Developers shall agree estate names with the Planning Authority prior to the commencement of
development. Such estate names shall be in the Irish language only and shall reflect the history
and topography of the area in which they are located. The names of public roads shall be in the
Irish language only.

Councillor Jim O’Callaghan
This Council resolves that paragraph 4.4.4.1. (Approach to taller buildings) (Pages 32-33) of the
proposed Draft Development Plan be amended as follows:

i.     “Dublin City Council acknowledges the intrinsic quality of Dublin as a low- to medium rise
City and considers that it should predominantly remain so”;

ii.     “Taller building clusters of the type needed to promote significant densities of commercial
space are only likely to be achieved in the docklands, at Heuston, and in the larger
predominantly non-residential key developing areas, where there is good public transport links
and sites of sufficient size to create their own character.”;

iii.        “The approach has four strands:

            1.       A strategic map indicating that the vast majority of the City will remain low-rise
            with taller buildings confined to five areas including the docklands and Heuston, and mid-
            rise buildings restricted to the new predominantly non-residential developing areas…”

            4.     “A definition of taller, mid-rise and low-rise buildings, in the Dublin context is
            provided in the standards section.”

iv.    “In addition, it is policy to retain the remaining areas of the City to a maximum height of
25m (eight storeys for residential development) 18m (six storeys for residential development)
and proposals must respect their context in all cases.”

v.      “Taller buildings are acceptable at major public transport hubs, or in the main
predominantly non-residential key developing areas such as parts of the docklands. or in the
outer City in locations such as Pelletstown and Ballymun, where a limited number of mid rise
buildings will help provide a new urban identity.”

vi.         “It is the policy of Dublin City Council;

            SC15 To protect and enhance the intrinsic quality of Dublin as a predominantly low- to
            medium rise City, and to provide for taller buildings in the designated limited locations
            (see figure 21).

            SC16 To protect and enhance the skyline of the inner city, and to ensure that all
            proposals for mid-rise and taller buildings are limited to areas that are predominantly
            non-residential in character and make a positive contribution to the urban character of
            the City, having regard to the criteria and site principles set out in the development
            standards section. In particular all new proposals must demonstrate sensitivity to the


                                                          2
       historic city centre, the River Liffey and quays, Trinity College, the cathedrals, Dublin
       Castle, the historic squares and the City canals.

       SC17 To promote a co-ordinated approach to the provision of taller buildings in the
       designated limited locations for which they are provided (see figure 21) through local
       area plans and strategic master plans, in order to prevent visual clutter or cumulative
       negative visual disruption of the skyline.”

Councillor Jim O’Callaghan
This Council resolves that paragraph 16.4 (Principles for building height in a sustainable city)
(page 183) of the proposed Draft Development Plan be amended as follows:

are predominantly non-residential;

.       All proposals for high buildings must form part of a sustainable, commercial mixed use

ii.    “3.      Georges Quay…
.      To provide for 1-2 mid-rise buildings combined with a new public realm around the City
Quay/school, provided it which would support the residential communities of the City Quay

This Council resolves that paragraphs 17.6 (Building Height in a Sustainable City (see figure 21)

…”

iv.    “Social criteria

residential.

.      Minimise overshadowing and overlooking of surrounding properties and adverse impacts
on any established or emerging residential communities.

potential interference with underground watercourses, the potential for negative impingement on
the foundations of adjoining structures and arising from the desire to maintain and preserve the
architectural and conservation character of the existing structures, this Council resolves to
include the following wording after the first paragraph of 17.9.11 Basements (which deals with
Development Standards):

It is the Policy of Dublin City Council to discourage any or any significant underground or

Councillor Damien O’Farrell
This Council resolves to re-instate Par. 15.10.4. of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-2011 in its
entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

"Development in Conservation Areas:

All new buildings should complement and enhance the character and setting of conservation
areas. In considering proposals for development in conservation areas, it is policy to have particular
regard to:

•    The effect of the proposed development on buildings and the surrounding environment, both
     natural and man-made
•    The impact of development on the immediate streetscape in terms of compatibility of design,
     scale, height, plot width, roof treatment, materials, landscaping, mix and intensity of use
     proposed.

Development within conservation areas should be so designed so as not to constitute a ' visually
obtrusive or dominant form of development. New alterations and extensions should complement
existing buildings/structures in terms of design, external finishes, colour, texture,
windows/doors/roof/chimney/design and other details.

The Planning Authority discourages the use of uPVC or aluminium in windows, fascias and doors in
historic buildings that are not protected. Proposals for the application of cement render to the
external fabric of older buildings will not be encourages in conservation areas. In assessing
development proposals, the Planning Authority will seek the retention of mature trees (those in good
condition) which contribute to the character of conservation areas where appropriate.


                                                    17
In conservation areas, no advertising material other than brass or stone name-plate type signs will
be permitted. On commercial properties leading into such areas, advertising will be severely
restricted, and shall only relate to the service provided in the premises. In dealing with all
advertising in conservation areas, the overriding consideration will be the enhancement and
protection of the essential visual qualities of the area. Where applications for security cameras
are proposed, every effort should be made to conceal the device and to employ best available
technology, including the smallest scale of device available, to ensure that the device would
not be obtrusive and would not detract from the integrity of the conservation area.

In conservation areas, the development of housing between the main house and the mews
building, particularly on corner sites, has had a detrimental effect on the visual and residential
amenities of these areas. Hence, bock/and development will not be permitted in conservation
areas where the development proposed would introduce a third line of building between the
main building and its associated mews."

Councillor Damien O’Farrell
This Council resolves to reinstate in full Par.15.10.2 of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-2011
In Its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

"Development within the Curtilage and Setting of Protected Structures

In considering applications for development within the curtilage of a protected structure, the
Planning Authority shall have regard to the following:

 •   The protected status of the structure and the need to protect its special character
 •    The various elements of the structure which give the protected structure its special
     character and how these would be impacted on by the proposed development
 •    Proximity of any new development to the main protected structure and any other
     buildings of heritage value
 •    The design of the new development, which should relate to and complement the special
     character of the protected structure

An insistence on quality will be a foremost consideration when assessing proposals for
development within the curtilage of protected structures, with particular emphasis on siting,
building lines, proportions, scale, massing, height, roof treatment and materials. This does not
preclude innovative contemporary buildings which can contribute to the richness of the
historical context. Materials shall be appropriate to the locality and sympathetic to the existing
buildings.

