A strategic plan for the future development and management of marine-related industry and tourism along the Shannon Estuary, has been launched. The Strategic Integrated Framework Plan is a framework plan to inform the future development and management of this waterbody. This plan for Irelland’s largest estuary has been commissioned by Clare, Kerry, and Limerick City/County Councils, Shannon Development and the Shannon Foynes Port Company. The project is being overseen by a steering group comprised of these local authorities and other key stakeholders with an interest in the Estuary.
A new website www.shannonestuarysifp.ie has been developed and consultation will be undertaken from 17th December 2012 to 15th February 2013.
