Fences should be erect around ESB pylons to stop children playing on them, Kildare County Council was told today. Cllr Ide Cussen said that youngsters were using the structures as makeshift climbing frames which could pose a health and safety hazard. The politician said that St Raphael's Manor estate in Celbridge in particular had a pylon that needed to fenced off. The issue was raised at a special Council meeting to discuss the draft public consultation on the Kildare County Development Plan 2017 – 2023. Officials said the blueprint will set out the strategic spatial vision and future direction for Kildare over a six year period up to 2023 and into the future. The Council hopes that every community group in the county will use the opportunity to provide input into the document.
