The Paul Hogarth Company are delighted to announce that the Greystones Public Realm Plan has won Highly Commended in the Landscape Planning category at the Irish Landscape Institute award ceremony on 8th October 2020.
The project was commissioned by Greystones 2020 and Wicklow County Council and resulted in the production of a highly transformative and visionary document. From the outset, the plan sought to make Greystones a much more sustainable location to help address the climatic, demographic, and economic challenges faced by the town.
The project was a community-led initiative, driven by a steering group of residents, business owners, council officials and elected members. Accordingly, the multi-disciplinary team at The Paul Hogarth Company ensured that local voices were central to shaping the plan and facilitated a collaborative methodology with extensive public engagement.
The award-winning Public Realm Plan includes a broad range of innovative and bespoke projects to be delivered across the short, medium, and longer-term by a range of stakeholders. Looking to the future, the plan can now be used as the basis for upcoming funding applications to help deliver this exciting new shared vision for Greystones.
Grainne Mc Loughlin, chairperson of Greystones 2020 said “ we are delighted to have done so well at these awards and that the plan is recognised by experts in their field as one that will enhance and benefit Greystones in the future”
