The Dublin Docklands Area Master Plan
The Master Plan provides a framework to guide development of the Docklands Area (also referred to as the Docklands) over the five-year period and beyond, embracing social regen- eration, economic development, land use, transportation, infrastructure, urban design arts, tourism, culture, leisure, and implementation.
Policies and text are accompanied by figures illustrating key aspects and ideas proposed in the Master Plan together with maps illustrating Land Use Zoning Objectives and Specific Objectives.
The review of the Master Plan was commenced in November 2007. Initial meetings were held with the Executive Board, the Council and Docklands’ Community Representatives.
Consultants on traffic, infrastructure, economic development, land use, arts, culture and tourism, property, cost implications and urban design contributed to individual chapters which collectively formed the Draft Dublin Docklands Master Plan 2008 document.
Following a full review of the 2003 Master Plan by the consultant team, the drafting of updated and new policies was commenced.
Consultation The Master Plan process was guided by frequent consultations with:
The Community Liaison Committee
Local business Stakeholders
Dublin City Council
Environmental Protection Agency
Dublin Transportation Office
Other Statutory Bodies
A major milestone in the process was the presentation and consultation with over 200 community representatives at the Docklands Social Regeneration Conference held in Killarney in January 2008.
