Lisburn City Centre Masterplan

Lisburn City Centre Masterplan

The former Lisburn City Council worked in partnership with the Department for Social Development to produce the Lisburn City Centre Masterplan which was launched in September 2010.

The City Centre Masterplan aims to transform the physical, social and economic fabric of the city and ensure that Lisburn is able to compete with other major towns and cities while maintaining its distinctiveness and environmental heritage for generations to come.

In support of the Masterplan a detailed Transport Study was commissioned looking at the impact of new developments on the transport system and road network across the City. The transport study was jointly funded by the Department for Social Development and Lisburn City Council.

A number of priority projects, identified through the masterplan, have been implemented and are currently progressing through the work of the Councils Regeneration team.

Since the launch of the Masterplan the Council's Regeneration team has been working to develop and progress an initial portfolio of priority projects which include the City Centre Public Realm improvements; Laganbank Quarter Development Scheme and identifying Car Park Development Opportunity Sites.

The Lisburn Design Compendium was produced as a complementary document to the Lisburn City Centre Masterplan. This is not a prescriptive document, but offers guidance to prospective development parties as to how to respond to the form of the masterplan, and to maximise the opportunity for new development to contribute positively to the urban form.
