A feasibility study on the redevelopment potential of the Tallaght Garda station site was drawn up by the Office of Public Works following consultation with South Dublin County Council in December 2003. A proposal to go to the market to acquire a development partner for the site is under preparation.

Any proposal to redevelop the Garda station site would require the agreement of the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform having regard to the operational requirements of the Garda Síochána in the Tallaght area.
