These areas generally include all the waterways and waterbodies in the Dublin City Council area. The purpose of the zoning is to protect the amenity of these areas including views and prospects into/out of the areas (see Chapter 9, Sections 9.5.4 – Surface water drainage and sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) and also Chapter 10, Sections 10.5.4 – Rivers canals and the coastline, Dublin Bay, and Biodiversity).
