The following statement has been issed by Collr. Matt Doran, Chairman of Kilkenny County Council on the recent controversy regarding the boundary and the decision by Minister Simon Coveney not to grant the extension despite the boundary commission recommending that it be granted:

“Kilkenny has always supported the growth of Waterford City. This is best seen in Kilkenny’s adoption of the Planning, Land and Urban Transport Study (PLUTS) 2004-2020. It provided for the growth of Waterford City towards a population of 80,000, over 40 per cent accommodated on the Kilkenny side of the river Suir.

“Thus Kilkenny’s vision for Waterford city is very much in keeping with Minister Coveney’s – a Waterford city that will double in size by 2040.“In our most recent submission to the National Planning Framework 2020-2040 we have again supported the growth and development of Waterford City at the heart of the south east region, providing for a population of 100,000, ie, to double in size.

“PLUTS is a high level, strategic document which facilitates our working together. For Waterford to double in size means providing for the equivalent of five neighbourhoods, each the size of Dungarvan, in the greater Waterford City area.

“The provision of critical infrastructure such as bridges, schools, community facilities, housing and improved access, are all necessary to allow for this level of growth and for Waterford City to develop in a sustainable manner. The South East region needs Waterford to be a strong, vibrant, central hub and Kilkenny continues to support this vision.”
