ILTP provide a wide range of expertise and skills in the planning and assessment of land uses with regards to the appropriate development and roll out of infrastructure.  The efficient use of land is vital in ensuring benefit for the wider economy and population as well as the protection of the environment. In order to do this the integration of land use and transportation is crucial. ILTP because of their particular expertise in Planning and Transportation are ideally placed to maximise these benefits.

ILTP have considerable experience in Land Use Planning, particularly in areas experiencing significant changes in the provision of transport infrastructure.

Masterplans / Integrated Area Plans

ILTP have either individually or as part of a project team prepared Masterplans for areas of land significantly affected by major transport infrastructure investments. These Masterplans identify and maximise the opportunities to be derived from transport upgrades and act as a guide for development in the area. One such Masterplan was prepared for lands adjacent to the Southern Relief Road in Limerick, which provides a tunnel underneath the River Shannon.

County Development Plan / LAP Submissions

County Development Plans and Local Area Plans (LAP) are key land-use policy documents. The preparation of these Plans, which in the case of County Development Plans must be done every 6 years allows an opportunity for individuals and organisations to influence land-use policy and zonings through the making of such submissions. ILTP have prepared a large number of such submissions to Local Authorities throughout Ireland. These have in many cases directly influenced Development Plans and led to extensive areas of land being re-zoned.

Integrated Framework Plan, Land Use, Urban Design & Transport Report (IFPLUT)

Local Authorities have a statutory obligation to prepare Development Plans. ILTP have assisted Local Authorities prepare these Development Plans and Local Area Plans (LAP) through the undertaking of Integrated Framework Land Use, Urban Design & Transport Reports. These reports provide a coherent strategy that integrates land use and transport. This is particularly important in areas experiencing significant changes in transport infrastructural provision. ILTP have prepared a number of such IFPLUT documents including one for Navan where the opening of the M3 and the Dublin – Navan rail line will significantly affect transport and land use within the town.

Development Briefs

ILTP prepare development briefs for sites of varying sizes throughout the country. These development briefs can elucidate and exemplify plan policies, thereby giving greater certainty to all those involved in the design and development process regarding what would constitute appropriate development in a partiuclar site.  A development briefs  prepared by ILTP will therefore provide detailed guidance on matters including the interpretation of policy, and the principles of design, layout and landscaping in relation to sites that, and in particular issues pertaining to accessing of the site.
