Stage 1 – Pre-Draft Public Consultation
Draft Wicklow CDP 2016 - 2022
From 29th June until 13th July in order to facilitate construction of the new N11 dual carriageway between Arklow and Rathnew, all traffic will be diverted onto the Ballymoyle link road as per the attached map.
Motorists are advised to allow additional time for their journeys. They are also urged to take great caution on the approach to this diversion.
Applications are invited for the positions of Fieldworkers to carry out a complete house-to-house check in various areas throughout the County for the compilation of the Electoral Register. These positions are temporary, seasonal and will involve evening/weekend work.
This is the socio-economic framework for the Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP) for County Wicklow. This framework sets out the priority high level goals that will be addressed in the plan. They will be further defined into specific measurable objectives and practical time-bound actions.
As you will be aware, as part of a strategy to promote water conservation – on the public water supply network and within households – the Government has introduced a water conservation grant for households in 2015. Those who register with Irish Water – customers and non-customers – on or before 30 June 2015 will be eligible to apply for the annual €100 grant.

Following the Second World War, Town Twinning was extended in Europe as a means of promoting mutual understanding and cross-border projects.
Town twinning is supported by the European Union and since 1989 The Council of European Municipalities and Regions has worked closely with the European Commission to promote modern, high quality twinning initiatives and exchanges that involve all sections of the community.
The European Union had fostered more than 7,000 bilateral relationships involving almost 10,000 European municipalities and in most cases geographical distance has very little influence upon communities' selections of a twin town. In fact Town twinning has increasingly been used to form strategic international business links.