Development proposals should include an appraisal of the wider context of the site or structure.
This appraisal should examine the visual impact and design of the proposal and should address
issues including the grain of historic settings, sensitivity to scale and context, views and the
design of innovative quality architecture which would complement the setting of the protected
structure. The Planning Authority will seek to retain the traditional proportionate relationship in
scale between buildings, their returns, gardens and mews structures, and shall also seek to
retain gardens and mature trees (those in good condition) which contribute to the character of a
protected structure, as soft landscape."



                                                18
Councillor Damien O’Farrell
This Council resolves to re-instate the following section of Par. 10.2.1 of the Dublin City
Development Plan 2005-2011 into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

"The special value of conservation areas lies in the architectural design and scale of these areas and is
of sufficient importance to require special care in dealing with development proposals and works by the
private and public sector alike. Dublin City Council will thus seek to ensure that development proposals
within all conservation areas complement the character of the area, including the setting of protected
structures, and comply with development standards."

Councillor Mary O’Shea
That the following clarification be included to ensure that nothing in the Development Plan that is
adopted for the years 2011-2017(the Development Plan) is at variance with or contradicts the
provisions of any Local Area Plan adopted prior to the adoption of the Development Plan where
the said Local Area Plan is a valid subsisting document at the date of the adoption of the
Development Plan. “Provided Always that the provisions of any validly adopted Local Area Plan
adopted prior to the adoption of this Development Plan shall have precedence over the
provisions of this Development Plan for the lifetime of the said Local Area Plan, for the
avoidance of doubt anything herein contained shall not be capable of amending any provision of
the Local Area Plan for the lifetime of the Local Area Plan save where that Local Area Plan is
amended in accordance with the provisions of the said Local Area Plan”.

Councillor Mary O’Shea
That the term “policy” as used in the draft Development Plan be defined and the relationship
between the terms “policy” and “objective” be clarified,. The provisions of the Planning and
Development Act, 2000 dealing with the content of Development Plans obliges a Local Authority
to set out development objectives in making a Development Plan however the Act would appear
to make no so such provision in relation to policy.

Councillor Mary O’Shea
That greater clarity be provided in defining the Inner City, it would appear to be the areas within
the canals, see Chapter 17.3 dealing with density standards, this definition is too broad and
encompasses areas like Phibsborough which is also a Key District Centre which has entirely
different density standards.

Councillor Mary O’Shea
That greater clarity be provided in the definition of Key District Centers and Key Developing
Areas, there are areas such as North Fringe, Ballymun, Naas Road and Phibsborough which are
classified as being both.

Councillor Mary O’Shea
That, clarification be provided as to the reasons why in some instances such as the provisions
dealing with density standards at Chapter17.3 national guidelines have been rejected and
different standards are proposed There is a statutory obligation on a Local Authority to adopt a
Development Plan which is in so far as is practicable consistent with such national plans,
policies or strategies as the Minister shall determine relate to proper planning and sustainable
development. Why is it not practicable to adopt national standards where such are rejected?




                                                      19
Councillor Mary O’Shea
That the introduction to Chapter 17 should be amended by the deletion of the 4th paragraph
beginning with the sentence “Each planning application will be considered on its own merits.”
The wording of this paragraph may lead to inconsistency and gives rise to uncertainty. The
Development Plan must be clear and free of ambiguity so that there is no room for
misinterpretation.

Councillor Mary O’Shea
That the term “Schematic Masterplans”as referred to in Chapter3 at 3.3.1 be defined. The
terminology used in Chapter3.3.1 is confusing is it the intention that the Plans listed at 1to 7 in
3.3.1 will be adopted at some future stage? The relationship between these plans and those at
Appendix1 many of which appear outdated needs to be clarified.

Councillor Mary O’Shea
That the areas forming part of the 3 Economic Corridors provided as part of the Core Strategy in
Chapter 3 be more specifically defined and indicative uses or proposed zoning of these lands be
provided.

Councillor Mary O’Shea
That the Guidelines on Telecommunications Antennae at Appendix 16 be amended to(a) contain
an absolute prohibition on the location of such antennae in residential areas or beside a school
and (b)to take into consideration the past conduct of the Applicant in maintaining unauthorised
masts on site in contravention of the law, when considering any application of the erection of a
Telecommunications Mast

Councillor Mary O’Shea
This Council resolves to amend the third section ‘Public Transport Catchments’ of the Density
Standards chart at 17.3 of the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 – 2017 to omit:

“Minimum densities of 50 units per hectare will be promoted within catchments”

Councillor Mary O’Shea
This Council resolves that plot ratio standards for the following zoning designations be added to

In addition, this Council resolves to omit the categories ‘Embassy Residential’ and ‘Embassy
Office’ from Appendix 27 Land Use Definitions, leaving only the definition of ‘Embassy’:

“A building, or part thereof, or land used by a foreign government for diplomatic purposes or
conduct of relations between nations. The use may include a residential content for the staff of
the embassy which is ancillary to the embassy activities. The use does not include a foreign
trade delegation or trade office.”

In line with this motion this Council also resolves to remove the word “residential” from “Embassy
residential” in the Permissible Uses categories of Z1 and Z2 zoning designations, leaving only
the word “Embassy”.

This Council further resolves to remove all references from the Proposed Draft Development
Plan 2011- 2017 to the provision of office use in Z1 or Z2 designated areas.

Councillor Mary O’Shea
This Council resolves to re-instate Par. 15.10.4. of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-2011
in its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Development in Conservation Areas

All new buildings should complement and enhance the character and setting of conservation
areas. In considering proposals for development in conservation areas, it is policy to have
particular regard to:

   The effect of the proposed development on buildings and the surrounding environment, both
    natural and man-made
   The impact of development on the immediate streetscape in terms of compatibility of design,
    scale, height, plot width, roof treatment, materials, landscaping, mix and intensity of use
    proposed.

Development within conservation areas should be so designed so as not to constitute a visually
obtrusive or dominant form of development. New alterations and extensions should complement
existing buildings/structures in terms of design, external finishes, colour, texture,
windows/doors/roof/chimney/design and other details.

