The Development Plan should seek to protect and enhance the Lucan Weir/Bridge areas with a view to it being a marquee public space in the county. To achieve this, I propose the Development Plan should include objectives to:
- Complete the paving of the promenade along the weir, including the steps down from Lucan Bridge;
- Re-route the proposed Grand Canal to Royal Canal urban greenway to along the east side of the bridge, protecting the famous vista of the bridge from the west;
- Include an objective to work with Fingal County Council to protect the character and visual integrity of both the streetscape of the Weirview terrace and landscape of and above the cliff and behind Weirview.
