Re: Re: Developments in Cork
OUTLINE plans for a Silicon Valley-style innovation and research campus on the outskirts of Cork city will go on display next week.
People have been invited to comment on and help shape the development of the countryâ€™s first science park which has the potential to create up to 6,000 jobs.
The Cork Science and Innovation Park, which analysts say will contribute about e450 million annually to the local economy, will be built on a 150-acre site at Curraheen.
County manager Martin Riordan has described it as a “defining project for Cork”.
However, before work can start, there must be a variation to the Carrigaline electoral area plan, which governs the site, and a subsequent variation to the County Development Plan 2009 which was adopted recently.
