The plan is now submitted as a “Part 8 planning application” and submissions can be made up to 4.30pm on September 6th.
The plans will be on display in Cashel Library, and the council offices in Tipperary Town, Clonmel and Nenagh from July 15th and available on the council website at www.tipperarycoco.ie.
The plan will involve changes to traffic flow at Moor Lane, pedestrianisation of the Back of The Pipes area, changes to parking spaces, 5 new canopies on the Plaza, a new layout for the Plaza and refurbishment of the fountain.
There will be extensive changes to the street and footpath layout with use made of shared space between vehicles and pedestrians and raised tables on the road surface to alert vehicles.
All electrical wires will be undergrounded.
Significant new signage is also planned and a new bus shelter will be installed on the north side of Main Street.
The works will impact Main Street, and areas of Moor Lane, Friar Street, Bank Street, John Street, Lower Gate Square, Commandant PJ Hogan Square, Wesley Square, Agar’s Lane, Maher’s Lane, and Greenhouse Lane pedestrian Access lanes between Main Street to Friar Street Car Park.
