Wexford County Council is committed to revitalising, regenerating and facilitating the redevelopment of the core urban centre of Wexford Town for the benefit of the town’s employees, local residents and visitors alike.
The Council has commissioned an Economic & Spatial Strategy that will focus on the Quays, the Town Centre and the connecting links to develop a strategy with plans for the redeveloping of these areas as an economic driver for the town & environs. The strategy is due to be completed in October/November 2017 & will be presented to the Members of the Borough District of Wexford before the end of the year.
Within the study area, Trinity Wharf, Crescent Quay and the Waterfront have been identified as key sites
The Trinity Wharf site will facilitate a mix of office, leisure & residential development, with a primary objective of increased sustainable employment. It will also include the development of high quality public realm spaces within the development and pedestrian friendly links along the waterfront linking to the Crescent and to the town centre.
Crescent Quay is a central site within the project area and represents a unique feature of the town’s public realm. It is proposed to transform the Crescent into an active public space, remove vehicular dominance & enhance the public realm. It is proposed to develop a mix of commercial and public realm spaces that will make the area a landmark feature within the town. Enhanced connectivity with the Main Street, Trinity Wharf & the Quays forms an integral part of the proposal.
Wexford County Council has secured €1.0m under ERDF funding which with matching funding the council will provide a budget of €2.2m for initial public realm enhancement works.
