Carlow County Council has announced the first public consultation in the development of Carlow Town Regeneration Vision & Implementation Strategy (RVIS) which is supported under Government of Ireland – Project Ireland 2040.

The first meeting will be held in the Seven Oaks Hotel, Athy Road, Carlow on July 25 from 6.30pm to 9.30pm.

The Carlow Town Regeneration Vision & Implementation Strategy aims to develop a detailed plan for a ‘Shared Vision’ for Carlow Town’s physical development over the next 20 years including the development of key economic development opportunities; urban spaces and amenities for enhancement; and infrastructural capacity.

The workshop will be facilitated by the project team led by Avison Young who "is delighted to be appointed to work on this project with Carlow County Council and look forward to engaging with the people of County Carlow and key stakeholders to develop a vision and action plan that delivers for the future potential for Carlow Town".

Avison believe the first stage in this process is active engagement by all and they welcome you to come to this review which will set the foundations for the future of Carlow Town.
