HRA PLANNING is delighted to have been shortlisted for the prestigious 2015 ‘Property Industry Excellence Awards’ for their preparation of the Shannon Foynes Port Company’s strategic economic and physical masterplan – ‘Vision 2041’
The Nomination falls under the ‘Innovation and Economic Planning Award’ for projects that best apply National spatial planing policy in the development of initiatives that stimulated economic development and employment at local or regional level.
HRA PLANNING Director Mary Hughes explains that:
“this nomination is a reflection of the ability of HRA PLANNING to provide integrated economic, spatial and environmental planning. Our approach delivers a port development strategy that balances the physical and economic development of the port, with spatial landuse planning policy and environmental management”.
Since its publication, the ‘Vision 2041’ Masterplan, has been adopted into statutory landuse planning policy by the local planning authority and it has supported a successful application in securing €3million European Ten T funding for port related infrastructure.
