The Issues paper for the development of a Local Area Plan (LAP) for Dundrum 2019-2025 has just been made public. As part of the first stage of developing a LAP for Dundrum, the Planning Authority is now engaging in Pre-Draft consultation with the general public and a wide range of organisations and interest groups which will run until Friday 14th of December.
Local Area Plans are important because they set out a land use strategy for the proper planning and sustainable development of the area. They relate to the zoning of land; the phasing of development; economic and community development; residential development; heritage and culture; open space and recreation; transportation and infrastructure; urban design; and environmental protection. Therefore it is important for local people to have an input into them.
Two Information Sessions for members of the public will be held on the following dates:
Tuesday 27th November 2018 Council Offices, Dundrum Office Park, Dundrum 3.00pm – 8.00pm
Tuesday 11th December 2018 Council Offices, Dundrum Office Park, Dundrum 3.00pm – 8.00pm