The Planning Authority discourages the use of uPVC or aluminium in windows, fascias and
doors in historic buildings that are not protected. Proposals for the application of cement render
to the external fabric of older buildings will not be encourages in conservation areas. In
assessing development proposals, the Planning Authority will seek the retention of mature trees
(those in good condition) which contribute to the character of conservation areas where
appropriate.

In conservation areas, no advertising material other than brass or stone name-plate type signs
will be permitted. On commercial properties leading into such areas, advertising will be severely
restricted, and shall only relate to the service provided in the premises. In dealing with all
advertising in conservation areas, the overriding consideration will be the enhancement and
protection of the essential visual qualities of the area. Where applications for security cameras
are proposed, every effort should be made to conceal the device and to employ best available
technology, including the smallest scale of device available, to ensure that the device would not
be obtrusive and would not detract from the integrity of the conservation area.

In conservation areas, the development of housing between the main house and the mews
building, particularly on corner sites, has had a detrimental effect on the visual and residential
amenities of these areas. Hence, backland development will not be permitted in conservation
areas where the development proposed would introduce a third line of building between the
main building and its associated mews.”



                                               24
Councillor Mary O’Shea
This Council resolves to reinstate in full Par.15.10.2 of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-
2011 in its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Development within the Curtilage and Setting of Protected Structures

In considering applications for development within the curtilage of a protected structure, the
Planning Authority shall have regard to the following:

   The protected status of the structure and the need to protect its special character
   The various elements of the structure which give the protected structure its special
    character and how these would be impacted on by the proposed development
   Proximity of any new development to the main protected structure and any other buildings of
    heritage value
   The design of the new development, which should relate to and complement the special
    character of the protected structure

An insistence on quality will be a foremost consideration when assessing proposals for
development within the curtilage of protected structures, with particular emphasis on siting,
building lines, proportions, scale, massing, height, roof treatment and materials. This does not
preclude innovative contemporary buildings which can contribute to the richness of the historical
context. Materials shall be appropriate to the locality and sympathetic to the existing buildings.
Development proposals should include an appraisal of the wider context of the site or structure.
This appraisal should examine the visual impact and design of the proposal and should address
issues including the grain of historic settings, sensitivity to scale and context, views and the
design of innovative quality architecture which would complement the setting of the protected
structure. The Planning Authority will seek to retain the traditional proportionate relationship in
scale between buildings, their returns, gardens and mews structures, and shall also seek to
retain gardens and mature trees (those in good condition) which contribute to the character of a
protected structure, as soft landscape.”

Councillor Mary O’Shea
This Council resolves to re-instate the following section of Par. 3.3.1 of the Dublin City
Development Plan 2005-2011 into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Built Heritage

To maintain and enhance the potential of protected structures and other buildings of
architectural/historic merit to contribute to the cultural character and identity of the place,
including identifying appropriate viable contemporary uses

New Development

   To establish the highest standards of contemporary architecture
   To create a strong visual connection with adjoining buildings in the streetscape
   To compliment the established pattern of development in the immediate environs, with
    particular regard to the established grain, scale, massing, materials and colour of the built
    fabric
   To determine an appropriate height, scale and massing to define the street or space




                                                25
   To reinforce the definition of the space/street by relating to an established common building
    line and enclosing the building stock
   All designs for new buildings including housing should be founded on a sustainable ethos,
    manifest and measurable in the use of solar and other energy resources. In this regard, the
    use of innovative materials and architectural designs to improve the environmental
    performance and energy efficiency of our buildings will be encouraged”

Councillor Mary O’Shea
This Council resolves to re-instate the following section of Par. 10.2.1 of the Dublin City
Development Plan 2005-2011 into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“The special value of conservation areas lies in the architectural design and scale of these areas
and is of sufficient importance to require special care in dealing with development proposals and
works by the private and public sector alike. Dublin City Council will thus seek to ensure that
development proposals within all conservation areas complement the character of the area,
including the setting of protected structures, and comply with development standards.”

Councillor Mary O’Shea
Remove the reference to rezoning of the Grangegorman lands.

Councillor Mary Freehill
With any development proposal on these lands, consideration for change of use will only be
given if the current institutional uses e.g. schools, are no longer needed by the community for
the foreseeable future.

Consideration should also be given to their potential to contribute to the development of a
strategic green network. PRIOR TO THE SUBMISSION OF AN APPLICATION FOR PLANNING
PERMISSION FOR any development, other than minor developments associated with the
existing use, the City Council will require the preparation and submission of a Schematic
Masterplan, this plan must be submitted for agreement by the Local Area Committee.

Where lands zoned Z15 are to be developed, a minimum of 25% of the site, incorporating
landscape features and the essential open character of the site, will be required to be retained
as accessible public open space.

In considering any proposal for development on lands subject to zoning objective Z15, other
than development directly related to the existing community and institutional uses, Dublin City
Council will require the preparation and submission of a master plan setting out a clear vision for
the future for the development of the entire land holding. In particular, the master plan will need
to identify the strategy for the provision of the 25% public open space requirements associated
with any residential development, to ensure a co-ordinated approach to the creation of high
quality new public open space facilities on these lands.

And, for the avoidance of doubt, at least 20% social and affordable housing requirement, as set
out in the Housing Strategy in this Plan, will apply in the development of lands subject to the Z15
zoning objective.

Zoning Objective Z15: Permissible Uses
ATM, Buildings for the health, safety and welfare of the public, Childcare facility, Community
facility, Cultural/recreational building and uses, Education, Medical and related consultants,
Open space, Place of public worship, Public service installation, Residential institution

assessing development proposals, the Planning Authority will seek the retention of mature trees
(those in good condition) which contribute to the character of conservation areas where
appropriate.

In conservation areas, no advertising material other than brass or stone name-plate type signs
will be permitted. On commercial properties leading into such areas, advertising will be severely
restricted, and shall only relate to the service provided in the premises. In dealing with all
advertising in conservation areas, the overriding consideration will be the enhancement and
protection of the essential visual qualities of the area. Where applications for security cameras
are proposed, every effort should be made to conceal the device and to employ best available
technology, including the smallest scale of device available, to ensure that the device would not
be obtrusive and would not detract from the integrity of the conservation area.

In conservation areas, the development of housing between the main house and the mews
building, particularly on corner sites, has had a detrimental effect on the visual and residential
amenities of these areas. Hence, backland development will not be permitted in conservation
areas where the development proposed would introduce a third line of building between the
main building and its associated mews.”

