A public consultation for the future management and preservation of the Curragh Plains is continuing.
Minister for Defence, Simon Coveney, is seeking views on the best way to preserve and manage the lands, which span around 5,000 acres.
Kildare County Council and the Department have jointly procured the services of a multi-disciplinary team, led by Paul Hogarth consultants.
The firm will develop a Conservation Management Plan and Interpretation/Branding Strategy for the Plains.
Minister Coveney says “the successful delivery of a future Conservation and Management Plan for the Plains will be largely dependent on active participation by those stakeholders with an interest in the Curragh Plains.”
The consultation process, which opens on Monday, will be available here
