- Public Realm Enhancement
In tandem with the bypass project, Meath County Council Planning Department have also commissioned the preparation of a Public Realm Plan for Slane. Certain elements of this plan could be implemented once the proposed N2 bypass is in place. The Draft Slane Public Realm Plan and accompanying natura impact assessment were open to public consultation from the 19th of January 2022 to the 18th of February 2022. Submissions from the public are currently being assessed.
The decision has been made by Meath County Council to include the design of the public realm improvements in the village as part of the N2 Slane Bypass Scheme to be brought forward for submission to An Bord Pleanála for planning permission. The proposed scheme is now titled the “N2 Slane Bypass and Public Realm Enhancement Scheme”. The proposals included in this scheme will take cognisance of the final Slane Public Realm Plan once it is published by Meath County Council Planning Department.
