Waterford Chamber has welcomed the announcement by Waterford Council that they have granted planning for the North Quays development.

According to Gerald Hurley, CEO Waterford Chamber, “This is a very large piece of the jigsaw and it is an important milestone in progressing the development.

“We are all aware that a vibrant city centre is key is economic growth and the development of our city and the North Quays will be an integral part of that. It will ensure modern riverside accommodation and Grade A office space catering for cutting edge businesses, which will all contribute significantly to attracting our young professionals back to Waterford.

“With a catchment of over 604,000 people within a one hour drive time, the North Quays will be a catalyst for urban regeneration within the region and this is very much in line with the new programme for Government.

“Job creation has to be at the core of everything when we talk of economic development and the North Quays will create substantial job opportunities in the coming years.

“This development will be a game changer for Waterford and the region and we now need Government to deliver on their promise and release the remainder of the funding to the infrastructural needs can be met at the earliest opportunity. We will continue to make representation in this regard, but for the time being, we would like to thank Falcon Malls Real Estate, Waterford Council, Fewer Harrington & Partners and all other stakeholders for their commitment to this important project.”
