The Dublin City Development Plan sets out policies and objectives for the sustainable development of the city as a whole
The plan provides for a wide range of strategic needs, including sustainable development, housing, infrastructure such as transport, community facilities and amenities, public spaces, neighbourhood regeneration programmes, vibrant social and cultural communities.
The plan includes major changes for the Kilmainham-Inchicore area – and indeed major developments such as the ‘City Edge Project’.
The next plan comes into effect at the end of 2022 and will be in operation until the end of 2028.
The Emmet Road Development,
formerly St. Michael’s Estate, planning application was lodged with An Bord Pleanála in October 2022 and will become home to an estimated 1200 new residents.
