Canal Avenue and Environs

Canal Avenue, Mullingar

Current Status

Westmeath County Council has commenced an early consultation process regarding the regeneration of lands at Canal Avenue, Mullingar. This initial consultation is part of the preparation of a Masterplan funded by the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (URDF) which is provided to support sustainable development, as set out in Project Ireland 2040. Westmeath County Council have engaged Turley consultants to prepare a Masterplan. The Masterplan is intended to positively enhance and regenerate the area with the creation of an attractive and sustainable neighbourhood for residents, visitors and investors and a place where communities can thrive.

As part of this process, Westmeath County Council is inviting all stakeholders and interested parties including residents, retailers, institutions, and businesses as well as community and sporting groups to get involved in the process and express their views and aspirations for the area to help shape and inform the Masterplan. To facilitate this engagement, Westmeath County Council launched an online survey at www.canalavenue.ie on Tuesday 11 May 2021. The survey will close on 25 May 2021.

A dedicated information event will be held on Thursday 10 June 2021 at 6pm to discuss the project. Considering current public health restrictions, due to COVID -19, this session will take place digitally, via Zoom.
To complete the survey, find out more information and sign up to the online event visit www.canalavenue.ie.
