Limerick Council seek public engagement on ‘plan-led’ Arthur’s Quay area Framework Plan

The Arthur's Quay Framework area.

LIMERICK City and County Council will hold a public forum event throughout today to discuss the future of the Arthur’s Quay area. The forum will seek the public’s view on the Framework Plan for the section of the city, which the Council say will be “plan-led and place-based”.

The event will take place at the Citizen Innovation Lab on Sarsfield Street (the former Dunnes Stores building) today (Friday June 23) from 12 noon to 7pm.

Limerick City and County Council, in collaboration with Metropolitan Workshop, are developing a Framework Plan for the Arthur’s Quay area of Limerick City which, according to the Council, “will set out the guidelines for a comprehensive, plan-led, and place-based approach to the redevelopment of this area and lead to the transformation of the city centre”.

The aim of the event is for the Council to engage with members of the public and seek opinions on what can be done to make the area “more attractive, more appealing, and a better functioning place for all its users”.

“Your views and experience help us understand what makes this part of the city great and as it develops, how it can be improved,” a spokesman for the Council said.

The Arthur’s Quay area forms part of the World Class Waterfront project, which will be funded by the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (URDF).

A display will feature on the day outlining plans for the area under the Arthur’s Quay Framework, a snapshot of the analysis completed to date, and the opportunity for people to give their views and feedback on the proposed plans.

Vincent Murray, Director of Planning, Environment, and Place-Making with Limerick City and County Council said: “We are excited to have this opportunity to get the public involved and share their views on the future of what is a really important part of the city centre”.

An online survey is available to be completed on the project website until July 30, with more information available on
