Local area regeneration with collaboration of stakeholders in Ireland

Last week, our partners from Ireland, Donegal County Council, started a series of workshops for the Church Lane – Cathedral Quarter regeneration project in Letterkenny. These workshops are intended to involve the stakeholders on the regeneration decision-making. This workshop attendees were, among others, members of the Cathedral Quarter committee, property owners, business owners and Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce.

This is one of the pre-planning spatial services that Donegal County Council is developing within IMPROVE project. It consists on the regeneration of the Church Lane area of Letterkenny by involving local stakeholders and by using a Geographic Information System (GIS). In the past few years this area has been falling into disrepair, however, it has great potential and the project is looking for recovering the former glory of the area and bring opportunities for local businesses and create jobs.

Daragh McDonagh, IS Project Leader (GIS) at Donegal County Council, demonstrated how a prototype map of Cathedral Quarter Points of Interests Tour would work on your tablet or mobile phone. He expanded how this platform could open up so many other possibilities. See this platform here

‎His colleague Eunan Quinn, Senior Planner at Donegal County Council, outlined how the technology can be used to help plan and develop Letterkenny for the future. This could pave way for other areas in the county. They are already looking forward to the next workshop as they take more steps on a very exciting journey.
