Services in Touraneena include a primary school, playing field, community hall, church, 2 public houses, a shop and a community park. The GAA playing fields are detached from village, approximately 1km to the north.
The majority of dwellings in the area have individual means of sewage disposal. However, there is a constructed wetlands disposal system, which was built to service Council housing in the village.
Existing development in Touraneena is largely linear and confined to the east of the village. This is a result of the topography, which slopes rather steeply downwards from east to west. This has implications for development opportunities in the area as the land to the west of the village cannot be easily connected to a public sewer. The development strategy for Tooraneena is as indicated on the Land Use Zoning Map. The policies and objectives of the Development Standards, as set out in Chapter 9, shall be used as guidelines to inform development proposals.
The council will require that all housing estate planning applications include proposals for the sustainable treatment of wastewater as well as proposals for the provision of an adequate water supply. The council will encourage prospective developers to enter into partnership agreements to deliver the infrastructure that will facilitate such development. Any such proposals should be discussed with the Sanitary Services Section of Waterford County Council prior to the submission of a planning application.
