LIMERICK City and County Council is to carry out a village renewal scheme in Patrickswell.
The scheme, similar to those carried out already in areas such as Mungret, Kildimo, and Adare, will include upgrades to public lighting, signage, footpaths, parking, pedestrian crossings and other public spaces and amenities.
The scheme is to be designed in consultation with the local community.
Limerick TD Niall Collins welcomed the move and said it represented “a great opportunity for local people to be involved and inform the future design, urban renewal and physical aspect of the village”.
The Fianna Fáil Deputy continued: “The Council is now in the process of assessing tenders received from suitable consultants to be appointed to do the design stage of the scheme. Once the consultant is appointed, which we expect will be very shortly, they will be in a position to begin the process.
“Cllr Sean Lynch has raised the need for this scheme at meetings of Limerick City and County Council on a number of occasions and we intend to work closely with the local community on this very important project. Now that both the sewage and water infrastructure has been upgraded in Patrickswell the timing is right for this project to proceed”, Deputy Collins concluded.