Councillor Christy Burke
This Council resolves to reinstate in full Par.15.10.2 of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-
2011 in its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Development within the Curtilage and Setting of Protected Structures

In considering applications for development within the curtilage of a protected structure, the
Planning Authority shall have regard to the following:

   The protected status of the structure and the need to protect its special character
   The various elements of the structure which give the protected structure its special
    character and how these would be impacted on by the proposed development
   Proximity of any new development to the main protected structure and any other buildings of
    heritage value


                                               35
   The design of the new development, which should relate to and complement the special
    character of the protected structure

An insistence on quality will be a foremost consideration when assessing proposals for
development within the curtilage of protected structures, with particular emphasis on siting,
building lines, proportions, scale, massing, height, roof treatment and materials. This does not
preclude innovative contemporary buildings which can contribute to the richness of the historical
context. Materials shall be appropriate to the locality and sympathetic to the existing buildings.
Development proposals should include an appraisal of the wider context of the site or structure.
This appraisal should examine the visual impact and design of the proposal and should address
issues including the grain of historic settings, sensitivity to scale and context, views and the
design of innovative quality architecture which would complement the setting of the protected
structure. The Planning Authority will seek to retain the traditional proportionate relationship in
scale between buildings, their returns, gardens and mews structures, and shall also seek to
retain gardens and mature trees (those in good condition) which contribute to the character of a
protected structure, as soft landscape.”

Councillor Christy Burke
This Council resolves to re-instate the following section of Par. 3.3.1 of the Dublin City

Councillor Christy Burke
Delete following from Appendix 25

Outdoor Advertising Structure
Dublin is a unique City where high quality architecture of all periods combines with a strongly
defined urban form of streets, squares and spaces to create a dynamic metropolis with a very
special sense of place. To build on Dublin’s physical assets and to generate an urban realm of
the highest possible quality this individual quality of place needs to be nurtured and enhanced
through creative, intelligent and co-ordinated intervention. Significant, unde utilised, value exists
in the public domain which if carefully harnessed can provide the means by which the City of
Dublin can generate public realm improvements without compromise to the character of the City.
These improvements could improve street architecture, surface improvements, enhanced
access to public services and a more attractive City. Such improvements can be facilitated
through a managed programme of on-street outdoor advertising.

Councillor Christy Burke

Appendix 25
Amend the following paragraphs:

Applications for new advertising structures on private and public lands (adjacent to primary
routes) will be considered having regard to the following:
 The geographical zone in which the site is located.
 The rationale for the proposed advertising structure.
 The concentration of existing advertising structures in the area.
 The design of the advertising panel and the use of high quality materials.
 The scale of the panel relative to the buildings and streets in which the advertising structure
    is to be located.
 Impact on the character of the street and the amenities of adjoining properties.
 Advertising panels will not be permitted where they interfere with the safety of pedestrians,
    the accessibility of the public footpath or roadway, the safety and free flow of traffic or if they
    obscure road signs. An independent stage 2, road safety audit shall be submitted with the
    application and an independent stage 3 road safety audit conducted at the time of erection.

Appendix 25
Delete the word “metropole” in following paragraph as it is advertising operator specific.

In order to achieve a coherent and standardised typology for outdoor display panels, Dublin City
Council has a clear preference for two different types of advertising panels: 6-sheet size
advertising panels and 8 sq.m metropole structures.

Councillor Christy Burke
Appendix 25
Insert before the paragraph reading “The provision of all advertising in the city centre will be
monitored and controlled in order to prevent the creation of undesirable visual clutter and to
protect environmentally sensitive areas and buildings” the phrase “Dublin City Council will
establish an Advertising Control Unit to oversee and enforce the following objectives”.

Councillor Christy Burke
Appendix 25
Motion to Delete “In exceptional circumstances applications for advertising display panels may
be considered in zones where advertising structures would not normally be permissible. In such
instances temporary display panels may be approved where they can be used for the screening
of buildings sites or land, which are aesthetically unsightly.”

And replace with:
“In exceptional circumstances applications for advertising display panels may be considered in
zones where advertising structures would not normally be permissible. In such instances
temporary display panels may be approved where they can be used for the screening of building
sites or land, which are aesthetically unsightly. Under no circumstances however will permanent
permission be granted and all such permissions will be time limited and the expiry date clearly
displayed on or next to the panel. Should active work cease at the building site for a period of
three months or more the panels must be removed. In the case of sighs or advertisements
erected without planning permission Dublin City Council will use powers section 209 of the
Planning and Development Act 2000 (or as may be amended) or the provisions of the Litter Act
to ensure removal.

in its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Development in Conservation Areas

All new buildings should complement and enhance the character and setting of conservation
areas. In considering proposals for development in conservation areas, it is policy to have
particular regard to:

   The effect of the proposed development on buildings and the surrounding environment, both

   The impact of development on the immediate streetscape in terms of compatibility of design,
    scale, height, plot width, roof treatment, materials, landscaping, mix and intensity of use
    proposed.

Development within conservation areas should be so designed so as not to constitute a visually
obtrusive or dominant form of development. New alterations and extensions should complement
existing buildings/structures in terms of design, external finishes, colour, texture,
windows/doors/roof/chimney/design and other details.

The Planning Authority discourages the use of uPVC or aluminium in windows, fascias and
doors in historic buildings that are not protected. Proposals for the application of cement render

S127 Energy Efficiency

In accordance with the Building Energy Rating (BER – calculated using the Dwelling Energy
Assessment Procedure, ref. www.sei.ie) target, it is a policy of this Development Plan to require
a collective (per sq.m) average BER rating of at least A3 for all new building developments
greater than 10 dwellings or greater than 1000 sq.m floor area for non-residential and mixed
developments.

Accordingly, it will be a requirement that all planning applications submitted to the planning
authority shall include a statement from a competent and qualified person certifying that the
proposed development conforms with the energy rating outlined above.

out whilst others have been included and the reader is at a loss to this.

Councillor Declan Flanagan
That DCC provide more clarify around how they arrived at formulating the list for Key Developing
areas in the city as mentioned in the document - .can DCC planning dept advise on same as
some areas have been omitted whilst others have been included

Councillor Declan Flanagan
That DCC provide more clarify around the whole area of the Transport 21 plan which is
mentioned on page 16 and the fact that it has been commented upon that it has been shelfed ,
following this reasoning what is the significance of mentioning it in the document in light of this
and where does this leave the document as a whole.

