Public and Stakeholder Engagement

In accordance with the Arterial Drainage Acts 1945 and 1995 as amended, the Office of Public Works will engage with the public on the proposed Ballinasloe Flood Relief Scheme.

In order to involve stakeholder’s opinion on the project, two public consultation days will be held. The purpose of the first public information day will be to seek initial views from the public and other interested parties in relation to the key issues that the study should address, and to highlight points of local importance to inform the design of potential flood alleviation measures. The purpose of the second public information day will be to gather views of the public about the developed scheme options. A third public information day will provide information about the Emerging Preferred Option, in advance of the formal exhibition stage.
