Planning

Dublin City Council is responsible for ensuring that all those who have an interest in the planning and economic development of the city have an input to the formulation of planning policies. Planning and economic development is achieved through implementing the objectives of the City Development Plan 2011-2017, regulating and managing new development proposals and protecting and enhancing the City’s architectural and urban heritage.

The Planning Department through its Development Plan sets out a vision and an overall strategy for the proper planning and sustainable development of the City for this six year period. It also sets out guiding policies and objectives for the development of the City in terms of physical growth and renewal, economic, social and cultural activity, and environmental protection and enhancement. The City Development Plan must take account of various national and regional strategies and guidelines. The Plan reflects consultation with the general public and other interested bodies.

The making of the Dublin City Development Plan, Local Area Plans, any variation of a plan and any material contravention of the plan is a function reserved to the elected members of the Council. The Council must take the necessary steps to implement the objectives which are contained in the development plan.
