Public meeting on plans for redevelopment of Island House in Killybegs


A public information event on new plans for the re-development of Island House in Killybegs is being held this week.

Plans for the re-development have been published by Donegal County Council's newly formed Regeneration and Development team.

The plans for place-based transformation and urban regeneration interventions in Killybegs seek to support the growing tourism sector in the town through the reuse of the Island House as a tourism facility which will include the development of a Digital Hub supporting further business, enterprise and innovation in Killybegs.

The Island House re-development is also supported by the proposed transformation of the existing public car park at the Diamond to a civic space which will regenerate the area, encouraging visitors and residents to spend more quality time in the town centre.

The public information event is being held on Thursday in the Bayview Hotel Killybegs from 2 to 8pm. Plans are also available for viewing in the County House, Lifford and in Donegal Public Services Centre and can be viewed during office hours until Tuesday June 18th and can also be viewed on the Councils website.

Submissions in respect of the development may be made in writing before 4:30pm on Wednesday 3rd July 2019.
