The Limerick Southside Masterplan is being developed to make the most of the existing assets of lands at the southern side of the city and introduce uses, which improve safety, so that the local community can enjoy it.
Limerick City and County Council has appointed an internationally renowned firm of architects and urban planners, Allies and Morrison, to develop a masterplan for 75 hectares of land, primarily in public ownership, to the south of the city.
Allies and Morrison, based in London and Dublin, is working with the Housing Development Directorate of Limerick City and County Council to create an overarching and holistic plan for the strategic landbank including Baggot Estate, Ballinacurra Creek, Toppin’s Field and the Rosbrien lands adjacent to the M20.
The process will include thorough engagement and consultation with local community groups and interested stakeholders as well as understanding the existing physical and policy constraints.
The team will be exploring a wide range of options for new recreation uses, nature conservation, homes, employment and community infrastructure.
As part of the engagement with the public, a roundtable workshop is taking place on Thursday 29 November 2018 from 6pm until 8pm at the Limerick Strand Hotel. This will be an opportunity to find out more about the masterplanning process and provide feedback.
Following the event, feedback will be recorded and used to inform the development of the proposed masterplan, while there will be further community engagement events taking place as the masterplan project progresses.
