Give your opinion
Your opinions on the refurbishment of St. Joseph’s Convent, ancillary buildings and grounds for use as a multipurpose community/enterprise/learning space are needed. Offaly County Council in partnership with An Síolán held a Public Open Day last Friday in St. Joseph’s Convent, Ferbane, Co. Offaly. See below to give your views on how you would like to see the building and surrounds develop.
A multipurpose space for Ferbane
Chief Executive of Offaly County Council, Anna Marie Delaney, who was in attendance at the open day, said “the community of Ferbane are thoroughly invested in this project and it will be transformational for Ferbane Town and the community and I am confident this will be an exemplar project for the County of Offaly going forward”. The refurbishment of St. Joseph’s Convent maybe put to use as a multipurpose community/enterprise/learning space in Ferbane, Co. Offaly. This will ensure that the local knowledge informs the uses and opportunities for the entire property over the coming years.
Online survey for Ferbane
A Design Team will be appointed to undertake all necessary analysis of the community information gathered at the open day which will assist in the design process over the coming months. Further public consultations will take place throughout the design process.
For those unable to attend the in-person event, an online survey is still available by visiting St. Joseph’s Convent, Ferbane (closing date for online survey will be 21st April, 2023)
