Planning Permission is required first!
It is a long way off starting yet.

The county board are in the process of putting together the design team which requires architects, engineers, QS & various consultants required for a project of this size.
Final designs are required for planning and then you will have the tender process.

And then you have funding. There is a long road ahead in securing funding for the different phases of the current proposal.

I would be amazed if any demolition / building started before 2019.

I understand that the tender process will run in tandem with planning permission so once permission is granted for the initial phase(s) they will be pretty much ready to rock, I hope that we will see some activity in 2018 and once funding is agreed then I don't see why we shouldn't see action soon as I don't think there will be any planning issues to overcome

Watching the hurling in Pairc Ui Chamoimh and the small stand there is lovely, something like that would do lovely for Navan. Maybe a little smaller as that is 8,000 but that's the template

Should be done asap. Get started whenever possible

Agreed, that's a fine stand and having the floodlights on pylons on the roof is another good job, four dressing rooms underneath and your away in a hack

No one could argue that patrc Tailteann needs to be developed but its proposed that clubs are funding it with a €5,000 levy for each club. So whether you're the biggest club or the smallest club in the county you pay the same amount. That will not work and should not be accepted as a proper funding proposal.

But there was unanimous approval from the clubs to proceed with the development at a county board meeting, not one voice of disapproval. I don't know if it's a levy or not but the clubs would have known before voting that some contribution would be needed and they all voted in favour, I think the clubs have options as to how they can contribute to the cause.

It is not a levy. It is an interest free loan to the County Board of €5,000 by each club and this money is being used for the €300k planning & tender process and not the actual development.

Correction to my earlier post. It is a €5k levy on each club which would seem unfair as the Dunganny levies were on a sliding scale from Senior to Junior.
