The design team for the ambitious €9.8 million Ballybofey-Stranorlar Regeneration Strategy is expected to be appointed next month.
Donegal County Council also confirmed to Donegal Daily that the land valuation services will be announced at the same time.
“Following appointment of the Integrated Design Team, a programme of works will be determined, outlining proposed commencement dates,” the council spokesperson said.
However, it is understood that work will start before the end of the year.
Funds have been approved for the impressive ‘SEED Project’ which will see the restoration and redevelopment of the old Ritz Cinema in Ballybofey as an enterprise centre.
The car park opposite (above) will get a major makeover to create a new, high quality, multi-functional civic space with canopy shelters, enhanced pedestrian linkages, accessibility and public conveniences (including changing facilities).
The unsightly façade of the Ballybofey Shopping Centre will also be enhancement to make them more attractive. And, the site to the rear of the centre will be developed as a multi-storey car park.Tags:
