks in general. Open an entrance at the car park back wall, jail street to river bank..A seat would be lovely here. 7. Possible development of second bridge from Rose Hill estate or above eg Stone Hall to Black road. And also from black road at back of Marian estate to back of Protestant Grave yard.. Easing traffic through main street. 8. School bus parking spaces left and marked in front of Mulcair Manor. 9.Cork road slowing traffic, develope Pedestrian crossing near GAA park. 10 Footpath to soccor pitch and to nursing home, Millbrae 11 Custom Gap ring road developed maintaining old country style ( remember it won a gold mile award a few years ago, competition held by Tipperary Co Co) 12. A Twin Wall ducting pipe placed at Custom Gap to take water down Hill, the drain fills with leaves and takes 2 men a days work to clean each year. Would save money in the long run. 13.Bicycle stand outside car park jail street and near church. For now it is all that comes to mind. Hope some of these points will be taken into consideration. Yours sincerely Elaine Carey

I would also like to see the Canon's Well pathway develop further along Cully river bank , it could be a lovely wooded walk and maybe circle back to the well or exit at back Clonbealy estate, or further along maybe? (This area would be council property, back of Clonbealy estate) I see a development of footpath at Custom Gap , I do hope old style will be maintained, possible cobble lock imprint if using concrete..? Or small chip embedded on hard core, to allow buggy to be pushed on..( its worse having a foot path and nobody using , if not able to push a buggy and ending up walking in the middle of the road) Thank you Elaine Carey

1. Reduced emission, greeways between villages and close proximity towns take for instances - Dromineer /Garrykennedy to Nenagh, Puckane to Nenagh, Ballycommon/Newtown to Nenagh, if we had green ways connecting our smaller villages to bigger towns, it would allow for safe travel on our roads low carbon emissions trips to sporting events and connecting with people for that coffee, increased economy in our towns,less traffic congestion. 2. Water - availability, harvesting of rain water in underground for social housing
