New Dublin Development Plan
|Paul Cullen||11/02/2009||Dublin City Council is currently preparing to draw up a new development plan for the city, covering the years 2011 on. Men in dark suits and hard hats and carrying measuring tape have already been spotted around the area.|
Last time round, CIE tried to rezone much of their land in the Works and the council planners obliged by designating double this parcel of land for rezoning.
Only a determined campaign by local residents defeated the proposal.
This time, it's likely they'll try again. The spectre of ill-planned high-rise towering over the historic CIE estate will rise again.
If you are interested in helping to draw up a submission to the council on how WE would like to see our area develop, let us know.

|Michael O'Flanagan||12/02/2009||Is it really worth the effort when Dublin City Council and An Bord Pleanala ignore the zonings when they give their decisions in any case?|
|Jo||12/03/2009||Just a reminder that the first deadline for submissions to the new Development Plan is Wednesday 18th March. You can find the Big Issues comment page on the Dublin City Website.|
