On Thursday September 12th Mayor Vicki Casserly will officially launch on public display, the Proposed Draft Tallaght Town Centre Local Area Plan.  The Plan will guide the future growth of Tallaght over the next 6 years and beyond.  A six week public consultation period on the Draft Plan, will take place between Thursday 12th September until Thursday 24th October 2019.  More information is available at the consultation portal website: consult.sdublincoco.ie on the Draft Plan.


Building on Tallaght’s unique selling points, it has emerged over the past three decades as a centre of civic focus, playing host to a number of major institutions including Tallaght Hospital, Technological University Dublin/ Tallaght Campus- (TUD/TC), South Dublin County Council headquarters, Tallaght Stadium and the head office of the Dublin and Dun Laoghaire Education and Training Board (formerly VEC). This area is also a thriving economic area and the local area plan seeks to reinforce Tallaght’s position as an employment and enterprise destination of regional significance.
