Public and Stakeholder Engagement

To facilitate the development of the scheme, Kerry County Council (KCC) are seeking public opinion and local knowledge of flooding within and around the Tralee area. Several Public Consultation Events and Stakeholder Workshops are to be held over the duration of the project. 

The Opening Public Consultation event was held on the 26th of November 2021 until the 23rd of December 2021. The purpose of the event was to to identify key issues and highlight points of local importance which will help inform the design of potential flood alleviation measures.

Collaborative Workshops will be undertaken with representatives from a number of stakeholder bodies. The purpose of these Workshops will be to establish goals and objectives from each relevant section within Kerry County Council responsible for key issues such as planning, enhancement of public realm, heritage, recreation, biodiversity, etc. This collaborative approach to public sector works will inform design features and bring added value to the project resulting in a more locally valuable and acceptable scheme.

Later in Stage 1 a second public consultation event will be held to gather views on the developed Scheme options, the date for this event will be scheduled in due course. The comments and queries raised at the public consultation date will be considered in the finalisation of the Scheme design and the preparation of the EIAR (Environmental Impact Assessment Report).
