NOTICE OF PROPOSED MATERIAL ALTERATIONS TO THE SOUTH DUBLIN DRAFT COUNTY DEVELOPMENT PLAN 2022-2028

 

Where did the proposed Material Alterations originate?

The Chief Executive prepared a report on the submissions to the Draft Plan and the Elected Members considered the report at Special Council Meetings in March 2022, where they resolved to amend the Draft Plan. 

In accordance with section 12 (7) of the Planning and Development Act (as amended) this document sets out the Proposed Material Alterations to the Draft Plan as made by the Elected Members of South Dublin County Council following consideration of the Draft County Development Plan 2022-2028 and the Chief Executive’s Report on submissions.
