Fobairt Pobail Maigh Cuillinn has secured full planning permission to build an energy-efficient, multi-function community venture centre. It shall provide the capacity for community activity groups, sports, business, medical and government services. There is a major lack of essential community space within the parish of Maigh Cuilinn. This new centre will provide the space for a variety of activities for all age groups in our diverse community. It will focus on a high standard of integrated services , in particular for the disadvantaged and vulnerable groups. This project will help tackle a wide range of existing community issues, including education, training, social exclusion, poverty and disadvantage,while supporting the needs of children, young people and the elderly. The location is unique and rarely does such a site become available that is walkable, attractive and safe while reducing some barriers to physical activity.
This project has Community Approval
Community consultation/surveys has been completed including collaboration with the local authority/community groups and other relevant bodies.
This project will provide a significant contribution to the community and beyond, including direct and indirect local jobs and investment
This project meets the criteria of the government’s 2040 national planning framework.
“This proposed development will not only help tackle the lack of amenities that face our community but also will have a broader impact not just in the immediate locality but for the wider community as a whole. The proposal will deliver job creation in the area and is environmentally sustainable. It will be beneficial for sports, recreational tourism and from social inclusion perspectives.”
