12 - Biodiversity & Green Infrastructure


The proposed construction of an inner relief road through Naas Racecourse is directly at odds with the plans to support the environment and biodiversity. This road will cause the loss of a valuable untouched green space which is currently used by walkers, joggers, dog walkers and families regularly. If this road goes ahead here, there will be an irreperable interference with the biodiversity of this area. The effects on wildlife, rabbits, foxes, hedgehogs, birds, insects, wildflowers, bees etc. will be catastrophic for this area. A main road through this green space would be a great loss to the town of naas.
