Public Consultation for Public Realm Plan – Thursday 19th September – Whale Theatre, 5.00-9.00pm

By | EVENTS, Notices

Greystones 2020 in partnership with Wicklow County Council, Greystones Municipal District and support from Greystones Tidy Towns and funding from LEADER, have appointed the consultancy company The Paul Hogarth Company  to develop a plan for the most effective presentation, management and enhancement of the town’s public realm, with particular reference to the following:

  • Public space network
  • Connectivity and permeability
  • Parking and traffic
  • Legibility/maneuverability
  • Signage and Wayfinding
  • History and heritage
  • Tourist destination

The aim of the project is to develop a strategy for the town’s public realm, which can be used to identify and provide guidance for individual detail design projects. The plan will be visual and identify both short term and longer-term projects.

It is intended that the strategy will stimulate interest and activity among all the community in carrying out the activity to enhance the town of Greystones and that all stakeholders will be involved in developing a shared vision for the development of Greystones. The successful consultancy has gathered together a team with general expertise in urban design and regeneration, road design, traffic management and planning.

This plan will indicate, in broad terms, the role of the public realm including key urban spaces designated for enhancement, pedestrian priority linkages and the nature of restraint in remaining trafficked areas (speed reduction, space sharing, calming, lane restrictions, vehicle restrictions, bus priority). The strategy will contain an overall design statement which will inform the development of the public realm.

Public Consultation

There is a Public Consultation for Public Realm Plan on Thursday, 19th September at the Whale Theatre from 5 pm to 9 pm. If you can’t come along but would still like to ‘have your say’ – please complete the online feedback form here.
