Town Centre First Plan for Roscrea

O’Mahony Pike consultants were appointed by Tipperary County Council to support the Town Team and the Council to prepare the new Town Centre First Plan for Roscrea. Following six months of background research, public engagements, surveys, workshops and interviews, the process is now complete. The Plan presents a new vision for Roscrea and sets how the town centre can be transformed into a dynamic meeting place with a strong economic role by identifying potential projects and actions to create a vibrant town centre.

The Plan is now available to view at the bottom of this webpage along with supplementary information prepared as part of the plan as follows;

  • Roscrea Town Centre First Plan
  • Pubic Consultation Report
  • Planning Baseline Report (Health Check of the Town)
  • Public Realm Strategy
  • Case Studies

Any queries in relation to the plan can be directed to Áine McCarthy   -

National Town Centre First Policy

Our Rural Future, the Government’s Rural Development Policy outlines a vision to support the regeneration and development of rural towns and villages to contribute to local and national economic recovery, and to enable people to live and work in a vibrant environment. The Town Centre First policy launched in February 2022 is central to this vision.

Town Centre First represents a new approach to the development of our towns where local communities and local businesses can be central to reimagining their own towns and planning their own futures. Every town is different. Each town is unique and requires unique solutions to the challenges and opportunities they face.
