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.
