2010 Blackpool Flower Box Scheme

It is recognised that landscaping, plants and flowers can provide a visual lift and positive contribution to our neighbourhoods and communities. 

As part of the Draft Blackpool Village Area Action Plan Cork City Council through RAPID are encouraging residents and commercial owners to create floral displays within Blackpool Village.  The area includes Watercourse Road, Thomas Davis Street, Commons Road, Dublin Street, Great William O’Brien Street, Gerald Griffin Street, Cathedral Walk.  (Map can be viewed through the link below).

Applicants must first register their interest with the City Council.  Applications will be determined on a first come, first served basis.  The Council will verify eligibility and successful applicants will then be invited to a launch event where the flower boxes will be planted up and given to the applicants to take away. 

The launch event will take place at Cork Foyer on Sat. 12th June 2010. Confirmation details will be issued in writing to successful applicants at a later date.
