Westmeath County Council, with the support of the Rural Regeneration and Development Fund is committed to the regeneration of the town-centre core of Kinnegad.  The multi-annual programme, with an estimated total project cost in excess of €8.5million, will stimulate the regeneration of Kinnegad. 

Why we are consulting

Feedback is being sought from the whole community.   We want to ensure that the broadest spectrum of views are captured. A shared vision will help build a robust and sustainable blueprint for the regeneration of Kinnegad.  Embedding a sense of ownership and pride of place within the community is a key objective of the programme.

The project objectives are:

  1. to address existing serious social infrastructure provision deficit to an increasing population at Kinnegad.
  2. to establish a new civic space addressing the new community Library.
  3. to increase the footfall within the town centre.

The programme comprises 3 distinct projects:

  1. the refurbishment and extension of the old National School and Principals House on Main Street and the provision of a Community Library, Education and Training Centre at that site.
  2. the provision of Community Facilities and a Town Park at the former Community Centre and surrounding lands on the Athlone Road.
  3. the provision of enhanced Public Realm to integrate the new Community Library into the street.

This consultation process will directly inform the concept designs for Item 2 above the Community Facilities and Town Park.  Submissions can be made from the publication of the survey until the close of the survey which is 5:00pm on Friday 29th October 2021.
