Ormond Castle area plan welcomed

A proposed improvement plan for the area around Carrick-on-Suir’s Ormond Castle has been drawn up.

Carrick Town Council’s elected members gave the go ahead at their March meeting for all “stakeholders” with an interest in this part of Carrick-on-Suir to be consulted on the draft Ormond Castle Quarter Improvement Plan.

Councillors were appraised of the plan’s proposals at a workshop earlier this month and it was widely welcomed by them at last week’s Town Council meeting.

Town Clerk Michael O’Brien said the consultation process would involve circulating the plan to the “relevant stake holders” and seek their views. The plan wouldn’t go out on full public display in the Town Hall as it was not a statutory plan. However, the Council would put the draft plan on its website, he explained.

Mr O’Brien agreed to Cllr Sylvia Cooney-Sheehan’s request to place an advert in The Nationalist informing the public about the availability of the draft plan on the local authority’s website.

Mayor of Carrick Cllr Kieran Bourke said the draft plan was ambitious and wonderful. “I think everyone should put their shoulder to the wheel to deliver this plan,” he said.

Mr O’Brien said the finalised plan would be presented to the Council’s last monthly meeting in May.
