Island of Geese masterplan.

THE timeframe for public consultation on proposals for the development of part of the Island of Geese (Denny) site in Tralee has been extended following a decision on such consultations from the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government.

The Department has advised that, because of current public health restrictions, the period from March 29 to April 20 inclusive is disregarded in relation to the current public consultations.

Therefore, the period for receipt of submissions on both Part VIII consultations on the Island of Geese site has been extended to April 27.

The proposals, which were published in February, represent the first significant on-site developments at the Island of Geese which was recently the subject of a design masterplan.

One of the proposals includes the development of a three-storey development with a retail/restaurant/café unit on the ground floor. The other proposal is for a public realm space covering approximately one-third of the site, and includes:

• A linear park with an appropriate balance of hard and soft landscaping.
• Retention of the original brick chimney stack and extending its heights from 15m to 32m resembling its estimated original height.
• The public realm, which includes paving, curved seating and a shallow amphitheatre, the installation of permanent umbrellas, seating, public lighting, electrical and water connection points, bicycles stands and a play area for children.  For more click on https://www.kerrycoco.ie/part-8-notices-island-of-geese/
