Mr. John Bradley, Acting Senior Planner with Clare County Council, explained that the new Plan would be a blueprint for development for the Ennis & Environs area over the next six years.

"Ennis has been designated as a Hub town in terms of the government’s National Spatial Strategy and its growth over the past 7 years has far outstripped all other Hubs in Ireland. The Plan will also contain detailed proposals designed to improve the environment of Ennis town centre and new policies relating to land on the east side of the town prone to flooding", added Mr. Bradley.

Public consultation events will be held in Ennis and Clarecastle in early September when members of staff will be on hand to answer questions Details of these will be announced nearer the time.

Submissions to the draft Plan should be in writing and the closing date for submissions is 3 October 2008.

The draft Plan can be inspected at Ennis library and Local Studies Centre and at the Town Council and County Council offices where it is also available for purchase.
