    Descriptive info: General.. Questions and Answers.. Why is there so much development in the centre of Tallaght?.. Most of the development both in the recent past and at present has resulted from an Integrated Area Plan (IAP) and Tax Incentive policies dating back to the late 1990 s which were intended to attract investment to Tallaght Town Centre.. Current and proposed developments in Tallaght Town Centre are at medium to higher densities to ensure the most efficient use of zoned and serviced land, to provide a more varied range of uses as outlined in the Tallaght Town Centre Local Area Plan 2006.. In particular residential development with varied dwelling types and sizes has been encouraged in Tallaght, in order to optimise use of existing services, facilities and infrastructure and to encourage more sustainable commuting patters and facilitate improved public transport.. These developments are fully in accordance with sustainable planning policies as set out in the National Spatial Strategy (2002), the Regional Planning Guidelines for the Greater Dublin Area 2004-2010 and the Residential Density Guidelines (1999).. How many apartments are being built?.. There are approximately 2,500 residential units built or under construction in the Tallaght Town Centre area, the majority of which are apartments.. These apartments (all with the required crèche spaces) have been permitted in tandem with a significant amount of other town centre type development such as shopping (large and small units), employment (offices etc.. ), leisure (cafes/restaurants, leisure centre with swimming pool etc.. ).. What type and size of apartments are they?.. The types of apartments built to date in the Town Centre varying from one to three bedroom apartments with sizes ranging from a minimum floor area of 45sq.. m for one bedroom apartments to a minimum of 85sq.. m for a three bedroom apartment.. The standard of residential units (apartments) built in Tallaght is high and compares extremely well to similar tax incentive schemes elsewhere.. The adoption of the Tallaght Town Centre Local Area Plan in 2006, introduced new family friendly standards for apartments, seeking to build on the progress to date and raise the bar even further by insisting on.. A requirement for an on site concierge/caretaker/security presence with dedicated accommodation for future apartment developments over 150 units in size.. A requirement for increased minimum floor areas for apartments and duplexes,.. A requirement for a minimum average floorspace for apartments and duplexes,.. 3-4 storey units have their own private entrance,.. the provision of a hierarchy of managed children s play facilities in all new residential developments of 25 or more apartment or duplex units.. CCTV in addition to concierge/security unit as a requirement for developments over 150 units.. A requirement for a utility room of at least 2.. 9sq.. m.. approx.. (31sq.. ft.. ) to accommodate two appliances and a drying area in all dwelling units of 2 bedrooms or more.. Drying area may be internal (must adjoin an external wall for ventilation) or external (must be screened by opaque glass or wintergarden).. Are there too many Section 23 apartment s being built in the Town Centre?.. Section 23 development in Tallaght has resulted from the Urban Renewal Integrated Area Plan and ficsal policies introduced in the late 1990 s.. Section 23 apartments are those, where investors in addition to owner occupiers, can benefit from available tax incentives.. The purpose of the IAP was to address the physical, economic, social and environmental regeneration of the Town Centre and in adjoining disadvantaged residential areas.. The designation of key sites for such investment has to date attracted a substantial amount of much needed investment to the Town Centre and surrounding area.. The provision of significant apartment development in the Town Centre provides the necessary accommodation mix to compliment the family type accommodation that predominated in the surrounding neighbourhoods.. While providing suitable rented accommodation for people who work or study in Tallaght such as Hospital workers and students in the Institute of Technology in Tallaght, it also reduces pressure in the surrounding neighbourhoods for rented accommodation.. In addition, the apartments provide a choice for owner occupiers who favor a Town Centre location and will also add considerably to the improved urban ambience and the economic sustainability of facilities in the area.. It is intended that the quality standards now required for residential development, when combined with an improved image of Tallaght as a place to live and work, will attract owner-occupiers to future schemes, as tax incentives will no longer be available.. The Tallaght Town Centre Local Area Plan has a requirement for 60% owner occupancy.. Whilst there is an emerging aversion to investor-led development, it is a fact that investors took a risk and demonstrated confidence in Tallaght at a time when incentives were necessary.. Moreover, a supply of suitable rental accommodation is necessary to support a functioning town as part of a balanced choice of dwelling options.. In the event of a disproportionate number of Section 23 apartments being used to house residents on rental supplement, the Council will use the powers of the Social Welfare and Pensions Act 2007 to achieve a balanced tenure.. In 2004 the County Development Plan provided for a significant extension of the Town Centre zoining in Tallaght.. In October 2006, the Council adopted a Local Area Plan (LAP) for the Town Centre.. In addition to apartments, there are also a considerable number of houses being built in Tallaght.. The Kiltipper, Saggart, Fortunestown and Ballycragh/Ballycullen areas all include housing.. In fact, Tallaght is remarkable as one of the very few areas of Dublin where housing is still being constructed and is relatively affordable to many people.. What are the development opportunities  ...   