The EUR1.26m Doora Landfill Remediation Contract will remediate the closed landfill, in accordance with the conditions of the Environmental Protection Agency licence.

The project also involves the provision of a new entrance and parking area, two playing pitches, scenic nature walks and extensive landscaping works. Additional works include the capping of the old landfill site as well as the provision of necessary infrastructure works to facilitate the ongoing monitoring of the site.

The plans for the remediation project were drawn up by Tobin Consulting Engineers, in conjunction with Clare County Council Environment staff.

Speaking at the contract signing, Sean Ward (Acting Director of Service), Environment Directorate, Clare County Council said, ‘This contract is a significant and positive step forward in both the remediation of the old landfill site and the provision of amenities to the local Doora , Gaurus and Ballaghboy area.’

He added that the proposed works were further evidence of Clare County Council’s ongoing commitment to dealing with historic environmental issues.

‘The inclusion of recreational amenities and nature walks in the project will add excellent value to the overall scheme’, stated Mr. Ward.

Cllr Patricia McCarthy, Chairperson of the Strategic Policy Committee on the Environment, Emergency Services and Consumer Affairs, commented, ‘I welcome the continuing redevelopment of the site and look forward to its transition and eventual transformation into an active recreational area for the people of County Clare to enjoy.’

The contract will commence shortly and is expected to be complete in 12 months.
