Have you ever wondered what Clonakilty looks like in 3D? Well now’s your chance. On Sunday, November 19 from 9am until 1.30pm after months of painting and constructing models, the town of Clonakilty will come to life in a large three-dimensional model. But I hear you say we have Clonakilty in 3D at the Model Railway Village. However this model will give you the chance to have your say in ‘Planning Our Town for Our Future’.

The model will be on tour around Clonakilty to community groups and schools for the month of November. It will also be available for a public drop in the Parish Centre and furthermore individuals can also have their say through an on-line platform called Dialogue.

The public drop in session will be held in the Parish Centre on November 19 and will be a great opportunity to come along, have a cup of tea, meet your neighbours and place suggestion cards on the model indicating what you want to see happen and where (eg parking, planting etc) in the Clonakilty area. Every input will be recorded and will make a real difference. Inputs are anonymous.

The suggestions will be sorted and prioritised to establish an action plan, which will be followed up by working groups. One such working group is the group co-ordinating the event who are working towards the establishment of a Community Resource Centre in Clonakilty. This group would love to hear what activities and supports you would like to see in the proposed centre.  Other suggestions will be dealt with by appropriate working groups (Employment and Training, Environment, Health etc).

Drop in between 9am and 1.30pm on Sunday, November 19 to the Parish Centre on Western Road, Clonakilty to have your say and to help shape the plan. Only you know what your area is like and what is needed in the future. If you cannot attend the public session but want to give us your views please do so on-line through westcork.dialogue-app.com.

For further information or to book a session with your school or community group, please contact Helen on 087-9872665 or email Clonakiltyresourcecentre@gmail.com.
