Public Consultation open on Draft Spatial Framework for Colbert Quarter

A  Public Consultation period is currently underway on the Draft Spatial Framework  launched by the Land Development Agency (LDA) on the major urban development and rejuvenation project proposed for the Limerick City area around Colbert Station known as the Colbert Quarter. The project aims to develop new urban districts with housing, commercial space, and public spaces alongside sustainable transport options.


The Draft Spatial Framework has been developed by the LDA working with Limerick City and County Council, CIE and the HSE. It represents a blueprint for the potential transformation of this strategically significant area of Limerick City over the next twenty years. The Framework once finalised is expected to be periodically reviewed and a more detailed implementation plan will be developed in due course.


All information in relation to the project can be found at There is a  community liaison channel and your views are being sought on the Draft Spatial Framework, its vision, themes, guiding principles and the approach proposed for each of the new districts. The documents are available on the website and copies are available at the Council offices to view. The documents include an Introductory Brochure, an Executive Summary of the Draft Spatial Framework as well as the full Draft Spatial Framework with supporting Technical Appendices and environmental assessments.

The consultation period remains open until 11th November 2021.

After the consultation period has closed, the submissions will be collated and considered and refinements made prior to finalising and publishing the final Spatial Framework.

The LDA can be contacted at or at Colbert Quarter, The Land Development Agency, 2nd Floor, Ashford House, 18-23 Tara St, Dublin 2 S02 VX67.
