Tallaght Town Centre Local Area Plan (Adopted 2006, extended 2011)

The Tallaght Town Centre Masterplan was adopted in October 2006 in order to facilitate the development of Tallaght Town Centre as a vibrant sustainable town centre. One of the main elements throughout the Plan is in providing an attractive built environment focused on creating a place where people can be proud of and where people want to be. The Tallaght Town Centre LAP provides a vision and a set of policies and approaches for interventions in the physical environment, with a clear mechanism for their delivery.
The Tallaght Town Centre Area is a large geographical area characterised by a number of distinctive quarters.  Due to the range of distinctive local characteristics between areas in the town centre area, the LAP Masterplan divides the area up into 15 areas or precincts.  A series of local framework plans have been developed in the LAP based on the local characteristics of each precinct.
