Dublin City Council welcomes the decision of An Bord Pleanala to approve the making of the Planning Scheme for the Poolbeg West SDZ on the 9th April 2019, subject to a number of modifications, minor in nature.

The Scheme provides for a new neighbourhood of up to 3,500 homes close to the heart of the city, the plan incorporates new public open spaces, including a coastal park and a range of supporting community facilities including new schools.

The Chief Executive, Owen Keegan, in welcoming the decision of the Board, said that "the development will transform this brownfield site into a vibrant city neighbourhood and will greatly help alleviate our housing crisis, noting that the plan provides for a wide range of apartments, associated employment and a neighbourhood centre."

Dublin City Council, as the designated Development Agency is committed to implementing this scheme to ensure it becomes a successful new part of our city.
