Some of the immediate actions being taken include:

  • A deep clean of the main retail and pedestrian areas
  • Decluttering and fixing street furniture
  • Replanting of trees and flowerbeds
  • Additional road/pavement markings
  • Measures to improve public space utilisation for pedestrians and business

Project ACT Town meetings are taking place this week, involving Elected Members, council staff, business and community representatives, members of An Garda Siochána, and representatives from the Cork County Older Persons Council.

Further details on Project ACT will be announced after a period of consultation on how best to implement further changes, and how to support businesses looking to re-open safely at the appropriate time.
