Narrator: In preparing the draft plan, the Council has already received views from communities, councillors and special interest groups through written submissions, meetings and online discussions. That feedback was reviewed and has helped shape this draft, with its vision of a Sustainable Dublin in 2030. Now we're inviting you to discuss and comment on the vision, the priorities and objectives of the plan. Submissions or observations are being accepted until Friday, the 12th March. You'll find print copies in your local library, or you can get your own copy by contacting Dublin City Council's Civic Offices in Wood Quay.

The Draft Dublin City Development Plan 2011-2017 was on public display from 21st December 2009 to 12th March, 2010. A total of 1,208 formal submissions were received during this period. Each submission was fully considered and was summarised in a Manager's Report, which was then considered by the City Council at special meetings held between 26th-28th July, 2010.
The Elected Council adopted a resolution at the meeting on 28th July, 2010 and resolved that material amendments agreed by them to the Draft Dublin City Development Plan 2010 - 2017, be placed on four weeks statutory public display in accordance with the provisions of the Planning and Development Acts 2000 - 2006.
The Proposed Amendments to the Draft Dublin City Development Plan 2011-2017 went on public display at over 30 venues in the city from 18th August - 15th September 2010 inclusive. They are available to download for free from the Document Downloads page of this website. During this period members of the public were invited to make submissions in relation to the proposed amendments.
Following the display period the Manager will submit a report to the Members by the middle of October 2010, based on the submissions received on the proposed amendments. The City Council will then have six weeks to make the new City Development Plan (by 24th November 2010). The Plan will become effective four weeks after that date.
