An urban village should be formed at Ballyboden.
The Ballydoden Village Plan should be reintroduced and updated.
"It is an objective of the Village plan to combine the proposed road improvements with the potential for Ballyboden to develop as a village" - this objective should be brought into the new county development plan.
The Augustinians site should be developed with land uses and public space at an appropriate scale to front Taylors Lane to allow a village focal point or 'main street' to form at the existing cluster of services at Costcutter.
Better integration should be encouraged between both sides of the street, with an enhanced public realm and improved pedestrian facilities to allow a 'main street' or village focal point to emerge at this cluster.
