Roscommon County Council today voted to retain 50% of previously zoned lands around Roscommon town at variance with the recommendations of the Roscommon Council executive.

Addressing the respective County Councillors, Martin Lydon, Head of Finance and Planning advised that the Town Plan would more than likely have to be revisited once submitted to the Dept. of the Environment due to insufficient progress being made on the original proposals.

Today’s amendments will now form part of a new plan thought to be ready for circulation by November.
