Despite the economic recovery, many regional towns across Ireland are still in decline, with shops closing and young people leaving for opportunities elsewhere. Westport, Co. Mayo has largely bucked this trend but how has this been achieved?
Simon Wall, an architect with Mayo County Council with responsibility for Westport, will be with us in Wexford Library to illustrate and talk about the successful urban regeneration of the town over the last 20 years and to offer it as a positive template for other regional towns.
This talk will connect with anybody who has an interest in their own town’s survival and future. It is aimed at the general public but will be of especial interest to Councillors, community groups, Tidy Towns groups, heritage groups and societies, Chambers, environmental groups, local authority staff, architects, planners and engineers.
Please phone Wexford Town Library on 053 9196760 to book a place. Should you require any supports to fully participate in this event, please contact the Librarian.
