The Sandy Quarter is an exciting new development project that aims to transform the heart of Galway. It is a mixed-use development that will include new homes, an urban park, commercial and community space. The project is being developed by the LDA, a state agency responsible for unlocking the potential of underutilized state lands.

During the six-week consultation period, the LDA is inviting all interested parties to share their views. This is an opportunity for the community to have their say on the development of The Sandy Quarter.

If you would like to participate in the consultation, you can get in touch with the LDA via email at

In addition to the email consultation, the LDA will be holding a Public Drop-in Clinic at Maldron Hotel Sandy Road. The clinic is an opportunity for members of the public to speak directly with members of the LDA team about the project. Please keep an eye on the website HERE for updates on the times of the clinic.

The LDA will also be hosting key meetings with local elected representatives, local organizations, and stakeholder groups. If you would like to attend a meeting or chat with the LDA Consultation Team, please get in touch by phone or email to arrange a date.
