Urban Renewal Development Plan for Templeshannon, Co. Wexford
FAC, in association with Arup and Sheridan Tierney Architects has been appointed by Wexford County Council to prepare an urban renewal development plan for the Templeshannon area of Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford .
Enniscorthy is a traditional Irish market town at the heart of County Wexford, with a dramatic and scenic setting on the banks of the River Slaney. The town has a rich urban tradition dating back to its Norman foundations, and possesses many fine qualities, services and places, as well as being a popular visitor destination.
With its setting in the central urban area, and on the river bank, Templeshannon has potentially much to gain from two major infrastructural projects that are in process; the Enniscorthy By-Pass Project, the Enniscorthy Flood Defence Scheme and New River Crossing.
The goal of this commission is to take this opportunity to develop an ambitious urban renewal development plan for Templeshannon to significantly enhance the public realm of the area, improve the flow and management of traffic in the area and to increase its attractiveness for investment.
A vital part of this project will be a collaborative work process, and proactive engagement with stakeholders and the community to ensure a positive cycle of change and development for the area.
The project will be lead by Arup, who with our experienced planning team will be responsible for planning policy, economics, demographic analysis and GIS. The Draft Plan is scheduled to be completed by November 2016.