Councillor Declan Flanagan
I note on page 18 the reference to strengthening Dublin as the National retail destination. That
DCC provides further detail in the document of how it will be able to ensure that the city is
amenable to all shoppers and at the same time ensure that traffic throughout the city is moving
quickly during peak times, can you comment on same please and its not elaborated clearly in
the document

Councillor Declan Flanagan
With reference to page 18 and the mention of the city having 503 available hectares of zoned
and serviced land which has the capacity to provide 67,000 residential units. That DCC provide
the evidence of how these figures arrived at firstly and would they comment on how this can be
achieved by way of high density living such as 3-4 story apartments, please comment on same.

Councillor Declan Flanagan
That I wish to welcome Dublin city Councils approach to the Inner city which is mentioned on
page 27 of the document , it is very important to rejuvenate this area , however can DCC provide
a plan as to how it proposes to achieve this in light of the current situation, can DCCs strategy
be incorporated into the document.

Councillor Declan Flanagan
In terms of developing a local area plan for Liffey quays and a masterplan for croke park and the
Environs, can DCC provide a any timeframe in place for same and how does the council
propose to go about doing this in the current situation. Can a timeframe be included in the
document.

Councillor Declan Flanagan
That In terms of Key district centres, DCC provides a run down as to the types of commercial
and community services they would like to see in these centres as mentioned in page 29 of the
document, can you be specific on this.

Councillor Declan Flanagan
That In terms of Urban Density as mentioned on page 30, can DCC incorporate details of how
they wish to achive their goal in terms of developing the Dublin metropolitan area, please
provide a list of priorities going forward on the document.


                                                49
Councillor Declan Flanagan
That in reference to page 43, I wish to fully support the idea of an integrated public transport
network, however can the council provide details of any high level talks they may have had with
the stakeholders as yet, such as Dublin Bus, the Luas, Iarnród Eireann and how have these
talks progressed, is there any timeframe in place for making integrated public transport a reality
and can details of this be included on the document

Councillor Declan Flanagan
That I fully support the councils view on Cycling around the city as mentioned in page 44 of the
plan, however can DCC incorporate into the document how they are going to adequately find the
balance between the needs of cyclists with that of motorists.

Councillor Declan Flanagan
That the council says it wishes to implement a 30Kph speed limit inside the city centre (area
between the canals), This appears to be a huge area taking in more than the city centre, it is felt
that 30Kph speeds may be too low in some of these areas, can the Council comment further on
this and the impact it could have on those that use the road. Can Dublin City council remove the
section that says area between the canals and put the 30Kph speed limit only in the heart of the
city centre?

Councillor Declan Flanagan
Re page 47 and the note around Car parking in the city, can the council reduce its hourly car
parking charge in order to encourage more shoppers/motorists into the city?

ensure the full safety of the port tunnel.

Councillor Declan Flanagan
In light of recent floodings around Dublin such as Donnycarney and the council’s mention of
flood management on page 59, can the council outline the methods by which they will ensure
that flooding in the very prone areas will be drastically reduced or eliminated altogether?

Councillor Declan Flanagan
Can the council ensure that high rise density development from 8-16 stories does not occur in
Clonshaugh or the Northern fringe as it is against the wishes of he residents and would be out of
character with this area? Can Clonshaugh be removed from the list of “special areas” as laid
down in the document?

Councillor Declan Flanagan
The following is feedback from the Clonshaugh/riverside residents:
Already, as we suggested the new development plan was not presented to you last week in the
manner which citizens requested so as it would be clearly recognizable what had changed from
the old plan we had suggested as did many more people a plan that was colour coded showing
what is old, what is the same and what is new. Again officials in DCC did not follow this simple
request. At this basic level we think they try to confuse and as far as possible hide what they
really intend for the city.




                                                50
Councillor Declan Flanagan
That DCC make more reference to the need for tourism in the document, DCC needs to do more
to encourage tourism into the city, it needs to work more with Bord Fáilte and Dublin tourism in
order to achieve this, reference made to Tourism on page 88.

Councillor Declan Flanagan
That DCC makes clearer what it defines as protected structures as mentioned on page 90, can
more clarify be entered into the document surrounding this.

Councillor Declan Flanagan
That DCC make every effort to secure/ push for a metro be set aside so that eventually there
might be a possibility of one for Northside Development.

Councillor Declan Flanagan
That DCC liaise more with stateholders such as Dublin Bus towards providing a decent bus
service for the Clonshaugh area. A better bus service needs to be in place before any further
development can be considered in light of the current proposals.

This Council resolves to re-instate Par. 15.10.4. of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-2011
in its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Development in Conservation Areas

All new buildings should complement and enhance the character and setting of conservation
areas. In considering proposals for development in conservation areas, it is policy to have
particular regard to:



                                                  55
   The effect of the proposed development on buildings and the surrounding environment, both
    natural and man-made
   The impact of development on the immediate streetscape in terms of compatibility of design,
    scale, height, plot width, roof treatment, materials, landscaping, mix and intensity of use
    proposed.

Development within conservation areas should be so designed so as not to constitute a visually
obtrusive or dominant form of development. New alterations and extensions should complement
existing buildings/structures in terms of design, external finishes, colour, texture,
windows/doors/roof/chimney/design and other details.

The Planning Authority discourages the use of uPVC or aluminium in windows, fascias and
doors in historic buildings that are not protected. Proposals for the application of cement render
to the external fabric of older buildings will not be encourages in conservation areas. In
assessing development proposals, the Planning Authority will seek the retention of mature trees
(those in good condition) which contribute to the character of conservation areas where
appropriate.

In conservation areas, no advertising material other than brass or stone name-plate type signs
will be permitted. On commercial properties leading into such areas, advertising will be severely
restricted, and shall only relate to the service provided in the premises. In dealing with all
advertising in conservation areas, the overriding consideration will be the enhancement and
protection of the essential visual qualities of the area. Where applications for security cameras
are proposed, every effort should be made to conceal the device and to employ best available
technology, including the smallest scale of device available, to ensure that the device would not
be obtrusive and would not detract from the integrity of the conservation area.

