Chief operating officer Michael Ahern said: “A key consideration throughout all stages of the Masterpan has been to ensure the City and the region benefit from the opportunities the project will create.

“We’re listening to and working with our neighbours and the wider community, and have already held a number of successful events with various user groups.

“Consultations are an excellent way for members of the public to speak to the team behind the project, ask questions and give feedback which will help to shape the scheme.”
