Compulsory Purchase Order for Listowel Bypass is published

The Compulsory Purchase Order for the N69 Listowel Bypass has been published.

Kerry County Council has submitted the order to An Bord Pleanala, seeking approval to take over land for the €40 million project.

The Listowel Bypass will comprise a 5.95km western and northern bypass of Listowel town, linking the N69 Tralee Limerick road north and south of the town centre, and the R553 Ballybunion Road.

The €40 million project will run through 60 landholdings, affecting 90 landowners and occupiers.

Kerry County Council has applied to An Bord Pleanala for approval to make Compulsory Purchase Orders for the land needed and also to extinguish 12 rights-of-way.

The notice for the CPO has been published this week and the council has served landowners with the statutory notices.

An Environmental Impact Statement has also been prepared and is available to view at the council’s offices along with the CPO.

Objections can be made to An Bord Pleanala by the 7th of July.
