MORES are delighted with the grant of permission from An Board Pleanála for the Extension and Enhancement of the Established Racecourse Facilities at Punchestown Racecourse together with associated Extraction and Continuation of previously permitted Restoration Works at Walshestown. Established in 1824 and widely regarded as Ireland’s premier racetrack with the title of Ireland’s Racecourse of the Year awarded in 2018, this authorisation opens up the future opportunities for this key venue in the Irish landscape.
The Restoration works will also recreate the former landscape profile adjoining the racetrack, providing usable land with amenity values along with habitat creation and enhancement providing areas to support a wide variety of wildlife.
MORES prepared the multidisciplinary Environmental Impact Assessment Report, Appropriate Assessment, and provided hands-on input into the truly environmentally lead design. It was a privilege for MOR to work on this project and we are looking forward to the next phase of works.
