Preparation of a Local Area Plan for Dundrum
Intro Text 

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council intends to prepare a Local Area Plan for Dundrum as identified in Chapter 2 of the County Development Plan 2022-2028.

A Local Area Plan (LAP) is a statutory document prepared by the Planning Authority in accordance with the requirements of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended).

An 'Issues Paper' has been prepared to give a broad overview of the main development issues facing Dundrum and to stimulate public debate on what broad planning and development matters should be considered in the new LAP. The Issues Paper can be viewed here A detailed map of the proposed Local Area Plan boundary can be viewed here



The LAP will set out a land use strategy for the proper planning and sustainable development of the area. It will consist of a written statement and maps indicating objectives for purposes such as the zoning of land; the phasing of development; economic and community development; residential development; heritage and culture; open space and recreation; transportation and infrastructure; urban design; and environmental protection.
