MEMBERS of the public are encouraged to attend an information evening on the next phase of the Ennis Public Realm Regeneration this week.

The information meeting will be hosted by Clare County Council on Thursday, March 31.

The next phase of the regeneration of the Ennis Public Realm will involve major construction works at O’Connell Street, High Street, Bank Place, Barrack Street, O’Connell Square and Barrack Square.

According to a spokesperson for Clare County Council, “The Public Realm Regeneration will significantly improve accessibility for pedestrians through the introduction of shared surface arrangements and by increasing footpath widths where possible.

“Advance enabling works involving the replacement of water mains by Irish Water and the upgrading of ESB underground cables are scheduled to commence in May 2022.

“The Public Realm Regeneration project works will follow thereafter. It is unavoidable that road closures will be necessary during construction.

“The Squares (Barrack Square and O’Connell Square) will be significantly enhanced to improve their amenity value and to facilitate their use as civic spaces.

“The completion of these projects will result in the rejuvenation of the Town Centre environment, making it more attractive and a better destination to spend time.”

The Project Team, comprising Clare County Council, Nicholas de Jong & Associates Urban Design and Tom McNamara & Partners are inviting people to attend this Public Information evening to present project phasing plans and to outline preliminary scheduling.

There will be an opportunity for discussion with representatives of the Project Team, Clare County Council and Irish Water and to view the project plans and provide feedback on proposed preliminary scheduling.    

This event will be held on Thursday at the Civic Room, Buttermarket Building, Clare County Council, Drumbiggle Road, Ennis, (V95RR72). All members of the public are encouraged to attend anytime between 5.30pm and 8pm.
