Public Urged To Get Involved In Clonmel Redevelopment

“Town Centres are going through transformational change and now is an opportune time for Clonmel to re-imagine its future with input from stakeholders and community interests,” according to Local Councillor, Martin Lonergan.

 Tipperary County Council is seeking submissions from every section of the community in Clonmel and its environs as to how Gladstone Street and O’Connell Street in Clonmel might be developed to deliver a new future for the town and how traffic could be better managed and accommodated in this context.

 According to Cllr. Lonergan, “Tipperary County Council needs the views of the public and businesses for Clonmel Town Centre and want ideas on how Clonmel Town Centre should look and work in the future. Clonmel and Environs Development Plan 2013, as varied, seeks to redevelop the Town Centre and improve the vitality and vibrancy of the area and the views and ideas of the public as to how this could be achieved would be of real value.

As with Cahir Town Centre Plans, following submissions, workshops will be held around options which will inform the design brief and further public consultations. A design team will be appointed following the above processes to produce a detailed public realm proposal for the town centre including an assessment of traffic management and vehicle parking considerations,” according to Cllr Lonergan.

“The motto is Re-imagine Clonmel Town Centre with us, and those interested in submitting views and ideas towards the project are invited to do so via email or by post in an envelope clearly marked

‘Public Submission for Clonmel Town Centre Redevelopment’ and sent to Clonmel Borough District Engineer, Tipperary County Council, Emmet Street, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary,” concluded Cllr. Lonergan.  

The closing date for receipt of submissions is the 30th September 2017.
