Planning consent for the development of two modern office buildings (circa. 9,100m2) at Enniscorthy Technology Park has been granted, including one proposed to accommodate the United Nations NZEB Training Centre of Excellence, to be developed initially by Wexford County Council in collaboration with the Waterford Wexford Educational Training Board with designation from the UN and the Irish Government and Climate Action funding expected to follow.
This information is contained in the Enniscorthy Technology Park report from the Wexford County Council Special Projects Office revealed at today’s (Monday) Enniscorthy Municipal District Council meeting held by Microsoft Teams to facilitate the Level 5 Coronavirus restrictions.
The Enniscorthy Technology Park – Phase 1 works to open up the three roadside sites for development was substantially completed in October 2019. The snagging is due to be completed by end of January 2021.
Work on site to develop the first building is underway.
The Phase 2 works, to open up the remaining sites at the Park for development, will take place when sufficient interest is secured in developing the remaining plots.
The first sod turning ceremony took place in August 2018 at Enniscorthy Business and Technology Park which is a €2.5 million project under development beside the River Slaney on a 35-acre site at Killagoley on what was once part of the farm land attached to St. Senan’s Hospital.
