Tullamore Grand Canal Harbour Masterplan

Public Consultation

 13th June – 11th July 2024

Offaly County Council with Waterways Ireland and Consultants Grafton Architects are seeking your views for the future of Tullamore. To ensure that the Tullamore Grand Canal Harbour Masterplan meets the aspirations of the whole community the team would like to hear from all stakeholders within the local community of Tullamore.

The Tullamore Grand Canal Harbour Masterplan is Funded by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage under the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund 2020 (URDF), co-funding by Offaly County Council and Waterways Ireland .

The Tullamore Grand Canal Harbour Masterplan, jointly commissioned by Waterways Ireland and Offaly County Council, has provided the prism through which future transformation and regeneration of the harbour area can be envisioned.  Grafton Architects as the appointed consultancy team, have culminated their assessment of the study area in a Masterplan that reimagines the harbour area through a catalogue of scaled development opportunities. The Masterplan study area also includes the Grand Canal Harbour and adjacent lands, the Canal Spur Line enabling access into the harbour basin, and Young’s Store - a three-storey former warehouse with an approximate floor area of 275 square metres fronting the canal along Convent Road.

The Tullamore Grand Canal Harbour Masterplan is available for inspection in the offices of Offaly County Council, Áras an Chontae,  Tullamore Municipal District, Tullamore Library during normal office hours from 13th of June 2024 to 11th July 2024. An open day will be held in Tullamore Library on 20th June from 12pm to 7pm.
