8th July 2020: Wexford County Council has today announced that it has extended its public consultation process in relation to the constraints and route options phase for the N11/N25 Oilgate to Rosslare Harbour Scheme by an additional two weeks. This brings the deadline for feedback to Monday 3rd August 2020.
The public consultation process began on Monday 6th July and offers an opportunity for members of the public to voice their opinions and to contribute to the overall development of the project.
Wexford County Council’s Director of Service Eamonn Hore, said, “Since the public consultation process opened we have received a large volume of responses from local residents and the general public. This is very welcome as it shows a very high level of interest by the public in the scheme, and we value each and every submission made to us. To better facilitate this ongoing dialogue, Wexford County Council has extended the current public consultation by a further two weeks to Monday 3rd August.
“We are excited to be progressing this important project, which will deliver significant benefits to the people of Wexford and make our roads safer and more efficient. Notwithstanding the ongoing restrictions in place due to Covid-19 which restricts face to face public information meetings, Wexford County Council is committed to engaging in a comprehensive, informative and constructive public consultation process to provide the public with all of the information that is available at this early stage of the option selection process and we have made all the relevant maps, documents and other materials fully available on the website www.oilgate2rosslareharbour.ie.
We encourage everyone to review these carefully and to please submit any thoughts, comments, or opinions they might have, either online, by email, over the phone, or by post.”
The timeline for engaging directly with the project team as part of the current public consultation has also been extended until 5.00pm on Friday 10th July. During this time, senior members of the project team will be available to respond personally to all queries as soon as possible, and to provide further information that may be requested. Queries can be submitted via the project customer services phone line on 053 9196000 or by email at email@example.com, and arrangement will be made for a senior member of the project team to get in touch. General project queries can continue to be directed to the project at any time via phone, email, post, or the website. As outlined on the project website further public displays and consultations will take place as the scheme progresses.
