Community Embark on Town Centre First Regeneration Plan for Kanturk

Elected members and staff of Cork County Council holding 2 signs, one saying "Town Centre First" and the other saying "Kanturk2.

Representatives from a range of local community and business groups attended an information evening to mark the first steps towards a Town Centre Regeneration Plan for Kanturk. The inaugural event offered over 40 community stakeholders in attendance the opportunity to meet with staff from Cork County Council’s Town Regeneration Office and to find out how to get involved.

Cork County Council will develop the regeneration plan in consultation with residents and business owners in the town, as well as with the wider community who visit the town regularly. The next step is a general survey of the Kanturk community that will help to guide the development of the plan. The survey will be made available on the Council’s website and at Kanturk Library over the coming weeks.

Deputising for the Mayor of County Cork, Cllr. Bernard Moynihan welcomed the information evening, noting 

It was very heartening to see such a range of local stakeholders in attendance, showing such interest in participating in this plan and developing a shared vision for Kanturk Town. This is an excellent opportunity for the local community to work together toward growing Kanturk’s reputation as a great place to live, to work and to visit.

The regeneration plan for Kanturk will be developed by Cork County Council in consultation with local stakeholders under the remit of the Town Regeneration Office, which forms part of the Government’s national Town Centre First policy initiative. 

As the plan development process progresses, future public consultation events will be advertised locally. Further information on participation is available by contacting
