Public Consultation regarding Hope Castle 19thJuly
PUBLIC CONSULTATION - HOPE CASTLE & STABLE BUILDINGS/ANNEXE LOUGH MUCKNO – FUTURE DEVELOPMENT
Wednesday, 19th July from 4-7pm
The Lough Muckno site is a significant one, with its historic landscaped parklands and culturally important buildings - in particular, Hope Castle and the Stable Buildings/Annexe that are now in disrepair, having been previously used for a variety of purposes. The broader site also has a well-deserved reputation as a leisure amenity that is much used and appreciated by the local community.
In this context, Monaghan County Council has commissioned CHL Consulting Ltd and Howley Hayes Conservation Architects to assess the potential to redevelop and find sustainable uses for both Hope Castle and the Annexe/Stable Buildings. The work relates only to the named buildings and not to the broader parkland, although the context of the historic landscape will be taken into account as part of the review.
As part of the work, we are inviting you, as members of the local community, to share your opinions with regard to the buildings. If you would like to contribute your ideas to the project, there are two ways in which you can do so. Firstly, the short questionnaire (see below linkor attached document) can be completed and returned directly to CHL Consultants (contact details are on the form) anytime up to the 4th August 2017.
Alternatively, CHL Consultants in conjunction with Monaghan County Council will be available for an Open Session at the Muckno Gate Lodge on Wednesday, 19th July, between 4.00pm and 7.00pm, where you can drop in, collect a copy of the questionnaire and/or talk to us directly. We appreciate your participation on this important project.
Monaghan County Council have recently installed a new permanent webcam overlooking the Diamond area in Monaghan Town. Live footage from the webcam can be viewed via our website at the following link: https://monaghan.ie/monaghan-web-cam/
As I hope you agree, the Diamond looks spectacular and as you can see preparations are well underway for the annual Country Music Festival taking place this weekend in the town. Feel free to share this link with all your friends and family especially those aboard so that they can see a little piece of home, or even for you just to keep an eye on the festival from the comfort of your own armchair!
We will also be advertising this link via our Social Media outlet (e.g. Facebook and Twitter) so likes, share and re-tweets would be greatly appreciated.
For Data Protection reasons this is just a live stream and is not being recorded, no sound is available but you can have great fun guessing what song is being played at the Country Music Festival by the pace and rhythm of the jivers! 07 2017
