Executive Summary

The Dublin City Development Plan (2022-2028) is a plan which sets out how the city will develop to meet the needs of all residents, workers and visitors.

The aim of the plan is to improve the quality of life for its citizens, and make sure that Dublin City is an attractive place to live, work and visit. The plan’s policies and objectives:

  • guide growth and development,
  • provide a strategy to achieve proper planning, and
  • show how we will achieve sustainable development, that is development that meets our needs now and won’t comprise future generations meeting their needs.

The plan has 16 key chapters and we summarise the main points in each chapter. Chapter 1 provides a context for the plan and all other chapters focus on a specific theme or themes.

As you read, you will notice the high level of integration and interdependence between themes and actions across chapters.
