Council to engage with public as part of Marina redesign

Cork City Council is preparing to engage the public as part of its continuing plans to redesign amenity areas on the Marina.

The local authority is inviting as many people as possible to City Hall on Tuesday next to examine plans which have already been drawn up by its consultants, Dutch and Irish landscape architects OKRA and REDscape.

They have begun the preparation of a landscape masterplan for green spaces surrounding the Marina and stretching from the Showgrounds in Ballintemple to Church Avenue, Blackrock.

The move follows on from an initial meetings with the Save the Marina Park group and local residents groups held recently in Blackrock.

City Hall is hoping people from all over Cork who use the area to have an input into its future. Officials are inviting feedback and new ideas from the public on the potential uses of facilities which should be considered for inclusion in the park.

The public consultation meeting will be held in the foyer of the new civic offices at City Hall 4.30pm-8pm.

Meanwhile, submissions are being accepted on the project and should be delivered to City Hall in writing by no later than 4pm on June 8. They should be addressed to Seamus Coghlan, senior engineer, Strategic Planning and Economic Development Directorate, City Hall, Cork, or by email to
