Swords Theatre is becoming a reality.
I am delighted to report that Fingal County Council is to seek to appoint a project management services team to oversee the delivery of projects within the multi-million euro Swords Cultural Quarter (SCQ) development.
Local Councillor, Joe Newman is delighted to inform Swords residents that Fingal County Council is to seek to appoint a project management services team to oversee the delivery of projects within the multi-million euro Swords Cultural Quarter (SCQ) development.
The Swords Cultural Quarter will boast the public theatre that was proposed by Councillor Newman along with a new library that will include an art exhibition space adjacent to County Hall, as well as a new cultural quarter on North Street/Main Street. Significant landscaping in the park and town will also be undertaken.
Newman went on to say, considerable preparatory work has already been undertaken around Swords Castle and the site of the Cultural Quarter. Works have already been tendered and an appointment is imminent in relation to site investigation on the proposed site of the main cultural centre building on the existing carpark at Seatown Road/ North Street. The results of this testing will inform the design process.
Works is also ongoing in relation to conservation works at Swords Castle and is due for completion in May. A consent submission has been prepared for the National Monuments Service to allow for works to facilitate demolition of some derelict buildings on North Street which block views of the Castle.
Councillor Newman believes that this amenity will give Swords residents, both adults and children alike a wonderful space to both relax and enjoy the culture of their town. It will be a place in the town that will give them a great sense of pride.