In conservation areas, the development of housing between the main house and the mews
building, particularly on corner sites, has had a detrimental effect on the visual and residential
amenities of these areas. Hence, backland development will not be permitted in conservation
areas where the development proposed would introduce a third line of building between the
main building and its associated mews.”


Councillors Catherine Noone, Maria Parodi, Mannix Flynn
This Council resolves to reinstate in full Par.15.10.2 of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-
2011 in its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Development within the Curtilage and Setting of Protected Structures

In considering applications for development within the curtilage of a protected structure, the
Planning Authority shall have regard to the following:

   The protected status of the structure and the need to protect its special character
   The various elements of the structure which give the protected structure its special
    character and how these would be impacted on by the proposed development
   Proximity of any new development to the main protected structure and any other buildings of
    heritage value
   The design of the new development, which should relate to and complement the special
    character of the protected structure



                                               56
An insistence on quality will be a foremost consideration when assessing proposals for
development within the curtilage of protected structures, with particular emphasis on siting,
building lines, proportions, scale, massing, height, roof treatment and materials. This does not
preclude innovative contemporary buildings which can contribute to the richness of the historical
context. Materials shall be appropriate to the locality and sympathetic to the existing buildings.
Development proposals should include an appraisal of the wider context of the site or structure.
This appraisal should examine the visual impact and design of the proposal and should address
issues including the grain of historic settings, sensitivity to scale and context, views and the
design of innovative quality architecture which would complement the setting of the protected
structure. The Planning Authority will seek to retain the traditional proportionate relationship in
scale between buildings, their returns, gardens and mews structures, and shall also seek to
retain gardens and mature trees (those in good condition) which contribute to the character of a
protected structure, as soft landscape.”

and is of sufficient importance to require special care in dealing with development proposals and
works by the private and public sector alike. Dublin City Council will thus seek to ensure that
development proposals within all conservation areas complement the character of the area,

This Council resolves to re-instate Par. 15.10.4. of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-2011
in its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Development in Conservation Areas

All new buildings should complement and enhance the character and setting of conservation
areas. In considering proposals for development in conservation areas, it is policy to have
particular regard to:

      The effect of the proposed development on buildings and the surrounding environment,
       both natural and man-made
      The impact of development on the immediate streetscape in terms of compatibility of
       design, scale, height, plot width, roof treatment, materials, landscaping, mix and intensity
       of use proposed.

Development within conservation areas should be so designed so as not to constitute a visually
obtrusive or dominant form of development. New alterations and extensions should complement
existing buildings/structures in terms of design, external finishes, colour, texture,
windows/doors/roof/chimney/design and other details.

The Planning Authority discourages the use of uPVC or aluminium in windows, fascias and
doors in historic buildings that are not protected. Proposals for the application of cement render
to the external fabric of older buildings will not be encourages in conservation areas. In



                                               61
assessing development proposals, the Planning Authority will seek the retention of mature trees
(those in good condition) which contribute to the character of conservation areas where
appropriate.

In conservation areas, no advertising material other than brass or stone name-plate type signs
will be permitted. On commercial properties leading into such areas, advertising will be severely
restricted, and shall only relate to the service provided in the premises. In dealing with all
advertising in conservation areas, the overriding consideration will be the enhancement and
protection of the essential visual qualities of the area. Where applications for security cameras
are proposed, every effort should be made to conceal the device and to employ best available
technology, including the smallest scale of device available, to ensure that the device would not
be obtrusive and would not detract from the integrity of the conservation area.

In conservation areas, the development of housing between the main house and the mews
building, particularly on corner sites, has had a detrimental effect on the visual and residential
amenities of these areas. Hence, backland development will not be permitted in conservation
areas where the development proposed would introduce a third line of building between the
main building and its associated mews.”

Councillors Mary Freehill, Dermot Lacey, Eoghan Murphy, Jim O’Callaghan, Oisín Quinn,
Edie Wynne.
This Council resolves to reinstate in full Par.15.10.2 of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-
2011 in its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Development within the Curtilage and Setting of Protected Structures

In considering applications for development within the curtilage of a protected structure, the
Planning Authority shall have regard to the following:

      The protected status of the structure and the need to protect its special character
      The various elements of the structure which give the protected structure its special
       character and how these would be impacted on by the proposed development
      Proximity of any new development to the main protected structure and any other
       buildings of heritage value
      The design of the new development, which should relate to and complement the special
       character of the protected structure

An insistence on quality will be a foremost consideration when assessing proposals for
development within the curtilage of protected structures, with particular emphasis on siting,
building lines, proportions, scale, massing, height, roof treatment and materials. This does not
preclude innovative contemporary buildings which can contribute to the richness of the historical
context. Materials shall be appropriate to the locality and sympathetic to the existing buildings.
Development proposals should include an appraisal of the wider context of the site or structure.
This appraisal should examine the visual impact and design of the proposal and should address
issues including the grain of historic settings, sensitivity to scale and context, views and the
design of innovative quality architecture which would complement the setting of the protected
structure. The Planning Authority will seek to retain the traditional proportionate relationship in
scale between buildings, their returns, gardens and mews structures, and shall also seek to
retain gardens and mature trees (those in good condition) which contribute to the character of a
protected structure, as soft landscape.”

This Council resolves to re-instate the following section of Par. 3.3.1 of the Dublin City
Development Plan 2005-2011 into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Built Heritage

To maintain and enhance the potential of protected structures and other buildings of
architectural/historic merit to contribute to the cultural character and identity of the place,
including identifying appropriate viable contemporary uses

New Development

      To establish the highest standards of contemporary architecture
      To create a strong visual connection with adjoining buildings in the streetscape
      To compliment the established pattern of development in the immediate environs, with
       particular regard to the established grain, scale, massing, materials and colour of the
       built fabric
      To determine an appropriate height, scale and massing to define the street or space
      To reinforce the definition of the space/street by relating to an established common
       building line and enclosing the building stock
      All designs for new buildings including housing should be founded on a sustainable
       ethos, manifest and measurable in the use of solar and other energy resources. In this
       regard, the use of innovative materials and architectural designs to improve the
       environmental performance and energy efficiency of our buildings will be encouraged”

Development Plan 2005-2011 into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

and is of sufficient importance to require special care in dealing with development proposals and
works by the private and public sector alike. Dublin City Council will thus seek to ensure that
development proposals within all conservation areas complement the character of the area,
including the setting of protected structures, and comply with development standards.”

