The site, which was donated to the people of Tralee by Kerry Group in 2014, closed in 2008.
Kerry County Council today announced the first phase of public consultation on the future use of the Denny Bacon Factory site.
The opening of consultation on the future of the ‘The Island of Geese’ – the historic name of that part of Tralee – coincides with the launch of a new website, www.theislandtralee.ie
The site will allow people to log on and submit ideas for the development of the 2.3-acre site.
Survey forms are also being made available at up to 20 locations around Tralee, including County Buildings, Tralee Library and the Tourist Kiosk in the Mall.
Mayor of Kerry, Michael O’Shea, says it is the start of great things for the site.
Meanwhile, Mayor of Tralee, Terry O’Brien is encouraging everyone to get involved in the consultation process.
