Report on Colloquium in Drogheda County Louth

Published: Monday, November 02, 2015

Following the successful launch of our pilot project, Shaping the Future of Irish Towns, in Mallow Co. Cork last June 2014, the RIAI in association with Louth County Council and the Academy of Urbanism held an all-day Colloquium event in Drogheda County Louth on 18th September 2015.

The symposium was attended by over 140 people from all over Ireland and promoted a multi-disciplinary approach to local communities and stakeholders in developing a consensual vision of their futures, to show the benefits architects and other professionals can bring to such a vision and to showcase exemplary progress elsewhere.

Topics included: What plans are there for the greater Boyne Valley and getting around? What about vital development in the Historic Town Core? How should traffic, parking and the Public Realm be managed in the Town Centre? What is the future of the Port? Who will drive the Town forward successfully? What can Architects bring to these issues?
