Conservation And Management Action Plan Launched For Russborough Parklands

Wicklow Minister Simon Harris has officially launched the Conservation and Management Action Plan [CMAP] for Russborough Parklands.

The project, has been funded under the LEADER programme and addresses the need for Russborough to approach the management of the landscape in an informed, sustainable and responsible manner.

Russborough  is expected to see an increase in visitors with the delivery of the Blessington Greenway and a number of housing developments in nearby towns. 

This project falls under the government’s new rural development ‘Our Rural Future’ which is a new milestone in the approach to the development of Rural Ireland in the post-COVID-19 recovery. 

Wicklow Minister Harris has acknowledged the Wicklow Local Community Development Committee, the Local Action Group for Wicklow for approving the LEADER grant funding for this project, and their Implementing Partner County Wicklow Partnership for working towards developing and delivering the project.
