For residents, recreational users and interests

Waterways Ireland, the local authorities and other stakeholders want to find out what your views are on recreational and tourism opportunities along the Lower Bann and how to manage them, as well as what investment might be needed. The Lower Bann itself is the focus of our attention, but a mile wide corridor is also part of the study area. 

There's an alternate survey for tourism operators and workshops for everyone to give their views.

We would welcome your comments on specific sites, paths, locations, access roads, improvements that need to be made etc.
