The conservation plan has been prepared for the Mountjoy Square Society (MSS) and the Parks and Landscape Services within the Culture, Recreation and Economic Services Department in Dublin City Council (DCC) by Howley Hayes Architects and Dermot Foley Landscape Architects.
It considers the history, development and changes within Mountjoy Square in Dublin over a period of approximately 200 years. Illustrated with drawings, historic maps and numerous photographs, the plan examines the development of this historic park, with its planting, buildings and features and how these have changed over time.
An assessment of the significance of the park as an integral part of the cultural landscape of the Georgian city, in accordance with its designation as an Architectural Conservation Area, is also included together with recommendations for a number of policies to inform future conservation and development strategies.
