Wexford County Council has confirmed that the long-awaited modernisation of Enniscorthy Municipal District Offices in Market Square Enniscorthy is finally to get under way, with staff vacating the Market Square offices later this week and moving to the recently renovated Enniscorthy Courthouse just up the street, for the duration for the contract works.
Newly appointed District Administrator Ger Mackey promises it will be “Business as Usual” at the Courthouse from 9.00am Tuesday 24 September, with the Market Square offices closing at 4pm this Friday 20 September and remaining closed on Monday 23 September to allow the transfer of services to take place.
“The Market Square building has not undergone any significant investment for quite some time and as a result, it lacks the modern facilities and services expected in a public services building today” said Mr. Mackey. “Wexford County Council is investing approximately one million euro in a major refurbishment programme to modernise the building. The public will be able to enjoy much improved public facilities, including measures to improve privacy for those visiting the building, disabled access to floors above ground level, works to weather proof the building and a significant upgrade of the telecommunications system.
These much-needed refurbishment works will help ensure this iconic building reaches its full potential, not only in terms of improved public access to Council services in the Enniscorthy District for many years to come, but also in contributing to a rejuvenation of Enniscorthy’s Market Square and surrounding areas”, said Mr. Mackey.
