Public Consultation Begins on Morrison’s Island Scheme

Cork City Council is seeking Part 8 planning permission for a €6 million Morrison’s Island Public Realm and Flood Defense Project.

The proposed scheme includes the remedial/strengthening works to the existing quay walls and the construction of integrated flood defense works.

These quays are the lowest lying in the city center and are a source of regular tidal flooding. Flood defenses are therefore a priority for this area, the council said.

The proposed scheme will deliver a high quality public amenity space which also delivers the required standard of flood protection.

The Lord Mayor, Cllr Tony Fitzgerald, said: “The proposals for Morrison’s Island represent an unmissable opportunity to bring about comprehensive regeneration of this historic area and to re-orientate this part of the city towards the river.”

In the coming days and weeks, widespread consultation is taking place around the project with briefings also being made to city councilors, business associations, local business, residents, community and voluntary groups and the wider public.