                                                 71
   The design principles which have been applied to the site and how these will be translated

     to the development in terms of layout, density, scale, landscape, visual appearance and
     impact on amenities, including sunlight.
 Drawings, prospectus and photomontages to demonstrate how the approach has been
     applied on the site.”

Councillor Cieran Perry
This Council resolves to re-instate Par. 15.10.4. of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-2011
in its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Development in Conservation Areas

All new buildings should complement and enhance the character and setting of conservation
areas. In considering proposals for development in conservation areas, it is policy to have
particular regard to:

   The effect of the proposed development on buildings and the surrounding environment, both
    natural and man-made
   The impact of development on the immediate streetscape in terms of compatibility of design,
    scale, height, plot width, roof treatment, materials, landscaping, mix and intensity of use
    proposed.

Development within conservation areas should be so designed so as not to constitute a visually
obtrusive or dominant form of development. New alterations and extensions should complement
existing buildings/structures in terms of design, external finishes, colour, texture,
windows/doors/roof/chimney/design and other details.

The Planning Authority discourages the use of uPVC or aluminium in windows, fascias and
doors in historic buildings that are not protected. Proposals for the application of cement render
to the external fabric of older buildings will not be encourages in conservation areas. In
assessing development proposals, the Planning Authority will seek the retention of mature trees
(those in good condition) which contribute to the character of conservation areas where
appropriate.

In conservation areas, no advertising material other than brass or stone name-plate type signs
will be permitted. On commercial properties leading into such areas, advertising will be severely
restricted, and shall only relate to the service provided in the premises. In dealing with all
advertising in conservation areas, the overriding consideration will be the enhancement and
protection of the essential visual qualities of the area. Where applications for security cameras


                                               72
are proposed, every effort should be made to conceal the device and to employ best available
technology, including the smallest scale of device available, to ensure that the device would not
be obtrusive and would not detract from the integrity of the conservation area.

In conservation areas, the development of housing between the main house and the mews
building, particularly on corner sites, has had a detrimental effect on the visual and residential
amenities of these areas. Hence, backland development will not be permitted in conservation
areas where the development proposed would introduce a third line of building between the
main building and its associated mews.”

Councillor Cieran Perry
This Council resolves to reinstate in full Par.15.10.2 of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-
2011 in its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Development within the Curtilage and Setting of Protected Structures

In considering applications for development within the curtilage of a protected structure, the
Planning Authority shall have regard to the following:

   The protected status of the structure and the need to protect its special character
   The various elements of the structure which give the protected structure its special
    character and how these would be impacted on by the proposed development
   Proximity of any new development to the main protected structure and any other buildings of
    heritage value
   The design of the new development, which should relate to and complement the special
    character of the protected structure

An insistence on quality will be a foremost consideration when assessing proposals for
development within the curtilage of protected structures, with particular emphasis on siting,
building lines, proportions, scale, massing, height, roof treatment and materials. This does not
preclude innovative contemporary buildings which can contribute to the richness of the historical
context. Materials shall be appropriate to the locality and sympathetic to the existing buildings.
Development proposals should include an appraisal of the wider context of the site or structure.
This appraisal should examine the visual impact and design of the proposal and should address
issues including the grain of historic settings, sensitivity to scale and context, views and the
design of innovative quality architecture which would complement the setting of the protected
structure. The Planning Authority will seek to retain the traditional proportionate relationship in
scale between buildings, their returns, gardens and mews structures, and shall also seek to
retain gardens and mature trees (those in good condition) which contribute to the character of a
protected structure, as soft landscape.”

Councillor Cieran Perry
This Council resolves to re-instate the following section of Par. 3.3.1 of the Dublin City
Development Plan 2005-2011 into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Built Heritage

To maintain and enhance the potential of protected structures and other buildings of
architectural/historic merit to contribute to the cultural character and identity of the place,
including identifying appropriate viable contemporary uses



                                                73
New Development

   To establish the highest standards of contemporary architecture
   To create a strong visual connection with adjoining buildings in the streetscape
   To compliment the established pattern of development in the immediate environs, with
    particular regard to the established grain, scale, massing, materials and colour of the built
    fabric
   To determine an appropriate height, scale and massing to define the street or space
   To reinforce the definition of the space/street by relating to an established common building
    line and enclosing the building stock
   All designs for new buildings including housing should be founded on a sustainable ethos,
    manifest and measurable in the use of solar and other energy resources. In this regard, the
    use of innovative materials and architectural designs to improve the environmental
    performance and energy efficiency of our buildings will be encouraged”

Councillor Cieran Perry
This Council resolves to re-instate the following section of Par. 10.2.1 of the Dublin City
Development Plan 2005-2011 into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“The special value of conservation areas lies in the architectural design and scale of these areas
and is of sufficient importance to require special care in dealing with development proposals and
works by the private and public sector alike. Dublin City Council will thus seek to ensure that
development proposals within all conservation areas complement the character of the area,
including the setting of protected structures, and comply with development standards.”

Councillor Cieran Perry
Remove the reference to rezoning of the Grangegorman lands.

Councillor Oisín Quinn
This Council resolves to keep the Z2 Conservation Area zoning for the terrace of fishermen's
cottages known as Llandaff Terrace, Merrion Road, Dublin 4.

Councillor Cieran Perry
Section 3.2.3.2
Reference is made to the development plan placing an emphasis on institutional lands being
used as future development sites. Please insert a statement that all developments within these
sites “will be subject to planning controls agreed by the city council and that all sites will contain
a community gain clause”. These guidelines are not contained within the draft document.

Councillor Cieran Perry
Section 4.4.1.1
SCO4: omit the wording “significant long term” from the section. Include the following text within
this section “Dublin City Council will implement the Derelict Sites Act to its full legal force to
speed up the redevelopment of these sites for the betterment of our city.”

Councillor Cieran Perry
SC8      change text to read “…..sustainable densities of development which must include the
protection of surrounding residents and communities”




                                                 74
Councillor Cieran Perry
SC11 add in above addendum “These sustainable densities will include due consideration for
the protection of surrounding residents, households and community.”

