Save Cork City members (above) on Saturday at Sullivan’s Quay, Cork
Some of your readers might be interested in an evening of short talks and discussion we’ve planned for this Wednesday in Cork.
We’re concerned that a heavy-handed flood defence scheme planned by the OPW [Office of Public Works] for Cork City lacks proper consideration and will irreparably change the face of the City.
We are also concerned that the OPW has not done enough to publicise these proposals ahead of their deadline for feedback on the 17th of this month.
In order to avoid the waste of huge amounts of money on a project that we are unconvinced will be successful and will certainly see Cork lose a large part of its character and charm, we are looking for an independent design review of the project and a meaningful public consultation process.
To get the word out and encourage some informed conversation on the project, we held gatherings in three locations around the City last Saturday and are organising a symposium this Wednesday evening at 7pm at Boole 3, University College Cork
We’re also trying to encourage as many people to engage with the OPW’s feedback process by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org before February 17, with their concerns. Thank you
