Details of a village enhancement strategy for Doolin will be outlined at a public meeting on Thursday night next.
Bucholz McEvoy Architects, on behalf of Clare County Council and the strategy design team, will present the final plan, which seeks to enhance the public realm of Doolin, at a meeting in Hotel Doolin.
Among the enhancement strategies indentified is the creation of a Doolin Greenway incorporating shared surfaces, the provision of additional off-street parking and the provision of designated bus stop locations.
“The village enhancement strategy forms part of the Doolin Strategic Master Plan and Enhancement Strategy, which also features plans to develop a Visitors Service Centre at Doolin Pier, details of which are expected to be finalised during 2018,” stated Brian McCarthy, acting director of economic development, Clare County Council.
He added, “The event on Thursday night is the concluding element of the preparation of a non-statutory village enhancement plan following previous public consultations in June. Over the last number months the design team has considered the submissions and this final plan takes on board the consideration of the submissions and I would encourage people to attend.”
