• Convenience Shop • Pharmacy/Doctor’s Surgery/ Dentist Surgery • Post Office/ Bank • Café/ Restaurant/ Bar • Library • Public Transport Node (Train Station/ Bus Stop) • National School/Secondary School

A visit will be undertaken of each of the three towns to establish the quality of the walking/ cycling and public transport networks serving each town to identify the required infrastructural upgrades needed. After establishing the location of each of the above services, an accessibility model using GIS will be undertaken to define the accessibility to each of the above services based on the following criteria: • 40 minute public transport journey (approximately 20 kilometres), the 40-minute journey time includes walking time between public transport stops. The results of the accessibility assessment will identify for each of the three towns which set of services are within the required accessibility criteria and outline recommendations on the infrastructure required to support safe walking and cycling, on improved permeability, on the provision of additional public transport services and the provision of new community services.
