Sinn Féin Councillor Conor D. McGuinness has welcomed the publication of the Council’s multi-year capital plan this month. The plan will see a total investment of €230 million across Waterford City and County to the end of 2024.
“Its important for us to take a strategic approach to capital investment and planning these important allocations over the medium to long-term period helps us make better decisions.
“I am particularly happy to see significant funds allocated to phase 1 and 2 of the Cappoquin regeneration project, and to the Ardmore coastal erosion project. Its important that our capital spend is not solely focused on the bigger urban areas, but that all of Waterford sees the benefit of this investment.
“Its great to see the allocation of funding towards the long-awaited skate park for Dungarvan. this is an important piece of infrastructure that will cater to a demographic that is rarely considered in terms of planning or design of public spaces.
“Its also worth noting the dedicated fund for footpath repairs. A total of €3.2 million will be made available to repair and replace damaged and dangerous footpaths. This is something I have been campaigning for and I am looking forward to helping develop the work plan for January.
