Today, Friday November 17th is the last day to submit “your vision” for the Royal Hotel site in Boyle Town centre.
As of last night (Thursday), 56 submissions had been received by Roscommon County Council.
The local authority recently commenced a consultation process with members of the public on the future of the old Royal Hotel site in Boyle.
The local authority are requesting people to forward a submission on “your vision for the site”.
According to the Council “This key town centre site is situated on the northern bank of the Boyle River. Roscommon County Council believe it is deserving of a central role in the future life of the town of Boyle. The building had been used as a hotel until approximately a decade ago when the Royal Hotel ceased trading. The building has lain vacant since then and its condition has deteriorated significantly since closure. Roscommon County Council has purchased the Royal Hotel Site and now wishes to consult with the people of Boyle and open discussion on practical, constructive and sustainable solutions for the future use of this site. What is your vision for the site?”
“The site is zoned for ‘Core Town Centre’ uses in the current Boyle Local Area Plan. We have learned that the most successful town centre development offers, not just one, but a rich variety of related and complementary uses which attract and sustain town centre communities. ”
Submission can be made here through their website Roscommoncoco.ie and must be with the Council by Friday November 17th
The Council say that “Once all submissions have been reviewed by Roscommon County Councils Economic Development Team, a report will be prepared for the Elected Members of Roscommon County Council as required by Planning Law. The findings will then be shared with the members of Boyle Town Team.”
