The mini- metropolis: plans for Dundalk and Newry

Plans are being drawn up to develop Dundalk and Newry as a cross-Border “mini-metropolis” with the aim of ensuring that the two towns are not eclipsed by the accelerating growth and influence of Dublin and Belfast. The concept of a “third city” half-way between them is being put forward as a way of liberating the region from “negative attributes of its historic and political legacy,” according to Louise Browne, of Colin Buchanan planning consultants. She told the Irish Planning Institute’s annual conference in Sligo yesterday that the collaborative project is being advanced by Newry and Mourne District Council, Louth County Council and Dundalk Town Council.

Slight geographical bias in the form of landscape features mitigates against this happening unless one wishes to use the West Midlands in the UK as a beacon of planning enlightenment. 😮
