Local MD To Engage With Stakeholders On Tipp Hill Project


Tipperary Cahir Cashel MD will engage with local stakeholders in respect of the Tipperary Hills project in Tipperary Town.

A plan developed in 2009 will be the basis for engagement over the coming weeks.

The project has secured €625,000 (Town and Village Renewal and Council contribution) in funding and is expected to be completed this year if no planning issues arise.

Once the final work is decided it can commence without a planning process if no material changes to the area are proposed.

The project includes the Hills area on the Limerick side of town, a portion currently leased to the Pitch n Putt Club and the St John’s Famine Graveyard.

Wider paths and routes that would enable a greater access for those using wheelchairs or buggy’s  are also to be considered.

The “Flat Hollow” area may be levelled and made more user friendly and additional planting and seating is to be included.

Anthony Coleman the District Administrator says work on the Handball alley might be outside the scope of the project but that work on an improved layout for the carpark would be included.

Remaining tight-lipped about a future royal visit to Tipperary  Mr Coleman says he can confirm that two “VIPs” will be in the Cahir and Cashel area on March 25th with more details available closer to the date.
