South Dublin Street and Backlands Regeneration Scheme

 South Dublin Street and Backlands Regeneration Scheme

South Dublin Street & Backlands Regeneration Scheme, Monaghan Town Centre


Monaghan County Council has appointed design consultants RPS Consulting Engineers to develop detailed urban regeneration proposals for the South Dublin Street and Backlands Regeneration Project in Monaghan Town Centre.  This project develops the regeneration principles established through the Dublin Street and Backlands Regeneration Plan 2017 and the County Development Plan 2019-2025.

RPS has developed design proposals for infrastructure development and public realm improvements on lands at 8 – 14 Dublin Street, lands to the rear of 1-9 The Diamond and 1-26 Dublin Street, incorporating the Courthouse car park and Lower Courthouse car park.

These design proposals include the creation of new streets, junctions, civic spaces, cycle paths, pedestrian linkages, and high quality public realm (including street furniture, lighting, boundary treatments, landscape planting, cycle parking, high quality surfacing and signage), and all other associated works.

The aim is to create a new high-quality scheme to attract new town centre development, and form part of a new Dublin Street Quarter.  The project is supported by the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund.

You can view the draft design proposals using the links below.
