Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Develoment Plan 2010-2016 - Two Year Progress Report (10th April, 2012)
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Development Plan 2010 - 2016
The current Development Plan for the county of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown came into effect on 8th April, 2010 after a two year public consultation process and was adopted by the elected members. The Development Plan consists of a written statement and a set of 14 maps. The written statement sets out the general policy of he Council for the development of the county. It includes detailed standards for the control of development and specific objectives for different areas.
The maps illustrate the land use zoning provisions of the Plan, the road programmes and other objectives such as the preservation of trees and structures of archaeological interest. The Plan seeks to provide for the future well-being of the residents of the County by facilitating the growth of employment by ensuring an adequate supply of zoned lands for anticipated needs, by protecting the quality of the environment and by ensuring the provision of necessary infrastructure.
A constant theme of the Plan is the promotion of sustainable development. The Plan also recognises the need to co-operate with the Regional Authority, Dublin Transportation Office and other agencies in meeting the needs of the Dublin Region.
The making of a Plan or any variation of a Plan is a function reserved to the elected members of the Council. A hard copy of the Plan is available for inspection at the planning Department's Public Counter and in our Dundrum office and in the Branch Libraries of Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council.
