Canal Avenue Mullingar Regeneration Consultation

Canal Avenue Mullingar

Westmeath County Council has today announced the start of 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.

The Canal Avenue Regeneration Project seeks to positively enhance and rejuvenate this area by creating a highly sustainable residential quarter which supports and encourages economic, social and community development and enhances connectivity to the the town centre, greenways, recreational areas, the Royal Canal and River Brosna and public transport nodes.

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 is launching an online survey at www.canalavenue.ie on Tuesday 11 May 2021. The survey will close on 25 May 2021.

Westmeath County Council are delighted to launch this community consultation, which provides an opportunity for residents and local businesses to have their say on what will make the Canal Avenue Regeneration Project a great place to live, work and enjoy, whilst retaining the existing residents who will see an improvement and positive change.

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.
