Requesting essential support and funding for Garryowen
Increase the provision for water based activities, and the number of pool facilities in the Draft Limerick City and County Development Plan 2021.
We need more ambition for a walkable city and county in our Development Plan.
There are inconsistencies and systemic shortcomings in the Draft Limerick Development Plan 2022-28
A revised public policy is needed to stimulate City Centre investment.
A Community Centre for Garryowen needs to be a priority and included in the Limerick Development Plan 2022-2028. It should be specifically identified in the plan with a clear timetable for construction.
The exclusion thus far of the LEDP Building as an "opportunity site" is an oversight which does not acknowledge the contribution of LEDP, the LEDP Building - both directly and indirectly - which has had an enormous positive impact on Limerick City South, both socially and economically, and will continue to do so into the future.
At a city-wide scale, Southill is a highly accessible location, strategically situated to present a new southern gateway to Limerick City. There is an opportunity to guide development towards the Childers Road, and develop the area as a medium density mixed use quarter focussed on a new node, creating a new neighbourhood with a critical mass of people to support amenities and public transport. Southill also presents a major opportunity to form a new edge to the city, overlooking the surrounding countryside. At Ballinacurra Weston there is an opportunity to create a high-quality new neighbourhood, that is focused on new connections both east-west between Hyde Road and Prospect Hill, and north-south between Childers Road and Byrne Avenue. These new connections will ensure that the neighbourhood will be well integrated with its surroundings, and highly accessible to the city centre. In both Regeneration areas, opportunities exist to create new urban structures that make better use of existing topography, improve permeability and connectivity, and improve access to and from and between sites. A new mix of land uses, new housing layouts, mix and tenures can be provided, integrated with an attractive, well designed and maintained public realm. All these future opportunities can only be realised with the first step of reintroduction of the inbound access from the M20. The loss of the inbound access has undoubtedly undermined the potential future viability of uses in the Regeneration Area and contributed further to its severance.
A Community Centre for Garryowen needs to be a priority for the Council. It should be specifically named in the plan with a clear timetable for construction.
My opinion is that Limerick, in addition to investment in infrastructure, would benefit from a proactive approach to enhancing confidence and self-assuredness of its citizens. Limerick is no different to any other place in this respect. We are very fortunate at present in that we can build on these traits which are evident, and have been commented on, in our sporting endeavours. Traditionally this was rugby but they are evident in abundance now in hurling as well. We could really hit the ground running on this one!
The Maigue Rivers Trust commissioned the study "An Exploration of the Recreation & Amenity Potential of the Maigue Rivers" to establish what the recreation and amenity potential is within our catchment in County Limerick. It was finalised and published in August 2021. Having consulted with 50+ stakeholders across the catchment the study documents current facilities and services, addresses information gaps, and prescribes a range of potential developments that are likely to be effective if developed. The findings of this study complement the County Development Plan objectives.
Build a primary school that serves the Groody Valley/Castletroy area

Additional Residential Zoning of Land
That Corbally would benefit from the development of a cycle lane from Scoil Íde out towards Shannon Banks & Westbury in one direction and from Scoil Íde to Grove Island in the other direction.
The Bishop's Field in Corbally is zoned as "Open Space and Recreation". It is the belief and hope of the Board of Management of Scoil Íde that this status will be retained.
Lack of joined up thinking between policies on quality of life, air quality etc as there is no mention of a Tree Policy or a Tree Strategy
