On 8 August 2012 Waterways Ireland applied to Kildare County Council for planning permission for a development at Sallins:

The construction of a new 210m fixed timber house boat mooring facility for 12 boats with electric and water service supply bollards, 45m of a fixed timber short term mooring facility, car parking bays for 12 cars, access pathway suitable for disabled access, and a sewage pumpout for boats.

The application is at pre-validation stage. Submissions are to be made by 11 September and the “due date” is 2 October 2012. The file number is 12645. I can find no additional documents or details.

IRBOA doesn’t seem to have the news on its site yet, but it is interesting to compare the current proposal with what was discussed at the IRBOA meeting in Sallins on 8 March [2011, I think].

  1. Hi Brian,

    I have been in touch with a rep from IRBOA who were already aware of this planning application and have been liaising with WI on the detail. Hopefully this will result in a well thought out and fair development for Sallins for both resident and visiting boaters. IRBOA will update their website in due course.


  2. Glad to hear it; thanks for the update, Alan. bjg
