Local Fianna Fáil TD, Mary Butler has welcomed the confirmation from Glanbia that it intends to clean up their site in Kilmeaden
“This has been a long time coming, and this decision is one which will be universally welcomed by the local community as it will make the area a lot more attractive," Butler said.
“Recently, I and our two local councillors, Cllr. Ray Murphy and Cllr. John O’Leary met with Manager of South East Region IDA Brendan McDonald to discuss the brown field site."
“Among the issues we discussed were investment and development opportunities in due to the site’s proximity to the motorway, gas supplies, national grid power lines and a highly educated and talented local workforce," she added.
“It is most welcomed that Glanbia are working on a plan for the future phased development of the 64 acres site at Kilmeaden. I know that our Fianna Fáil team on Waterford City & County Council are eagerly awaiting their plans."
“This decision from Glanbia will now allow them look at the site with a different perspective and hopefully find a better use for it with a view to generating local employment,” concluded Butler.
