We are delighted to be appointed by Waterford City & County Council to restore a series of key buildings in the centre of Cappoquin which form part of an ambitious plan by the council to re-generate this beautiful town. Situated in rural West Waterford, Cappoquin is a town of 700 inhabitants which developed at an important crossing point on the river Blackwater. The town, like so many, has lost its traditional industrial base and needs to reinvent itself. Cappoquin is at a picturesque location on a bend in the river, at the foothills of the Knockmealdown Mountains. Much of the town’s architecture is eighteenth and nineteenth century construction, in fact the town’s essential character has not changed dramatically from this time and it retains its aesthetic qualities of this setting. However, over a number of decades as town centre activities have ceased, the physical town centre has eroded, now suffering vacancy and dereliction at a number of key strategic sites.
Waterford City & County Council working in association with local community development partners have recently commenced a substantial regeneration programme in and around the town centre.
