Intro Text 

Cherrywood SDZ is the single largest undeveloped land-bank in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, and is approximately 360 hectares in size, nestled at the foot of the Dublin Mountains, is strategically located between the M50 and N11 transport corridors approximately 1km north of where they fork from the M11 and approximately 8km south of Dún Laoghaire town centre.  Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, in recognising the area's strategic importance, applied to the Government for Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) status and the Government designated it as an SDZ in May, 2010.  

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, in their role as the designated Development Agency for Cherrywood SDZ, had a statutory duty to draft and agree a Planning Scheme for the SDZ, which was approved by Council following a comprehensive public consultation in December 2012. This was then formally submitted to An Bord Pleanála who subsequently approved the Planning Scheme with modifications in April 2014. 

The front-loading of significant transport and social infrastructure (parks and schools) outlined in the Planning Scheme will ensure that the SDZ area will be transformed into a new vibrant community, with approx. 8,700 homes including a minimum of 10% social housing units, spread over the new Town Centre and 3 smaller Village Centres with superior transport links including an enhanced bus service and 5 Luas stops throughout. 

Important Note: The Cherrrywood Planning Scheme document list below under "Main Document" was updated in June 2017 to incorporate the Approved Amendments 1 - 4, details of which can be accessed through this link.

The Planning Scheme document will be further updated to incorporate the Approved Amendments: Chapter 7: Sequencing and Phasing of Development following the approval by An Bord Pleanála in December 2018. A revised Planning Scheme document incorporating these latest Approved Amendments will be available shortly.
