Abbey Riverside

Introduction

Clare County Council, through the development of an Ennis 2040 Economic and Spatial Strategy, has set out ambitious economic strategy for the town. It proposes the prioritisation of sustainable development activities that will enable population growth of 1.6% per annum and the delivery of an additional 5,000 jobs by 2040. Nine Transformational Projects have been identified within the strategy focused on the regeneration of the town centre and the provision of infrastructure and facilities that will be required.

The strategic objectives of the plan are to:

Position Ennis as a location for investment

  • Make Ennis an exemplar as ‘Ireland’s First Climate Adaptive Town’ and properly position the town to transition to a low- carbon future.
  • Lead the way as ‘Ireland’s First 10 Minute Town’ where a range of community facilities and services are accessible in short timeframes
  • Develop a quality-of-life proposition in Ennis that sets it apart from other locations

The Abbey Riverside development project is part of the Ennis 2040 Economic and Spatial Strategy and is a key initiative set out in the County Development Plan 2023 to 2029. The overall aim is to deliver a range of strategic developments to make Ennis a better place to live, work, visit and invest in. Have Your Say by taking part in our survey.

The proposed Abbey Street development will be Mixed Use and will comprising the following:

  • Retail space at ground and first floor levels
  • Office accommodation at third floor level.
  • Boardwalk along the River Fergus linking with Harvey’s Quay and the Post Office Field
  • Public Realm Enhancement surrounding the development

The project team have prepared consultation boards (see the Consultation Boards panel) to illustrate what the development will comprise.
