Cork City Centre is the Healthy Heart of Cork. It's well being is essential to the wider region. In the post economic crash period, the city’s approach to urban revitalisation lagged behind it's European counterparts. Recognising this, a comprehensive study was carried out in 2014 to kick start transformative actions to revitalise the City Centre in partnership with a wide range of stakeholders. The Cork City Centre Strategy has established partnerships and collaboration to drive a wide range of actions to improve the quality of the city centre for all.
