NOTICE OF PROPOSED VARIATIONS NO.1 AND NO. 2 OF SOUTH DUBLIN COUNTY COUNCIL DEVELOPMENT PLAN 2016-2022

South Dublin County Council has initiated variations of the South Dublin County Council Development Plan 2016-2022 in accordance with Section 13 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended). 

The proposed variations relate to the following:

 Proposed Variation No.1 - Zoning Amendment to Lands at Grangecastle West

It is proposed to change the zoning objective of 193 hectares of land from zoning objective RU (Rural and Agriculture) to objective EE (Enterprise and Employment). These lands are located in the townlands of Loughtown Upper and Milltown, which are south of the Grand Canal and west and north of the R120, adjoining the existing Grange Castle Business Park. It is also proposed to realign the indicative route for the Western Dublin Orbital Route (North).

The reason for the proposed variation is to ensure the availability of sufficiently zoned land for enterprise and employment in an established economic cluster that has been subject to significant investment in high quality infrastructure and services, thereby facilitating the future growth and development of employment and enterprise opportunities in South Dublin County in a sustainable and orderly planning manner.

Changes are proposed to Map Sheet No. 3 and No. 4.

Accompanying Proposed Variation No. 1 is:

  • A Planning Report.
  • Amended Development Plan Maps No. 3 and 4.

In accordance with the provisions of the Urban Regeneration and Housing Act 2015, the proposed variation provides for the inclusion of mandatory objectives for the development and renewal of areas that are in need of residential development and/or regeneration and the identification of areas in need of residential development and/or regeneration which may be subject to the application of the vacant site levy in the future.

Additional text and objectives have been proposed to Chapters 1, 2 and 11 of the Written Statement. No changes have been made to the maps.
