There’s a balance between developing the centre of the county, while also revitalising rural communities.

That’s according to CEO of Kerry County Council Moira Murrell, who was speaking about the Draft Kerry County Development Plan 2022-2028. She says the plan covers many aspects of living in the county, including land use and population planning, energy supply and sustainable development.

Ms Murrell was asked what the local authority can do about infrastructure inadequacies, such as water and wastewater treatment capacities. These have been limiting factors in some proposed housing developments.

Ms Murrell says there are provisions to get around these difficulties.

Meanwhile, in relation to COVID-19, she says she’s very conscious of the potential effects of further restrictions.

Mr Murrell says, while noting the rates waiver for the first quarter of next year, more supports will be needed.
