Letter to Kill Residents February 2019
Issued : Sunday 10 February, 2019
KILL LOCAL NEWS
I have listed some planning issues below that you may find interesting.
Proposal for 136 Houses at Kill Hill (adjoining Earl’s Court)
McCourt Investments have lodged a second planning application with An Bord Pleanála for 136 houses on this site. Along with Emmet Stagg and Cllr. Anne Breen I made a submission in relation to this application. A decision on the application is due on April 23rd.
Former Ambassador Hotel Site
Under KCC’s Capital Programme of works a feasibility study is being carried out on the provision of 35 housing units on this site. KCC expect to submit to the Dept. of Housing for Stage 1 approval before the end of March 2019.
KCC have invited Expressions of Interest for the remediation of Kerdiffstown Landfill. The work will involve capping wastes across the site and ultimately will provide a multi-use public park. The Public Park will include multi-use sports pitches, car parking, changing rooms, a children's playground and a network of paths. The duration of the contract will be 6 years.
I understand from some Kill residents active on this issue that it is not yet agreed fully with KCC. Residents in Kill have my full support in creating a safer environment for pedestrians particularly school children.
Naas Community College
The new Minister for Education and Skills has indicated that Tenders for the Construction of the school will finally be invited before the end of March this year.
Permission has been granted to Marchford Ltd for an extension to Lawlor’s Hotel, Naas.
The derelict Naas Shopping Centre will be put up for sale in the coming months.
