Shaping the Future of Irelands Towns Mallow - Presentation Available Online

Published: Tuesday, June 21, 2016

The central objective of this colloquium was to bring together key stakeholders from relevant government departments, local authorities, professional organisations, practitioners and local communities to investigate the potential for a joined up approach in exploring the techniques involved in the regeneration and development of Irish towns into the future. Mallow was first location in a potential series of towns to be explored in terms of urban design, economic development and place-making.

A series of short papers and presentations were made in a half day compact format, after which a discussion/workshop approach took place in the second half of the day followed by the identification of key objectives to be explored at a local level in a town visit. The programme for the colloquium was developed so that a short feedback report could be developed as a result of this community based CPD approach. The format is part of a new multi-disciplinary urban design CPD programme as developed by the RIAI but relevant to other built environment professional bodies.

A series of high level or strategic conclusions were summarised from the day including a presentation by workshop chairs on the key points of each workshop which will be available shortly. A keynote address was given by David Rudlin Managing Director URBED (Urbanism Environment and Design) and founding academician Academy of Urbanism. This presentation centred on the various tools involved in place-making and the challenges facing small towns in the UK.
