The Night Time Economy refers to the diverse social, cultural and economic activity occurring during specified evening and night time hours.
It balances the needs of the inter related communities that co exist to bring it to life and create a special sense of shared place
Following the publication of the NTE Taskforce Report, Kilkenny City was successful in being designated as one of nine pilot towns and cities in the country that will prepare and implement an action plan setting out a range of interventions to support the coordinated development of our night time economy. A Night Time Economy Advisor has been appointed and dedicated stakeholder forum of cross sectoral and community interests has been formed to oversee and implement the plan.
This first phase of our stakeholder engagement comprises a short online survey in the form of a questionnaire. This survey is an opportunity for businesses and organisations in the city to provide their feedback on the challenges and opportunities there are to realise our ambition to develop Kilkenny City as the foremost evening and night time destination which can offer a sustainable vibrant, cultural and diverse experience. The feedback provided will form the basis for the action plan and will allow us to focus on the key priorities.
The survey will be open for completion for three weeks from Monday 15th Jan to Friday 2nd February.
Many thanks in advance for your participation.
