Every five years the council publishes a Local Area Plan (LAP) for towns and villages which sets out a roadmap for how they will be developed over the coming years. In particular these LAPs set out where future building development can take place, the density of such development, and the type of development, e.g. residential, commercial, amenity/green space etc. At this point in time, the draft of the Sallins LAP 2015-2021 is now on public display until 11th August 2015. While on public display, the public are offered the opportunity to make submissions regarding the LAP. This is an important occasion in the lifetime of every town. I would always encourage that people get involved in this process and make their opinions about the future development of Sallins heard.
I held a number of dedicated clinics at Grange Café, Sallins recently to talk to constituents about the upcoming draft LAP. I showed people the contents of the new plans and how to go about making submissions. Should you wish to make a submission, you can do so by addressing it to Forward Planning, Kildare County Council, Áras Chill Dara, Naas, Co. Kildare. Community groups, sports clubs and residents associations are also open to making submissions. You have until 11th August 2015 to do so. Should you need any assistance or have any questions regarding the draft Sallins LAP, please get in touch with me.
