Two Kildare canoe clubs have been granted permission to build extensions to their respective premesises. Kilcullen Canoe Club will build a gym over its canoe store while the Salmon Leap Canoe Club in Leixlip will extend its boat storage shed.
Kilcullen Canoe Club submitted its plans for the first floor extension to Kildare County Council in mid April. On 6 June the plans, which include the provision of a balcony on the southern side of the Market Square building, were accepted.
On 11 June KCC approved the Salmon Leap club’s plans to increase the size of its boat shed on the Barnhall Road in Leixlip so that more boats can be stored.
