Clara Town Centre First Plan - Update on consultations held and submission deadline

Urban Agency Architects Ltd and Offaly County Council in partnership with Clara Town Team have completed the second phase of Public Consultation to ensure the views and comments on Clara’s Town Centre First Plan will be considered to ensure local knowledge informs the opportunities that come forward over the next number of years.

The aim of the Public Consultation process is to take advantage of the great sense of community spirit in Clara, capitalise on the rich industrial heritage to maximise potential tourism, build on the natural infrastructure to deliver long term sustainable outcomes for the Town and maximise linkages and connections for the town.

Further details, including information boards used at the in person public consultation events can be found here: Clara Town Centre First Plan - Public Consultation - Offaly County Council

All information gathered by the Project Team will be used to inform the Draft Town Centre First Plan to be put on display in 2023.

A workshop was also held with students from Ard Scoil Chiaráin and Youth Reach prior to the public event.

For those that were unable to attend the in-person event, the information boards are available for inspection in Clara Library (as well as through the link above).

Comments and feedback with respect to the information boards can still be made up to and including 13th January, 2023 using
