Fingal County Council in conjunction with the National Transport Authority and Waterways Ireland is preparing a pedestrian and cycle route (Greenway) along the Royal Canal. The Royal Canal Urban Greenway will be a high quality, safe, attractive and environmentally sympathetic walking and cycling route which extends from Kildare County Council boundary to the 12th Lock (Old Navan Road), serving Castleknock, Blanchardstown, Clonsilla, Coolmine and the wider Dublin 15 area.

The proposed rural and urban greenway will encourage tourism and recreation while offering an attractive sustainable transport choice for residents and businesses, school children and commuters, bringing significant environmental, economic and health benefits to the wider community.

The Emerging Preferred Route was presented during the Non-Statutory Public Consultation from 25th February to 27th March 2019. Submissions were considered by the Project Team in further refining the route options assessment with the objective of determining the Preferred Route for the scheme. A further public consultation is now taking place on the proposals prior to the commencement of a Statutory Planning Process for the scheme.

Anyone with an interest in the scheme has an opportunity to review the plans and give feedback on the Fingal County Council website https://consult.fingal.ie. The closing date for receipt of submissions is the 7th of July 2021 with postal and online submissions to be received before 11:59pm on the 7th July 2021. Additionally, the Council's dedicated website contains significant information with respect to the Royal Canal Greenway at https://www.fingal.ie/royalcanalurbangreenway

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and public health restrictions on gatherings, we are not in a position to hold a traditional, in-person public consultation event during this round of public consultation. However, your feedback on the scheme is still important to us and we would encourage you to take part in the process so that you can help us make the Royal Canal Urban Greenway a flagship amenity in County Dublin that will benefit the whole community.

The closing date has passed and submissions are no longer being accepted.
