One of the primary roles of the Docklands Directorate is to spearhead the redevelopment of the North Docks Area and co-ordinate the implementation and delivery of the objectives of the North Docks Local Area Plan, 2005.
The North Docks area is within walking distance of the City Centre. It extends from Brian Boru Street in the west to Castleview Terrace (Lower) in the east and includes the railway station and surrounding lands adjacent to Horgan’s Quay, as well as residential/commercial areas along the Lower Glanmire Road. It occupies an important strategic position in the City as its re-development is crucial to unlocking the wider development strategy for Cork City Region as a whole and the Docklands in particular.
The North Docks Local Area Plan, 2005 was adopted by Council on 12th December 2005. The Plan sets out proposals for the transformation of the North Docks area of the City, which has the potential to become a thriving new urban quarter, attractive for business, as well as for people to live, work and visit.
An extensive range of uses is proposed:
