Workshops for designing Villages

Workshops are being held in the three villages of the parish next week. The Following an initial walkabout of the villages by URS and the Community Council in early October the next stage of the project will be three workshops open to all. The plan is for the community and consultants from URS to work together to develop a vision for Coachford, Aghabullogue and Rylane.  A Workshop for Coachford will be held on Tuesday November 6th at 7.00pm in the GAA Hall.  Aghabullogue holds their workshop the following evening in the Community Hall and the workshop for Rylane will be held on Thursday night in the school hall at 7.00pm


Chairman of the Community Council, Peter Dineen said “ We are appealing for as many people as possible within our community to engage with this project as everybody’s input is required to make sure it will be successful and that the final Village Design Statements represents a shared vision for all three villages, we would be very grateful for your participation in this project and look forward to seeing you all at the workshop s in your village.


The consultants from URS will bring together the output from the workshop and prepare a presentation of a draft Village Design Statement at the end of November. Everyone will be able to give feedback on the plans at that stage before the Village Design Statement is launched in early January.
