Retail Design Manual

Retail Design Manual: A companion document to the Retail Planning Guidelines for Planning Authorities, published 2012, was prepared by Paul Keogh Architects, in association with John Spain Associates. The publication was a co-initiative under the Government Policy on Architecture 2009-2015 Implementation Programme by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

The Retail Planning Guidelines 2012, and this Retail Design Manual, are intended to provide a planning framework for future development of the retail sector in a way which meets the needs of modern shopping formats while contributing to protecting, supporting and promoting the attractiveness and competitiveness of city and town centres as places to live, work, shop and visit.
