Environmental Protection Agency happy with Tralee Town Council

Tralee Town Council is in the clear over infill work in The Town Park late last year. The Environmental Protection Agency says it`s happy with the approach taken by The Town Council. The agency began an investigation last month on foot of a complaint about the work. Tralee Town Council admitted that builders’ rubble was used when infill work was carried out last autumn to curb flooding. The Council had been asked for a report by the EPA after a complaint was made about what was used for the infill.Last month, the agency said it would decide if a licence should have been secured before the work was done. Now the e EPA says the matter is closed and it has no further investigating to do. Meanwhile, the first steps towards a charter have been taken with an invitation for submissions from the public. The Save the Green Campaign pushed for the charter last summer after a row over the use of the park for amusements during The Rose of Tralee.
