On the 15th December 2015, the Government designated the lands at Balgaddy-Clonburris as a Strategic Development Zone (SDZ). The SDZ lands, which comprise approximately 280 hectares, are deemed to be of economic and social importance to the State.
South Dublin County Council is specified as the Development Agency for the purposes of the Planning Scheme under the SDZ designation in accordance with Part IX Section 166(3) of the Act. As the designated Agency, South Dublin County Council has prepared a Draft Planning Scheme. It consists of a written statement and plans indicating the type and extent of development to be permitted in the Clonburris SDZ, together with proposals relating to the design of the development, transportation, the provision of services, the minimisation of any adverse impacts on the environment and the provision of amenities, facilities and services for the community. It is accompanied by an Environmental Report and an Appropriate Assessment Stage 1: Screening Report.
The display of the Clonburris Strategic Development Zone Draft Planning Scheme, its Environmental Report and Appropriate Assessment Screening Report are available for inspection during normal office opening hours at the following locations from Friday 22nd September to Friday 3rd November 2017 inclusive: SDCC County Hall Tallaght, County Library Tallaght, Civic Offices Clondalkin, Clondalkin Library and Lucan Library.
