Waterford Cultural Quarter

What is the Waterford Cultural Quarter (WCQ) Plan
This draft document provides an outline plan for the proposed Waterford Cultural Quarter (WCQ). It is commissioned by Waterford City and County Council (WCCC) with a view to exploring the potential for a WCQ which will play a transformative role for the O’Connell St district of the city and for the capacity, confidence and sustainable growth of the cultural and creative sectors of the city and region. In doing so, it will play a vital development role for Waterford city centre, nurturing and attracting distinctive cultural and creative production and generating a dynamic cultural life for the area that enhances the city’s retail and tourism offering.

NOTE: The Cultural Quarter Plan was issued for public consultation on 10th October 2017. It is available in the Waterford Libraries and below.
