Panic is over for the moment Spiceloft.What
happened during the term of the last town council was that Frank Durcan commissioned a plan that proposed that a hotel complex could be built on the hills overlooking the lake.Whilst this was
not agreed by anyone there was a feeling that
housing could be built overlooking the lake.
A vigorous campaign was launched to oppose the
rezoning and eventually at the council meeting a
vote ensued to rezone
Against were Ml Kilcoyne Chairman,JMee,Sean Burke
and Pat King.
For FDurcan,EGaravan,Senator PBurke and Blackie
Gavin.Aidan crowley was absent.
On the casting vote of the chair Ml Kilcoyne the
proposal was thankfully defeated.
The reviewed proposal was then put on public
display and certain landowners wanted to again
have their land overlooking the lake rezoned
to enable resisential development take place.Only
2 councillors agreed at this stage at a meeting 2
weeks ago ,frank Durcan and Brendan Heneghan.For
the moment its safe but BE VIGILANT.
