Tipperary County Council is preparing a new Local Area Plan for Thurles, which will set out the land use strategy for the town to ensure the town can grow, support employment and homes and can do so sustainably and successfully.

The Council is inviting submissions from the public to identify priorities and help shape the future development of the town. This stage represents the ‘issues’ stage before a draft of the local area plan is published. An Issues Paper has been produced to help inform submissions and is available on this webpage.

The Issues Paper sets out:

  • Why we are preparing a Local Area Plan
  • The process of adopting the Local Area Plan
  • Key questions for the local community in shaping the Plan
  • How you can get involved in making the Plan
