Hebron Road Urban Design Framework Strategy

It is an objective of the Kilkenny City and Environs Development Plan 2014 - 2020, to prepare an Urban Design Framework Strategy for Hebron Road, one of the City’s key approach routes.  The strategy will first look at the essential strengths and weaknesses of the Hebron Road area.  Learning from these and best practice, the strategy will seek to develop a robust spatial framework and a set of guidelines to guide the future development and enhancement of the Hebron Road area.  The Strategy will address in particular, improvements to the road and public spaces and the development of key areas and sites on Hebron Road by providing specific guidance for the development of the urban form and the public realm.  The aim is to guide the regeneration and future development of the area as one of the critical approach routes into Kilkenny City.


The Study area is outlined in red on the attached map and includes the Hebron road and the road leading to Bishop Birch Place. The Hebron Road, the L2627, runs from the Hebron Road roundabout at its western end at its junction with the N10, as far east as the MacDonagh Junction roundabout. This area includes for a mix of land use zonings including existing residential; mixed use; general business; recreation, amenity and open space and community facilities. Hebron Industrial estate is located along the southern side of Hebron Road, between the N10 ringroad and Nowlan Park roundabout. The area also includes Nowlan Park GAA grounds, O’Loughlin Gaels GAA grounds, St Kieran’s cemetery and a number of housing developments.


The road leading to Bishop Birch Place, L6616-5, is accessed off of the Hebron road. It is zoned primarily ‘mixed use’ and also includes ‘industrial’ and ‘existing residential’ also.  This road includes uses such as Aldi discount store, car sales, furniture sales warehouse, fuel depot.
