Authority Launches Planning & Development Report for Dublin
The National Transport Authority, in collaboration with the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government and the four Dublin local authorities, has published the attached report “Planning and Development of Large-Scale, Rail Focussed Areas in Dublin”.
The purpose of the report is to assess the issues impacting on the development of strategic areas adjacent to key public transport corridors, including in particular the emerging pressures to develop these areas on a low density basis, and to propose potential solutions to enable the viable development of these areas over the longer term.
The report proposes a “Kickstart” Incremental Development Approach, where lower density development can be permitted initially as part of a planned approach to deliver to the overall intended densities over the longer term. It also proposes a co-ordinated and targeted approach across the relevant public sector entities in supporting necessary infrastructure in key development locations.
