Chapter 9: Sustainable Communities and Social Infrastructure

With the significant increase in footfall, traffic, and housing from the proposed revitalisation of the Towlerton (TN01) and Groody Valley areas (GV01 CHAPTER 10), more facilities are needed along the Groody Road. For example, the nearest public playground or park is 6 km away (Castletroy Playground), and there is no community centre, GAA centre nearby. The Castletroy Local Area Plan called for the inclusion of a walkway within the Groody Valley Green Wedge, whcih is not present in the Limerick Strategy Plan. 

We request that the plan include more in the 'Groody Valley' area than the student accomodation on the Dublin Road (SCSI O1). This should incorporate more facilities and amenities such as a large public playground, community centre, a walkway connected the Groody Valley Green Wedge, and/or sports grounds. Already there is a significant increase in the infrastructure in our area (Groody Road, secondary school and hospital) withe little in the way of facilities for the local community. 

Main opinion: 

Include more facilities and amenities within the planned 'Groody Valley' (GV01) revitalisation plan

Main requests: 

Include more facilities and amenities within the planned 'Groody Valley' (GV01) revitalisation plan

Main reasons: 

Increase in population due to the new Secondary School and Private Hospital
