Landowner disgusted with continuing saga over plans for Connemara road 

Thu, Aug 27, 2015

A Connemara based landowner says enough his enough as his land continues to be frozen  for the proposed  proposed route options for the R336 between Barna and Rossaveel and onto Scriob, leaving landowners in limbo.

Furbo based landowner Brian Forde says one of the proposed routes passes by the side of his house. He is disgusted this saga is being allowed to linger. "Families' lands have been blighted since the eight possible routes in respect of the R336 were decided upon in 2009,” he says. “ Many of these people have owned their property and land for decades. Now because they are located close to or in the line of one of the proposed routes for the R336, these families have been left with their properties devalued and no control over their own land. They are not entitled to develop their land, give a site to a son or daughter, or sell a site to raise some badly needed income. This is the position in which numerous families in Connemara find themselves.''
