Options Appraisal for Former Railway Yard
OPTIONS APPRAISAL - FOR FORMER RAILWAY YARD, COOKSTOWN
Cookstown District Council had over a period of time acquired 5 adjoining sections of land around the old Railway Station/Yard. This was a mixture of depots, listed buildings, grass area and new recycling centre. Little commercial interest had been shown and the Council sought out McGarry Consulting’s expertise on how it could maximise the options open to it & create a positive return over a 10 year period.
Other photos of the site are below. McGarry Consulting had to investigate potential demand (commercial, public, social/community), site restrictions (e.g. existing recycling centre, slopes, access, former uses, neighbouring land uses), possible options, key determining factors, and how best the land could meet wider town development needs.
