Arranmore Island Integrated Development PlanCanavan Associates, in conjunction with Comharchumann Oileán Árainn Mhóir Teo, with assistance from Údarás na Gaeltachta, are preparing to launch the Arranmore Island Integrated Development Plan.
Preparatory works commenced in early in 2006. In August 2006, Canavan Associates conducted a survey of each household on the island, to ascertain the views of the community with regard to the future development of the island.
The Integrated Development Plan is based on the findings of the survey, as relayed by the community to the planners. Comharchumann Oileán Árainn Mhóir, founded in 1976, works in accordance with its aims: to promote the economic, social and cultural development of the island for the benefit of the whole community.
The Plan has identified many aims and amongst its main aims are:
- Language & Culture
- The Environment (Waste Management Plan, underway in conjunction with RPS Consultants)
- Facilities for Visitors and Tourism Promotion/Projects
- Renewable Energy
- Sports & Recreational Facilities
Comharchumann Oileán Árainn Mhóir will launch the plan in 2008. To obtain further information, contact Nóirín Uí Mhaoldomhnaigh/Seán Mac Eachmharcaigh, Comharchumann Oileán Árainn Mhóir Teo. 074 9520533
