20,000 new homes for Dún Laoghaire?

3 D Personnel

Dún Laoghaire Council has unveiled its draft development plans for the 2022 to 2028 period and includes 20,000 new homes, which would convert it into a major new urban area in southeast Dublin.  The plans have gone on “virtual public display” and can be consulted up to and including the 16th of April 2021:


The plan envisages developing new communities alongside the M50 motorway in Ballyogan, Old Connaught, Rathmichael, Woodbrook-Shanganagh and Kilternan-Glenamuck.  They would be serviced by the Luas green line and a new Dart station at Woodbrook.

Sustainability is considered as rural areas, for example Bride’s Glen stream, are to be preserved.  In a further effort to consider sustainability in urbanised areas, the “10-minute” neighbourhood concept is prominent, whose objective is to enable communities to carry out most of their day to day activities, work, leisure, school, etc., within a 10 minute cycle.

Councillors will vote on the plan later on in the year.
