Intro Text 

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, in its role as Planning Authority, has made two applications to An Bord Pleanála to amend the Cherrywood Planning Scheme 2014, a summary of which is set out below:

 

Following on from its application on 12th January 2017 to An Bord Pleanála to amend the Cherrywood Planning Scheme, a decision to approve Amendments 1 - 4 was issued by the Board to Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council in June 2017 under Section 17(A) of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended). These amendments arose from the introduction in December 2015 of the "Sustainable Urban Housing: Design Standards for New Apartments Guidelines for Planning Authorities". The application of the policy standards in these Guidelines resulted in inconsistencies within the approved Planning Scheme which required clarification and amendment. This application included Amendment No. 5 which related to retail sequencing, which was subsequently withdrawn from the statutory process. The detail of this approved Amendment 1 - 4 may be accessed by clicking here or under the Related Documents on this page.

A second application was made in July 2018 by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council to An Bord Pleanála to amend the Planning Scheme in relation to Chapter 7: Sequencing and Phasing of Development. The purpose of the Amendment is to accelerate the delivery of housing acknowledging the large scale of infrastructure of roads and public parks delivered to date in opening up lands for development . The detail of this approved Amendment may be accessed by clicking here or under the Related Documents on this page.
 
The Cherrywood Planning Scheme 2014 document, as amended in 2017, will be updated to incorporate the approved amendments for Chapter 7 and a revised document will be made available shortly both on the web and in hard copy format. However, in the interim, the Scheme should be read in conjunction with the updated Chapter 7 Approved Amendments document, as per the link above.
