Village green works in Malahide making ‘significant’ progress

by Sylvia Pownall

Fingal County Council has welcomed the significant progress on the Village Green Improvement Works project in Malahide, which is expected to be completed before the end of the year.

The project led by the council’s Parks and Green Infrastructure Division is set to re-invigorate and improve the quality of the village green and to enhance the open space as an area to visit and enjoy. 

The works have been undertaken by Malahide-based company Peter O’Brien & Sons Landscaping Ltd, which was awarded the contract following the conclusion of a competitive tender process.

The scheme involves a series of public realm improvements, including the installation of new paving, street furniture, re-contouring the open space as well as planting.

Senior Parks Superintendent Kevin Halpenny said: “The involvement of the local community in the planning and design process for the redevelopment of The Green is a great example of the benefits of local input into public realm projects.

“The reimagined new space will be a wonderful amenity for the local community to enjoy.”
