Washingbay Access to Nature and Water

Muintir na Mointeach which is a local community group based on the shores of Lough Neagh wish to create a local nature walkway through scrub and infill at a brownfield shore site to emerge onto a beach traditionally used at the Washing Bay. The main outputs include carrying out an environmental impact assessment to gain statutory permissions, the restoration of a small beach, the removal of 0.3 hectare of scrub and infill, increased access to the Lough and the attraction of over 1000 visitors per year after year one.
