Notice is hereby given that Mr Alan Kelly TD, Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government has established a Boundary Committee to carry out a review of the local government boundary in Drogheda between County Meath and County Louth and to prepare a report under Part V of the Local Government Act 1991.

The Boundary Committee is independent in the performance of its functions.

Alternatively, or in addition, submissions in writing can be made to the undersigned. Submissions should be received not later than 5pm on Friday 22nd January 2016 and will be published on or after this date on the Review website.
Following consideration of submissions relevant to the terms of reference, and of the outcomes of such consultation as may be carried out by the Committee, the Committee will make such recommendations with respect to the administrative boundary of County Meath/County Louth and any consequent recommendations that they consider to be necessary in the interests of effective and convenient local government in due course. The Committee will prepare and furnish to the Minister a report in writing of that review and its recommendations.
The Terms of Reference, for the Boundary Committee and maps, showing the existing boundary and the Committee’s area of interest are on display for public inspection at the offices of Meath County Council and Louth County Council.
