LEDP has proven its importance to regeneration with the outputs of its success thus far; the LEDP Campus now boasts a 143-room hotel, retail outlets, vital community services, and a multinational retailer as well as the multiple activities carried out on a daily basis within the LEDP building. There are now over 1,000 direct jobs supported on the original site, a doubling of the original goal of replacing all of the 500 lost jobs with the devastating closure of the Moulinex-Krups factory. In addition, there are over 150 training and upskilling places filled annually at LEDP by various partners.
With a reinstatement of the inbound access from the south (M20), • it will contribute to the delivery of the 2040 National Planning Framework and the National Development Plan 2018-2027, targeting population growth of 50% by 2040 for Limerick. • Ballinacurra Weston and Southill will be reinvigorated as communities well located adjacent to Limerick city centre, with potentially high levels of accessibility. • The Southill area located immediately adjacent to the open countryside, offers possibilities to create a new urban edge, and visual and physical connections into this hinterland. • The strategic location and road infrastructure of Southill, represents a significant gateway location for the city. • The Southill Regeneration area possesses large areas of unused or under-used land where early development can promote regeneration.
The principal reason why I am making this submission is that I'd love to see the tourist potential of Limerick being realised further. I have lived in four Irish cities and Limerick is unique in many different ways, having a genuineness and honesty that is hard to define but easy to spot if one lives here for a while. Three of my children live here and my grandchildren will probably live here when they grow up!
The Maigue Rivers Trust's mission is to: To protect, enhance and cherish the rivers and lakes of the Maigue catchment for the benefit and enjoyment of all. Having consulted with representatives of all stakeholder groups and private individuals within the catchment, we believe our report, "An Exploration of the Recreation & Amenity Potential of the Maigue Rivers" gives the most recent assessment of recreation and amenity facilities in the Maigue catchment area of Co. Limerick. We invite and welcome LCCC to use the findings in the new County Development Plan.
Scoil Íde has been approached by the National Council of Special Education ( The NCSE) to develop a Special Class facility inclusive of two classrooms and associated facilities. This approach by the NCSE was based on identified need within the community to provide for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. This led to a detailed discussion by the Board of Management in which the identified needs of the whole school community were outlined. This discussion formed the basis for this submission.
