‘Absolute need’ for sewerage extension for Carrick-on-Shannon

Funding for Carrick-on-Shannon has been submitted by Leitrim County Council

Funding for a group sewerage scheme in the Ballynamoney area of Carrick-on-Shannon has been submitted by Leitrim County Council.
The matter was raised at the latest meeting of Carrick-on-Shannon Municipal District by Cllr Des Guckian who said there is an “absolute need” for the extension of the public sewerage line in that townland.
He said there are many closely packed houses and building sites at that location along the R280 but the sites cannot get planning permissions if they are not on the public sewerage line.
“Ballynamoney must be one of the few residential communities in Ireland, on the edge of a town, which is being denied this very necessary facility,” he said.
The Council reply stated it had previously applied for funding for a scheme in that location in 2016 but were not successful.
However, a new programme will be established in 2019 and they will include it in their submission.