future development to create a vibrant town centre and a quality identity for Tallaght.. Accessibility and Transportation.. Much has been achieved in providing improved accessibility and transport.. The Luas line and terminus has been completed.. The Town Centre LAP provides for a Luas Extension to City West Metro West Route has been identified along the Belgard Road, as well as a the provision of a Public Transport Interchange at design stage.. Better traffic management.. Quality Bus Corridors provided along the Blessington Road; Cycle lanes/facilities provided on Belgard Road, Blessington Road and Cookstown Road; Traffic Circulation Box completed on Cookstown/Towncentre Road, Greenhills Road Extension: Accessibility Action Plan implemented; Traffic Calming at the Belgard Road;.. Environmental and Amenity.. Improvements include - Shamrock Rovers grounds are under construction; major recreational and amenity facilities in Sean Walsh Park; The new Swimming Pools/Sports Complex Tallaght Leisure Centre at Jobstown Park opened; Landscaping of roundabouts on approach roads to Town Centre completed; and Tallaght Village, Urban and Village work is almost complete.. Where is the boundary of Tallaght City located and where does the Town Centre begin/end?.. The County Development Plan, adopted in 2004 introduced the designation of Tallaght as the County Town and expanded the Town Centre.. The Tallaght Town Centre Local Area Plan 2006 outlines the full extended area of the Town Centre see.. Tallaght Town Centre Masterplan Map.. What infrastructure is being provided in Tallaght to cater for the anticipated expanding population of the area?.. In the 8 District Electoral Divisions (D.. E.. D.. s) encompassing the Master Plan area and adjoining housing, population trends indicated a decrease of 12% in the period 1986 and 2002.. Decrease between 1991 and 2002 indicate a 11% decline i.. e.. 1% per annum.. Decline has been attributed to the stage of household lifecycle and reduction in household occupancy.. The tax incentives introduced in the Town Centre to generate mixed-use development has resulted in substantial construction.. Planning permission has been granted to cater for approximately 3300 new apartments in the plan area.. It is envisaged that on completion and occupancy of all permitted apartments in the plan area based on household size of 2 persons per household that the population of Tallaght will rise to.. The Town Centre is one of the final parts of an evolving jigsaw whereby the New Town of Tallaght was planned and substantially built in the 1970 s and 1980 s.. The provision of infrastructure has involved the construction of private and social housing, neighbourhood centres, the development of industrial estates, schools, churches, health facilities, library, new roads, public parks and the new town centre retail and office facilities.. While at times there has been a time lag between the settlement of the area and the provision of the full range of facilities that would be expected in a new town the size of Tallaght, almost all of the infrastructural requirements are now present including the major higher level facilities such as the 3rd level education institution, the Regional Hospital and the rapid transit routes are now present.. The Council are of the opinion that the major infrastructure and facilities are in the most part provided to cater for new developments.. The current Masterplan for Tallaght Town Centre focuses on providing good connections and accessibility, an attractive built environment and a people friendly place to be proud of.. Thus the future development of Tallaght will attempt to consolidate a vibrant, sustainable town centre where the community can avail of the highest standards of housing, employment, services and amenities.. What Transport Infrastructure is envisaged for Tallaght?.. A number of existing public transport services pass through and terminate in Tallaght.. The frequency and quality of services vary.. Many provide only a limited service, largely due to the relatively low population density around the Town Centre which cannot sustain a higher frequency service.. However, as the Town Centre grows, it will form a public transport hub and the provision of additional services will become more viable, particularly those which link Tallaght with other major centres in the Dublin region.. The.. Masterplan.. makes provision for the expansion of the existing transport network as follows:.. An improved QBC network both within and at key access points to the Town Centre along routes such as the N81 (to the west), Old Bawn Road, Belgard Road, Belgard Square North, Belgard Square West and Greenhills Road.. Ensuring that existing routes and frequencies of service are reviewed as the development of the Town Centre intensifies and to support the establishment of new and/or supplementary routes, being provided by Dublin Bus and/or an alternative bus operator.. Supporting the proposed Luas spur to Citywest and to ensure that the new line is also linked directly into the Town Centre via a Delta Junction.. Safeguarding a possible route for Metrowest to link Tallaght to the Airport via Clondalkin, Liffey Valley and Blanchardstown.. A likely route is through the centre of the Plan lands along Belgard Road.. This would link with existing LUAS services at Belgard Station and in the Town Centre.. Identify opportunities for transport hubs at the Cookstown and Belgard LUAS Stations and at a variety of locations within the Town Centre.. What areas are covered by Metro West and when will it come on stream?.. The Metro-West project is a proposed orbital line connecting the towns of Tallaght, Clondalkin, Blanchardstown and Porterstown with Dublin Airport.. It will provide a fast and frequent orbital commuter service and access to the city centre transport links.. It is anticipated that the Metro-West project will be delivered by 2014.. The lines of Metro West into Tallaght is at present proposed along the Belgard Road..
