Submission date for feedback on Midleton flood relief scheme extended

On March 7, Cork County Council hosted a Public Participation Day at Midleton Park Hotel at which a number of potential options were presented to an audience of over 200 people. The event served as an opportunity for local people to meet representatives from the scheme, ask questions and provide feedback on the scheme options displayed.

Cork County Council, along with the OPW and ARUP Engineering provided an update on progress to date, while outlining the present-day flood extent and the next steps required in progressing the scheme.
