OMP have been involved over the years in extensive Masterplanning work in the medieval city of Kilkenny. The objective of the City Centre Local area plan is to balance the impacts of the development of the city core with the need to ensure its sustainability as an attractive place to visit, to work and to live. Kilkenny is a tourist location as well as being a county town and the masterplan proposes new open spaces with linkages to improve permeability and pedestrian access, together with proposals for suitable building uses. The masterplan makes recommendations for the improvement and redevelopment of derelict and underused sites around the core, proposes a strategy for managing parking needs and advises on a way- finding and signage strategy.
