Morrison's Island Public Realm and Flood Defence Project
COMHAIRLE CATHRACH CHORCAI
CORK CITY COUNCIL
RE: PART 8 – PLANNING AND
MORRISON’S ISLAND PUBLIC REALM
AND FLOOD DEFENCE PROJECT
Cork City Council proposes works at Morrison’s Island, Cork City, comprising remedial works to the existing quay walls, construction of public realm improvement works and flood defence works between Parliament Bridge and Parnell Bridge along Morrison’s Quay and Fr. Mathew Quay, and a short section along Union Quay close to Trinity Footbridge.
These quays are the lowest lying in the City Centre and are a source of regular tidal flooding. Flood defences are therefore a priority for this area. The proposals represent an opportunity to bring about comprehensive regeneration of this historic area, and the project aims to enhance the potential of the area for increased levels of business, recreation and leisure activity.
Due to disruption to the general public, and closure of the Civic Offices during Storm Emma, Cork City Council have extended the period that the proposals for Morrison’s Island will be on display, and also the date for final submissions and observations.
Particulars of the proposal will be available for inspection at:
- The Atrium, Cork City Council, from Monday 12th February until Thursday 29th March 2018 between 9:00 – 5.00pm, Monday to Friday
- Online at https://consult.corkcity.ie/en/
Interested parties are welcome to attend Public Information Sessions on:
Monday 26th February, 3:00 -7:00pm, Millennium Hall
Friday 9th March, 3:00 -7:00pm, Millennium Hall
Submissions and observations dealing with the proper planning and sustainable development of the area in which the proposed development is situated, may be made:
- electronically through https://consult.corkcity.ie/en/
- in writing in envelope clearly marked “Morrison’s Island Project” to the Environment & Recreation Directorate, City Hall, Cork
- by email to MorrisonsIslandProject@corkcity.ie
before 4.00pm on Thursday 12th April 2018.
