Chapter 2: Core Strategy and Settlement Strategy
Maximises the potential of the County to deliver a compact settlement form in line with National and Regional population targets, with a strong focus on regeneration and the redevelopment of brownfield over green field lands.
The purpose of this Chapter is to set out the Core Strategy for the Plan which has informed the overall vision for future development within the County up to 2028. Climate Action is integrated as a central overarching theme for all aspects of the Development Plan, a key element of which is compact growth.
The Core Strategy is made up of the settlement hierarchy and growth strategy for South Dublin County and is an essential part of the Plan demonstrating that the quantum and location of development in the County is in line with National and Regional planning policy.
