Public Consultation is open for the Dublin City Development Plan 2022-2028 until February 14th at 4:30 p.m. The Development Plan sets out policies and objectives to guide how and where development will take place in the city over the lifetime of the Plan. This is an important opportunity to set out a path for climate action for Dublin to ensure that we reduce our emissions and put us on the path to a thriving, sustainable city by 2028.
The plan’s policies and objectives are to guide growth and development, provide a strategy to achieve proper planning, and show how we will achieve sustainable development, that is development that meets our needs now and won’t comprise future generations meeting their needs.

Bringing the Climate Action message home

When making your submission, the city planners need to hear from your expertise, local knowledge, interesting ideas and passion for the city, its communities and its role in climate action. So please do take the opportunity to contribute and to ensure your voice is heard!
