Progress continues on planned rejuvenation of Boyle Town centre



A progress report on the Boyle Town Enhancement Plan will be presented to members of the Boyle Municipal District at their monthly meeting in March.

  The plan, titled ‘Boyle 2040’ which will see a rejuvenation of Boyle Town centre, has been the subject of research and planning by Boyle Town Team in conjunction with Roscommon County Council Town Centre Planning Unit for the last 18 months.

  It presents a framework for public realm enhancement to the north and west side of the town to include Main St., Bridge St. and St. Patrick St.

  The plan also includes a vision for the former Royal Hotel site and linkages to the proposed Lough Key to Boyle Greenway.

  Following the municipal district meeting, the plan will go on public display.

  Boyle Town Team Chairman Brian Nerney said the team were very excited at what ‘Boyle 2040’ contained.

  “Work has been ongoing now for nearly a year and a half on the plan with weekly, if not daily, interaction between Team members and Roscommon County Council”.

  “The plan is still being drafted at present and when fully finalised, it will go on public display for all to see.

  “It is exciting and I have no doubt will be widely welcomed, transforming Boyle Town Centre into one of the most modern in the area over the next number of years” concluded Brian.

  Roscommon County Council Director of Services Martin Lydon thanked the Town Team and the local authority Town Centre Planning Unit for all the work they are undertaking on the plan.
