Those interested in tendering for this work should note that the closing date is 2nd of February. Here's what the purpose of this Development Strategy & Urban Design Framework Plan for Dundalk Town Centre, Co Louth is meant to be:
The principle purpose of the Development Strategy and the Urban Design Framework Plan is to generate a strategic vision for the future sustainable development of Dundalk which promotes the regeneration, improvement and redevelopment, where appropriate, of the historic town centre as well as providing an urban design framework plan for the existing town centre and town centre expansion area which promotes development of the town whilst respecting historic patterns, scale and character of the existing townscape. In providing an overall design framework to guide future development in a planned and co-coordinated manner it is envisaged that the Strategy will also incorporate a shop front design guide which will encourage the provision of high quality and, where appropriate, creatively designed and/or architecturally/historically appropriate shop fronts. The Development Strategy and the Urban Design Framework Plan should also consider how other peripheral town centre areas may integrate and contribute towards the proposed strategy.
