Integrated Area Plan - IAP

Integrated Area Plan - IAP

The 1999 Urban Renewal Scheme involves a more targeted approach to the award of urban renewal incentives. The scheme is based on the concept that the designation of an area should not take place in isolation, but should emerge from a broadly based Integrated Area PLan(IAP).

As part of its Development Plan review process and in the preparation of the AR the Corporation consulted widely with organisations and individuals on the need for tax designations as an adjunct to Urban Renewal. More than 70 submissions were received. Of the 65 sites recommended by the Corporation, a total of 45 were designated covering an area of 50 acres. The approved designations address not only issues of physical development but also cover the wider issues of local socioeconomic benefit. The Corporation is confident that those projects that have not been accepted on this occasion will be retained for future attention.

The purpose of the LAP is to give effect to the goals of the city Development Plan which are to promote the economic and community development in Limerick. Through the implementation of this initiative, the Corporation hopes to see the creation of more than 1000 new jobs in retailing and tourism in the city centre, the redevelopment of derelict and deprived inner city areas and the conservation of historic buildings. The Corporation regards the IAP process as a means of consolidating the various promotional, renewal conservation and community development actions in which it has been engaged over the past 20 years.

It is the view of the Corporation that the lAP will enable the maximum community gain to be derived from the wide range of infrastructural and tourism development projects in which it is currently engaged, including the Main Drainage Scheme, the Northern Relief Road, the Castle Lane Project, the King's Island Major Initiative, Shannon Navigation Project, the Planning Land Use and Transportation Study and many others in which it has an associative role with voluntary and private agencies.

One of the main features of implementation of the IAP is to ensure that a process exists where the barriers to delay will be recognised and eliminated. In this regard, the Corporation has established a cross-sectoral monitoring committee, which has the responsibility of providing guidance on how the barriers and difficulties can be eliminated. This committee includes representation from Limerick Corporation, Shannon Development, the Chamber of Commerce, Paul Partnership, the Council of Trade Unions, the Construction Industry Federation, the Architects Forum and Limerick Civic Trust. The primary responsibility of the above group will be the overseeing and implementation of the Integrated Area Plan.

It should be noted that developments under the IAP are subject to prior certification by Limerick Corporation that the development is consistant with the objectives of the IAP. The qualifying periods for the commercial/industrial tax incentives run from 1st July, 1999 to 31st December, 2002. Residential tax incentives run from 1st March, 1999 to 31st December, 2002.The Corporation is confident that much will be achieved in the timeframe involved.
