Cork Business Association, Cork Chamber Support Lower Lee Scheme

Cork Business Association and Cork Chamber said in their latest release that they have welcomed the progress shown in the detail and design of the Lower Lee flood relief scheme following the publication of the OPW consultation report.

Both organizations believe that the development of an appropriate flood-defense scheme is critical for business in Cork.

The proposed OPW scheme provides comprehensive protection from tidal and fluvial flooding through a raft of measures from upstream bunds to the restoration of 3km of walls in the City Center.

Chamber President, Bill O’ Connell, said: “We’ve been consistent in our support of the scheme, provided that it is finished to a high standard and respectful to the heritage of the city. It is important to note the extensive lengths being taken, not only through the provision of flood protection but through innovative measures at locations such as North Mall and Sullivan’s Quay.”

According to their announcement, both organisations look forward to the lodgement of the Morrisons Island Part 8 application which will mark the first phase of the project.

The Part 8 process will provide the opportunity for further consultation on this element. Following completion of Morrison’s Island, the project will move upstream away from the city with works being carried out on a phased and incremental basis.
