PRE-DRAFT PUBLIC CONSULTATION
The County Mayo Heritage Forum, facilitated by Mayo County Council, is preparing a County Heritage and Biodiversity Strategy and we would like to hear your views. The Heritage Forum comprises elected representatives, representatives from the community and voluntary sector and a wide range of organisations and state agencies with an interest in or responsibility for Mayo’s heritage.
The Heritage Act 1995 states that the national heritage includes monuments, archaeological objects, heritage objects, architectural heritage, flora, fauna, wildlife habitats, landscapes, seascapes, heritage parks and gardens, wrecks, geology and inland waterways.
We are seeking your input in setting the priorities for Mayo’s new Heritage and Biodiversity Strategy. We want to know the aspects of Mayo’s heritage and biodiversity that you value and want to see celebrated and conserved.
You can take part in the pre-draft consultation process by:
- completing the online survey at www.mayo.ie/heritage/Biodiversity-Strategy by 8th March 2023
- attending one of the upcoming pre-draft consultation drop-in information sessions to be held as follows:
|Ballina Library||Tuesday 28th February||4.30 pm to 7.00 pm|
|Claremorris Library||Wednesday 1st March||4.30 pm to 7.00 pm|
|Áras Inis Gluaire, Belmullet||Thursday 2nd March||4.30 pm to 7.00 pm|
Information gathered during this process will feed into the new Heritage and Biodiversity Strategy for the county, which will guide priority areas of action in Mayo up to 2030.
