Intro Text 

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown (dlr) are embarking on the process of reviewing the current Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Development Plan, 2016-2022, and preparing a new County Development Plan (CDP) that will shape the future growth of the County for the period of 2022 – 2028.

We would like to thank all the individuals and groups who made submissions as part of the pre-draft consultation phase held in January and February. Many thanks also to everyone who visited us at our open days held throughout the County. The initial 8-week pre-draft public consultation closed 28rd February, 2020 with a total of 151 written submission received. Submissions can be viewed in full here:

The development plan team will now summarise all submissions received and prepare responses to the issues raised along with recommendations on the policies to be included in the draft plan.  This report will be available to view online at the end of April 2020.  The report will be considered by the 40 councillors who may then issue directions to the executive regarding the preparation of the draft plan. 

Work will continue throughout the summer on the  draft plan with the draft plan of the executive circulated to the 40 councillors for their consideration in the Autumn.  The draft plan will be made by the councillors in November 2020. 

Your next opportunity for public involvement in the Plan making process will be in late 2020 and early 2021 when you will have a chance to make a submission on the draft Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown (dlr) County Development Plan. The table below sets out the plan making process and where we are at present:
