The new County Development Plan for Dun Laoghaire Rathdown
Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council is preparing a new County Development Plan for the period 2022-2028 which will shape the future development of the County. The Council is looking for the views of the public on the policies that should ensure proper future planning and sustainable development of the county.
The Council has prepared a Paper setting out background information on several important issues such as housing need, employment, transport, climate change, heritage, and posing some questions to assist the public in thinking about what should go into the Plan. You can read this on the Council website (link). https://www.dlrcoco.ie

What Imagine Dundrum will be doing
