Cork County Council, in partnership with Fáilte Ireland, is currently planning the development of the Dursey Island Cable Car and Visitor Centre valued at approximately €7 million.
Following on from the very successful community information evening held in Glengarriff in late March, Cork County Council propose to hold a further information evening to engage with the community and all stakeholders in regards to the development of the Cable Car and Visitor Centre.
This information event, happening in the Lehanmore Community Centre, Garnish, aims to update the local community and industry stakeholders on the status of the project and to seek comments and observations. It will afford the local community and industry stakeholders an additional opportunity to comment on the current preliminary design which will be on display on the evening.
Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr Patrick Gerard Murphy is encouraging everybody with an interest to attend this meeting, “It is vital to the success of this project to get input from the community and the feedback from these events will go into the overall design to help shape the Dursey Island cable car and visitor centre’s development into an iconic tourist experience that brings with it great benefits to the Beara region”
The third of three community information meetings on the development, this upcoming meeting, in Lehanmore Community Centre, will close the current series of formal information events. It is intended that a new series will commence post planning consent in late 2019 or early 2020.
The community information evening is to be held on Tuesday 23rd April 2019 between 6.00 & 8.00pm in the Lehanmore Community Centre, Garnish, Beara peninsula.
