KCC intend to transfer Naas Library to Naas Town Hall. Plans for the new library can be viewed on the KCC website and in Naas Library. There is a Part 8 public consultation on this plan and submissions must be sent to KCC by 18th December.

Naas Community College: 16 contractors have sent an Expression of Interest for the construction of the new school at Millennium Park. KWETB, however, have written to the school stating that “due to planning and other difficulties” the new school will not be completed until early 2021.
