Substantial works needs to be completed before diving boards will be reinstated in Fenit.
A campaign was launched last December by the Restore Fenit Diving Boards Campaign Committee.
Director of Services with Kerry County Council, Michael Scannell says a detailed technical solution is needed before the council and Irish Water Safety can sign off on it.
He says it must be a proposal that will result in a safe leisure activity the council and the public will have confidence in.
Mr Scannell says it’s a community initiative and a lot will depend on how quickly the community can access the necessary funds through grant schemes.
