The Environment, Community and Local Government Minister Alan Kelly’s review of the Athlone boundary between Westmeath and Roscommon is currently underway.
The submission period is coming to a close on Wednesday, January 27, and the Chamber is in the closing stages of preparing its submission. The Chamber has requested its members and other business owners and/or managers to contact it with their views on the matter.
The key areas for consideration are: the financial impact, positive or negative, of the proposed change and the likely benefits and costs or otherwise; whether businesses are likely to be impacted by any issues that may arise and how these may be mitigated; and the views of businesses on the current boundary arrangements and whether they feel a change is needed.
