Re: Re: what’s going up in Cobh
Reading the prelim 2006 census: http://www.cso.ie/census/documents/2006PreliminaryReport.pdf
It would appear Cobh has in 2006 :
Cobh Urban pop of : 6,517 down 3.7% on the 2002 census
Cobh Rural pop of : 6,370 up 38.10 % on the 2002 census
OVERALL 12,887 up 34.40% on 2002
With another possible 2800 houses to come…. Can recall a railway report by Faber Maunsell from Oct 2004 mentioning Cobhs population would increase by 23% to 2020…..
Time for a re-think ……as i hope the Rail/roads/services will be able to cope…
