Printer-friendly version

This audit was commissioned to examine the current context with respect to social infrastructure provision in the Dublin Docklands, to determine future requirements and make recommendations on priority areas for investment. It has been prepared in accordance with Objective CD21 of the North Lotts & Grand Canal Dock Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) Planning Scheme with the aim of aligning the roll out of City Block development with social and community infrastructure needs.

The Planning Scheme sets out ambitious plans for the development of the area and it is important that economic aims are appropriately counterbalanced and supported by social aspects to ensure the docklands is a liveable, healthy and enjoyable place to work and reside.

Purpose of Study

The report is an important first step in the delivery of social infrastructure improvements in the Docklands under the guise of the SDZ framework. It has been prepared in accordance with Objective CD21 of the Planning Scheme.

The purpose of the audit is to examine the current context with respect to social infrastructure facilities in the area, to determine future requirements and make recommendations on priority areas for future investment.
