Call for more focused plan on future development of Claregalway

There’s a call for a more focused plan on the future development of Claregalway.

At a meeting at County Hall this week, Councillor David Collins said consideration should be given to an ambulance base and fire station in the village.

He said despite being a very rapidly growing area, it previously had failed to meet the criteria for a specific town plan.

Council management gave a commitment that they would look at a specific plan for Claregalway at some point in the future.

Councillor Collins says the demand is there – as shown by the population increase in recent years
