Possible Removal Of Part Of Garda Station Boundary Wall At Island Of Geese

Posted by


THE Council is in talks with with An Garda Síochána about removing part of the boundary wall at the Garda station, facing the Island Of Geese site, to create a plaza type effect at the development.

Tralee Municipal District Manager Michael Scannell gave an update on the former Denny site development to members of Tralee MD at an online meeting on Monday.

On the Courthouse issue, he said the local authority was still in talks with the Office of Public Works and the Courts Services. Any possible development of a new Courthouse would take up no more than 25% of the former Denny site.

Mayor of Tralee, Terry O’Brien, was keen to stress that no decision has been made on locating a Courthouse at the Island of Geese site.

Mr Scannell said construction on the public realm aspect of the site could not progress until Level 5 restrictions were lifted.

He also said there are plans for social housing units at the Matt Talbot Road end of the site and there is an application for funding submitted through the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund for a community facility to be built on site. A decision on this funding is due in April.
