A builder has applied for planning permission to build 89 houses on Bellvue Hill in Delgany. This is quite a dense development but there is no footpath from it to the village. ‘I have objected to this as it must be linked to the village by a footpath and also because this land has flooded a lot’.
A major problem is that the Delgany to Blacklion Road has not been built even though it has been planned for 27 years. There are 4 schools on this road and the middle section is dangerous because it is so narrow. The Council has not budgeted the cost of building the new wider road with proper footpaths yet and I don’t think there should be any more intensive development in the area until it is built.
