To inform the preparation of the Draft SDZ Planning Scheme, the Council undertook non-statutory pre-draft public consultation in March / April 2016. A Chief Executive’s Report was prepared summarising the issues raised.
A Draft Planning Scheme was prepared by South Dublin County Council and went on public display in September 2017. Following the period of public display and the preparation of the Chief Executive’s Report on submissions and observations received, the Elected Members voted to adopt the Draft Planning Scheme with alterations, a number of which constituted material alterations.
South Dublin County Council decided by resolution to make the Clonburris Strategic Development Zone Planning Scheme, together with a number of Material and Non-Material Alterations in June 2018. The decision was appealed.
An Bord Pleanala held an Oral Hearing for the appeals in January 2019. Appeal decision is pending.
