The plan making process is a collaborative one and we are looking for you to explore the Draft Plan and provide your views on the Draft County Development Plan. South Dublin County Council hereby invites any interested individuals or parties to make submissions and observations in respect of the Draft Plan. Children, or groups or associations representing the interests of children, are entitled to make submissions or observations.

Following special Development Plan remote Council meetings which took place on the 17th, 18th, 21st, 23rd and 24th June 2021, and having further reviewed the meeting recordings and prepared the related minutes, errata have been identified to the Draft Development Plan currently on display.  

The errata to the Draft Development Plan are detailed in Table 1.1 of the Errata document and are structured to follow the sequence of the Draft Development Plan. This document should therefore be read in conjunction with the Draft South Dublin County Development Plan 2022-2028. This Errata document includes new objectives, as well as minor amendments to policy/objectives and addition of text in the Written Statement. The amendments have been assessed as part of the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and Appropriate Assessment (AA) of the Draft Plan which has ensured that the potential for any significant environmental effects of the amendments have been assessed. The Errata document includes their SEA and AA environmental assessments.
