Public and Stakeholder Engagement

In accordance with the Arterial Drainage Acts 1945 and 1995 as amended, the Office of Public Works engaged extensively with the public on the proposed Lower Lee (Cork City) Flood Relief Scheme.

Representatives from the scheme’s engineering design team, environmental consultants and the Office of Public Works met with and explained the scheme’s proposals to members of the public in City Hall, Cork in December and January 2017.

Both before and after the exhibition of the proposed scheme there has been a variety of meetings between members of the project team and public representatives, community groups, and individual property owners.
