Feedback On Tipp Hills Enhancement Can Be Submitted By Form

35

Tipperary County Council have confirmed that feedback on the proposed Tipperary Hills Enhancement works can be submitted via a form available in the lobby of the Council offices on Rosanna Road in Tipperary town.

The proposed improvements are also on display in the council office lobby as well as on the council website. Funding of €500,000 was secured for the project via the Town and Village Renewal Scheme last year and there will be a part 8 planning application in early 2023 giving the public a further opportunity to contribute to the design.

The council will take feedback on the proposal until 4pm on December 5th. The council offices are open Mon – Fri between 9.30am to 4.30pm.

Dave Ryan Landscape Architect Design Team from Limerick city are the lead designers for the project.

The project aims to upgrade and improve access to the site from the town centre and public transport stops.

Improve the pathways to deliver a gradient no greater than 1:20 with improved paths, steps and ramps with railings.

The level area of grass will be improved to pitch quality, two locations within the Tipperary Hills for use as a picnic spot and social area are also proposed.

Seating and signage will also be upgraded. Planting of trees and flowers is proposed to improve the area as a habitat and to screen the existing mast and to reframe some of the views from the local park that covers almost 23 acres.

Consideration will also be given to the potential for an amphitheatre and meeting point/seating/BBQ area and an improved layout for the carpark.
