€1 billion dockland development for Cork

Monday, 19th June, 2017 10:44am

Cork City Council will tomorrow host a consultation on the future of Cork’s docklands, which could see thousands of jobs and houses created and transform the city centre.

The local authority is planning to develop more than 200 hectares at an estimated cost of €1 billion.

This redevelopment is made up of two plans, called the Cork City Docks and the Tivoli Docks.

Cork City Council has begun preparation of local area plans (LAPs) for the Cork City Docks and for the Tivoli Docks.

The Council say that it made the commitment to prepare a LAP for the City Docks in the Cork City Development Plan 2015 - 2021. This new plan will replace the North Docks Local Area Plan 2005 and the South Docks Local Area Plan 2008.

As a first step, the City Council is undertaking a pre-plan consultation and invited all stakeholders and interested parties to identify the issues that they feel need to be addressed in the plan, and how the area should be redeveloped. This consultation will begin tomorrow and is already booked out.

Cork City Docks plans 

The Cork City Docks is a 160 hectare development project of national significance that is unequalled in Munster and only equalled by Dublin Docklands in Ireland, the Council has claimed.  

The City Docks lies between Cork city centre and Tivoli Docks and has a waterfront of four kilometres in length. To the north lies the St Luke’s and Wellington Road area and to the south of the South Docks area lies the Blackrock Road area that connects Victoria Road to Blackrock Village.

Cork City Council has ambitious plans to build 810 housing units on the north docks and 8,700 on the south docks. As for employment, it has projected that there will be 4,000 employees on the north docks and 25,000 on the south docks.

Tivoli Docks plans 

Tivoli is a site of 61.5 hectares, located on the northern bank of the River Lee, approximately 2.5 kilometres east of the city centre.

The site measures 2.5km in length (including the Port of Cork Millennium 2000 Park); with a river frontage of three kilometres.

It is bounded by the Cork-Cobh rail-line, the N8/Lower Glanmire Road to the north, the River Lee to the south, and the Glashaboy River to the east.

It plans to create 3,000 residential units and 4,000 jobs.

Cork City Council invites written submissions to the plan-making processes. Submissions must include your own name and address and clearly identify which local area plan process they relate to.

The deadline for the receipt of submissions is 1pm on Friday 7 July. Submissions can be made at
