Second masterplan meeting to develop green spaces in largest Laois estate

The second community engagement meeting with residents in the largest Laois estate will take place on Thursday evening.

The meeting will be held to discuss the possible future plan to develop the green open spaces at Kilminchy housing estate. 

The meeting aims to develop a shared master plan for the estate’s 13 acres of public spaces, outside of properties and gardens.

People who want to share their opinion on what should be done with the space can go along and have their say. The meeting will be held on Thursday, December 6 at 7.30pm in The Killeshin Hotel, Portlaoise.

The planning and design stage has received €9,000 funding so far.

When the plan is designed, more LEADER funding will be sought to carry out the work. After these views have been taken on board, the plan will then be brought to the design stage.

A drone survey has been carried out to determine the space which encompasses lakes and green areas.
