Chance to have a say on 'urban design critera' of Kilkenny's abbey quarter

The former brewery site, with St Francis Abbey (centre).

A public consultation workshop will take place in Kilkenny next week as part of the preparation of the ‘urban design criteria’ and development code for the former brewery site masterplan.

The criteria covers things like land uses, building lines, individual plot details, heights of buildings, guidance on roofscapes and detailing, appropriate exterior materials and finishes to be used.

It must be prepared as part of the Kilkenny City and Environs Development Plan 2014-2020. Its aim is to ‘translate the strategies, objectives and vision of the Abbey Creative Quarter Masterplan into urban design criteria and a development code, which will guide the nature and extent of development in the area’.

The workshop takes place in the Ormonde Hotel on Wednesday, April 19 at 7.30pm. To ensure numbers can be catered for, those wishing to attend must register by 4pm on Tuesday, April 18. You can register online at , email, or call 056-7794010.

As well as the public meeting, people can still make submissions or observations to the process from today until May 5. Email, visit or write to the Director of Services, Planning, County Hall, John Street, Kilkenny.
