Further to review of the original 2007 scheme, the current scheme was approved in July 2013.  The purpose is to reinvigorate Grafton Street as the South City's most dynamic retail experience underpinned by a wide range of mainstream, independent and specialist retail and service outlets that attract both Dubliners and visitors to shop, sit and stroll, whilst re-establishing the area's rich historic charm and urban character.   The extent of the Area of Special Planning Control is identical to the 'Grafton Street & Environs Architectural Conservation Area'.
