My second adjourned motion at today’s (18th Oct) MD meeting; ‘That the council work together with interested community groups including local Grow It Yourself (GIY) groups to help identify locations around the district for the development of a community garden scheme.
Report: Kildare County Council has no objection in principle to the development of community gardens. More information is required in relation to the location of the interest groups and their expectations as our experience to date has been that there is different aspirations as to the size, function and design of the gardens. There is limited land available in the municipal area for recreational activities such as this. Much of what is available has been highlighted to the municipal district members already. Any additional work related to this request could only be considered once the existing Parks Section works programme has been completed.
