PROVISIONAL public realm works for Kill village have been welcomed by a local councillor who said the village has been “neglected” for years.
At the June Comeragh District meeting of Waterford City & County Council, Cllr Declan Clune (SF) said there was very positive feedback in the village to details of the proposed public realm works.
The plans include traffic calming measures at the school and the crossroads in the centre of the village; the identification of a site for a proposed bus shelter; footpath repair; and increased parking by the school.
Cllr Clune thanked all those involved with developing the proposed public realm works.
“Kill village has clearly been neglected over the last few years. The feedback is now very positive,” he said.
“These works won’t happen overnight but the fact that a plan is in place is very welcome,” he added.
Senior Executive Engineer Eamon Lonergan said Waterford City & County Council was working with community groups across the county, including a group in Kill.
“We asked them to bring their ideas to us to see where we can get involved. We’re looking at a five year to ten year plan,” he said.
However, he said some suggestions were “beyond the council” at the moment.
