Call for Public Input on Ballyminion Masterplan

Longford County Council’s Regeneration Team are hosting a public consultation day today, Monday 1st October, in Longford Town Library.

A masterplan for the Ballyminion area is being development by the Council’s Regeneration Team to stimulate physical development that is underpinned by a commitment to community development and environmental sustainability.

The Ballyminion area has been recognised as an area of strategic importance in the Longford Town and Environs Local Area Plan 2016-2022. It is believed the area could act as a potential catalyst for the further development of Longford Town. The region is home to a range of commercial, community, and residential activity including Pulse Logistics, the Primary Care Centre, and the Glenn Riada housing estate.

‘An area of unmet potential’ soon hopes to welcome new investment that will promote the provision of amenity and recreational facilities. The Masterplan aims to ‘explore fresh solutions’ that will benefit the existing residential community while establishing an attractive destination to visitors; one that prioritises walking and cycling, and enhances connections to Longford Town Centre.

Today’s event is the commencement of the Masterplan process, with Longford Council calling for public input that will explore the potential that lies in the Ballyminion area. The Longford Regeneration Team are eager to gather views on living in Ballyminion from as many people as possible. The team hope to collect a range of positive views, negative views, and aspirations for change of Ballyminion and the surrounding area.

The Regeneration Team invite the community to participate by visiting Longford Town Library from 10am until 7:30pm today, or by sending an email to ballyminionplan@longfordcoco.ie Attendees of today’s public consultation will get a chance to meet with the Regeneration Team and discuss objectives and ideas related to the area masterplan.
