Sustainable Garden planned for Blackrock

Louth County Council has announced its intentions today, to construct a sustainable garden at Blackrock Park, Sandy Lane in Blackrock.

A sustainable garden works in harmony with nature and is grown using soil amendments such as compost or other organic matter and by using plants that work harmoniously together.

Natural rather than chemical methods are used to adjust the pH, soil composition, and provide nutrients.

The plan for the sustainable garden in Blackrock includes the provision of new lamp standards confined to a part of the park only, a street charging unit, an information panel and a power supply unit consisting of solar photo voltaic panels, a wind turbine and a battery. 

Plans and particulars of the proposed development may be inspected or purchased, at a fee not exceeding the reasonable cost of making a copy, from Wednesday November 7 to Wednesday December 5 2018, inclusive, during public opening hours at both the Millennium Centre and the Town Hall in Dundalk.

Louth County Council say that submissions or observations with respect to the proposed development, dealing with the proper planning and sustainable development of the area in which the development would be situated, clearly marked ‘Sustainable Garden and associated works at Blackrock Park, Sandy Lane, Blackrock, Co. Louth’ may be made in writing to Alan Sherry at County Hall, Millennium Centre, Dundalk, Co. Louth, before 5.00pm on Wednesday December 19 2018.
