Advertising signage 'a Tidy Towns issue'

Informal advertising signage is an issue on Kilcullen's Main Street, according to a report by environmental consultants made from a walkabout at the end of October, writes Brian Byrne.

The visit was commissioned by Kildare County Council as part of the authority's Tidy Towns Support Project. It was carried out by Billy Flynn of Flynn, Furney Environmental Consultants, under the coordination of KCC's Dave Wyer.

Among the recommendations of the resulting broad-based report, the Kilcullen Tidy Towns group is advised to contact those who use informal advertising and tell them it won't be tolerated, and will be immediately taken down.

The report noted the 'enviable location' of Kilcullen, the several 'very distinctive' business premises in the town, and some replanting which is required in various locations.

It also provided a commentary on the town's recent results, reiterating some of the noteworthy recommendations made over the last three years.

Another public meeting on Kilcullen's Tidy Towns effort will be held on Monday 29 February in the Town Hall, beginning at 8pm. All are welcome.
