Kilcullen notes from Kildare Newbridge MD meeting

The legal process in relation to a land transfer between the Cross and Passion trustees and Kildare County Council, to facilitate the construction of a bus shelter in Kilcullen, is now in train, writes Brian Byrne. In a response to a question from Cllr Fiona McLoughlin Healy at today's meeting of Kildare Newbridge MD, officials said the matter is currently with the Council's legal advisors.

At the same meeting, a motion from Cllr Tracey O'Dwyer on whether there might be a Rates Relief Scheme for businesses willing to occupy vacant buildings in Kilcullen and Newbridge, brought the reply that it might be more appropriate to look at such a scheme on a county-wide basis. The Council's Finance Department will bring the options available to the September meeting of the Finance Committee, and any potential option will be brought in draft form to Council as part of the budget process.

A motion by Cllr Robert Power asking that the Council support development of the Old Kilcullen Heritage Trail was answered to the effect that the Council does support such development, but the Planning Department does not get involved in the establishment of public rights of way.
