New ‘blueprint’ launched for development of Creggs

A number of projects are included in the new plan for the future development of Creggs village which was officially launched the Cathaoirleach of Galway County Council Peter Keaveney at Creggs National School last week.

  The new ‘blueprint’ for the village includes plans for a remote co-working space, an upgraded streetscape and the development of a new sewage treatment plant.

The development plan has been led by the local community and facilitated by MKO Ireland, a planning and environmental consultancy firm, which is based in Galway.

  Enhanced street lighting, a new looped walk as well as solutions to local flooding issues are featured in the plan which also focuses on climate change after this emerged as a subject of interest in the early planning stage.

Possible funding streams for local initiatives are also included while a new sewage plant is seen as a priority by the local community.

  The recent launch was addressed by stakeholders such as Pamela Harty, a senior planner with MKO, Cathaoirleach of Galway County Council Peter Keaveney, and Chairperson of the Creggs Development Committee, Sean Beirne.
