AboutThe Project

After joining The Planning Partnership in 2011, Wessel retained the ‘partnership’ approach to the development planning process with primary landowners on which the Cork Science and Innovation Park is to be located at Curraheen, Co. Cork.

By utilising his experience gained in the re-development of the Grangegorman Site in Dublin for the purposes of health, education, arts/cultural/recreation facilities and high quality public spaces, Wessel provides ongoing strategic development advice (physical, socio-economic and environmental) to The Planning Partnership’s primary landowner clients, enhancing the suitable development potential of their lands at this location.

The Cork Science and Innovation Park is to be delivered as part of the National Employment Strategy which will provide business support and technology transfer, benefitting from formal and operational links with centres of knowledge creation such as universities, higher education institutes and research organisations.

The Cork Science and Innovation Park Framework Masterplan 2011 was prepared by Cork County Council and Mott McDonald Ireland is currently in the process of delivering the infrastructure package.
