The Process

Government initiatives including the National Planning Framework and Housing for All challenge
planners to redefine and re-imagine our urban towns and cities as places for new
communities and vibrant economies. The team at MacCabe Durney Barnes is actively involved
in wide range of projects that are leading the field in this sector.

    assessments and town regeneration plans
  • Our economic and viability analysis underpins important design decisions and the strategic and local levels. We have prepared masterplan viability assessments in Kilkenny and Shannon, Co. Clare, Dun Laoghaire Harbour and Sligo.
