There are calls for the planning process to be speeded up to try and save homes and farms facing the threat of rising flood waters

Water levels at Lough Funshinagh have dropped four inches since peak levels this year.

In an update at Monday's meeting, officials at Roscommon County Council say they are actively working to protect public roads and houses in the area.

Mr Shane Tiernan, Director of Services says that a team is progressing the design of the long-term solution which will involve going on site this week to investigate soil and stone in the area.

He says this work will take up to 10 days to complete.

Councillor Tony Ward has called for the local authority to progress an application for a Part 10 procedure to An Bord Pleanala to pave the way for farmers to be compensated for the loss of income as a result of lands being submerged.
