Works planned at Stephenstown Pond
A planning application has been lodged with Louth County Council, seeking permission for works at Stephenstown Pond in Knockbridge, Co Louth.
Stephenstown Pond Trust Limited are seeking permission for alterations to the existing entrance, consisting of widening the existing entrance and all associated site works, at the local nature park.
The site of Stephenstown Pond, includes the location of a Protected Structure -Burns Cottage. According to the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage (NIAH), this was the home of Agnes Burns, sister of celebrated Scottish poet Robert Burns. In its appraisal, NIAH says that "the long low form of the building is enhanced by the balanced proportions, regularly placed openings and round-headed door opening."
A decision is due on this application by 5 April, with submissions due by 15 March.
