Environmental Community Projects
For Ballymore Eustace

In June 2004, planning permission was granted to KTK Sand & Gravel Limited for the restoration of its sand and gravel pits as Naas Road, Ballymore Eustace. It was condition of the planning permission that KTK should contribute 7 cent per ton of material accepted at the pit to facilitate community environmental projects.

The Planning permission also provided that the identification of these projects should be decided on by a community liaison based on equal representation of personnel from the county council, KTK, local residents and elected members of Kildare County Council.

The membership of the committee for 2009 which was established by the County Council, consists of the following:

Councillors Willie Callaghan and JJ Power; Mike Edmonds and Rose Barrett-0’Donoghue on behalf of the local community; Kevin Keenan and Mervyn Ross representing the developer; and Ann Rowan and Simon Wallace County Council Personnel.

Grants have been awarded for a number of schemes in the Ballymore Eustace area.

The committee would now welcome new applications for projects for the current year. The closing date for receipt of applications is Friday 24th April 5.00pm. All applications should be addressed to Ms. Ann Rowan, Senior Executive Officer, Planning Department Kildare County Council.

Please see application form on opposite page-take note. Projects may require co-funding, i.e. some contribution from the proposer. However, this requirement will not apply to projects with value below €400.

All new or revised applications received will be considered at the meeting of the committee in May, 2009.
