18. Final Update on the North West Regional Enterprise Plan 2020.
Councillor Des Guckian expressed his disappointment with the North Western Regional Plan.
Councillor Finola Armstrong McGuire referred to the works on Carrick-on-Shannon Main Street. She expressed her disappointment in relation to how Main Street is currently left impassable because of the cessation of works due to current Level 5 COVID-19 restrictions. Councillor Armstrong McGuire asked if this can be changed to allow traffic to travel up Main Street.
All members of the Carrick on Shannon Municipal District supported this proposal and re-iterated that this is not fair on businesses and residents living on Main Street.
Mr Joseph Gilhooly advised that under Level 5 COVID-19 restrictions and instructions from the Department to the CCMA, public realm works not deemed essential and therefore had to cease. Mr Gilhooly shared the sentiments of the Elected Members to see the works complete. An element of work started last week and remains unfinished. Completion of that element is deemed as essential and will take a number of days to complete and once the work is complete Main Street will be opened up.
Mr Shay O’Connor, Senior Engineer outlined that a concrete slab was laid last week, and it will be 7-10 days before this is set and then the Main Street will be opened to traffic.
Councillor Armstrong McGuire paid tribute to the supreme and fantastic job carried out on the development of the new town centre car park and said that this will contribute greatly to the economy of Carrick-on-Shannon and it was warmly welcomed. Councillor Armstrong McGuire welcomed the report regarding the reopening of Main Street.
Councillor Enda Stenson concurred with Councillor Finola Armstrong McGuire’s remarks regarding the new car park.
