FT Responsibilities

In 2021, Stevens and Associates prepared report titled ‘A Vision for Lough Muckno Estate’ for Monaghan County Council and Failte Ireland. This report presented two concept tourism proposals.

Under this project, FT evaluated potential planning and environmental constraints associated with the concept proposals and determined the following:

  • Concept proposal components that could potentially proceed,
  • Concept proposal components that may require planning and environmental mitigation measures or concept modifications if proceeding, and;
  • Concept proposal components that do not comply with relevant County Development Policies and pose a significant environmental impact as presented.

The study was suitably informed by public and stakeholder consultation.

FT made several recommendations in relation to the concept tourism proposals that will serve to appropriately shape the nature of development to take place at the site in the future.
