29/10/21 - Ramelton Re-Imagined


Donegal County Council’s Regeneration & Development Team in conjunction with BDP is pleased to announce the opening of an informal public consultation to hear the views of the local community on the preliminary designs for the Ramelton Public Realm Enhancement Scheme ‘Ramelton


Re-Imagined’. This scheme is funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development through the Rural Regeneration and Development Fund. 


The scheme will take a sensitive approach to creating a series of enlivened public spaces connected by a walkable continuous path that wraps around the historic town core.


The preliminary/ emerging designs consist of:

  1. Transforming Gamble’s square into a key Gateway entering the historic centre and a flexible market and events location with increased space for people.
  2. Creating new road alignment at Market Cross to provide a wider footway and a crossing for a better and safer pedestrian experience.
  3. Establishing ‘The Bing’ as a showcase bio-diverse, multi- terraced garden, events and play experience individual to Ramelton and accessible to all users.
  4. The creation of a high quality public space along the Quays reflecting Ramelton’s geographical and cultural heritage. New paving and street furniture will provide a continuous pedestrian experience linking to the rest of the town and promote trading and activities along the building edge.
  5. Connecting Market Square by a new footpath and crossing to the series of walkable public spaces and re-establishing it as an identifiable public space for activities.


Have your say on these emerging designs! Come and talk to the designers at a socially distanced meet which will take place on Wednesday the 3rd of November from 3.30 pm to 7.30 pm at Sip ‘n’ Slice on the Shore Road Ramelton.