Councillor Cieran Perry
Section 4.4.4.1
Delete paragraph 6 of this section because the implication is that heights of up to 8 storeys are
standard within the city and that it is DCC policy to retain this height. This is factually incorrect. It
is an incorrect representation of the prevailing height within Dublin.

Councillor Cieran Perry
SC15: delete reference to “and medium rise” as Dublin is predominantly a low rise city.

Health Unit by providing a 24 hour, 7 day a week service.”

Councillor Cieran Perry
With reference to Figure 13 under the Culture section, I wish to draw your attention to the
obvious deficit of cultural sites on the north side of the city. I can only assume that the failure to
recognise the significance of the GPO, O’Connell Street and many other historical and cultural
sites is a reflection on the poor quality of work put into this section. The inclusion of Temple Bar
as a cultural centre reflects upon the shallow vision of the City management. It is essential that
the poor quality of this section is rectified and that the importance of Dublin as a genuine cultural
centre is recognised.

It is with the above in mind that I suggest that Dublin City Council select a chosen day to be
designated “Dublin Day” and that everything that we cherish and celebrate about our Capital city
be recognised. A day which celebrates everything that is positive about our people, our
communities, our history, our arts and everything else that makes Dublin a wonderful place. This
event will promote Dublin on an international level using the talents of our people and
communities.

Councillor Cieran Perry
8.4.8     HR10: delete all references within the draft plan to “Creative Dublin Alliance” as the

Delete reference to ceiling height “2.5 m” and replace with “2.7 m” as per guidelines contained
within the Dublin City Council 2Successful Apartment Living” document

Councillor Cieran Perry
Reference is made to consideration being given to acceptance of financial contributions in lieu of
provision of public open spaces (paragraph 6) by developers. I propose that any decision on this
issue is “subject to the agreed approval of local councillors” and that it should be a reserved
function of the Local Area Committee elected representatives.

Councillor Cieran Perry
Section 17.40.13
Residential car parking in apartments

Delete paragraph 3 and the proposed opt out clauses. Car parking is a major concern and this
section is open to exploitation.

Councillor Cieran Perry
Social Housing Leasing
In relation to the provision of new capital to lease vacant property, it is essential that we delete
all reference to “helping absorb some of the oversupply in the market.” It is not the role of Dublin
City Council to facilitate commercial developers who have overestimated the housing market.
Dublin City Council should not become paying tenants of discredited developers

Councillor Cieran Perry

residential” in the Permissible Uses categories of Z1 and Z2 zoning designations, leaving only
the word “Embassy”.

This Council further resolves to remove all references from the Proposed Draft Development
Plan 2011- 2017 to the provision of office use in Z1 or Z2 designated areas.

Councillor Ray McAdam
This Council resolves to re-instate Par. 15.10.4. of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-2011
in its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Development in Conservation Areas

All new buildings should complement and enhance the character and setting of conservation
areas. In considering proposals for development in conservation areas, it is policy to have
particular regard to:



                                                  81
    ·       The effect of the proposed development on buildings and the surrounding
    environment, both natural and man-made
    ·       The impact of development on the immediate streetscape in terms of compatibility of
    design, scale, height, plot width, roof treatment, materials, landscaping, mix and intensity of
    use proposed.

Development within conservation areas should be so designed so as not to constitute a visually
obtrusive or dominant form of development. New alterations and extensions should complement
existing buildings/structures in terms of design, external finishes, colour, texture,
windows/doors/roof/chimney/design and other details.

The Planning Authority discourages the use of uPVC or aluminium in windows, fascias and
doors in historic buildings that are not protected. Proposals for the application of cement render
to the external fabric of older buildings will not be encourages in conservation areas. In
assessing development proposals, the Planning Authority will seek the retention of mature trees
(those in good condition) which contribute to the character of conservation areas where
appropriate.

In conservation areas, no advertising material other than brass or stone name-plate type signs
will be permitted. On commercial properties leading into such areas, advertising will be severely
restricted, and shall only relate to the service provided in the premises. In dealing with all
advertising in conservation areas, the overriding consideration will be the enhancement and
protection of the essential visual qualities of the area. Where applications for security cameras
are proposed, every effort should be made to conceal the device and to employ best available
technology, including the smallest scale of device available, to ensure that the device would not
be obtrusive and would not detract from the integrity of the conservation area.

In conservation areas, the development of housing between the main house and the mews
building, particularly on corner sites, has had a detrimental effect on the visual and residential
amenities of these areas. Hence, backland development will not be permitted in conservation
areas where the development proposed would introduce a third line of building between the
main building and its associated mews.”

Councillor Ray McAdam
This Council resolves to reinstate in full Par.15.10.2 of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-
2011 in its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Development within the Curtilage and Setting of Protected Structures

In considering applications for development within the curtilage of a protected structure, the
Planning Authority shall have regard to the following:

    ·      The protected status of the structure and the need to protect its special character
    ·      The various elements of the structure which give the protected structure its special
    character and how these would be impacted on by the proposed development
    ·      Proximity of any new development to the main protected structure and any other
    buildings of heritage value
    ·      The design of the new development, which should relate to and complement the
    special character of the protected structure




                                               82
An insistence on quality will be a foremost consideration when assessing proposals for
development within the curtilage of protected structures, with particular emphasis on siting,
building lines, proportions, scale, massing, height, roof treatment and materials. This does not
preclude innovative contemporary buildings which can contribute to the richness of the historical
context. Materials shall be appropriate to the locality and sympathetic to the existing buildings.
Development proposals should include an appraisal of the wider context of the site or structure.
This appraisal should examine the visual impact and design of the proposal and should address
issues including the grain of historic settings, sensitivity to scale and context, views and the
design of innovative quality architecture which would complement the setting of the protected
structure. The Planning Authority will seek to retain the traditional proportionate relationship in
scale between buildings, their returns, gardens and mews structures, and shall also seek to
retain gardens and mature trees (those in good condition) which contribute to the character of a
protected structure, as soft landscape.”

Councillor Ray McAdam
This Council resolves to re-instate the following section of Par. 3.3.1 of the Dublin City
Development Plan 2005-2011 into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Built Heritage

To maintain and enhance the potential of protected structures and other buildings of
architectural/historic merit to contribute to the cultural character and identity of the place,
including identifying appropriate viable contemporary uses

New Development

    ·        To establish the highest standards of contemporary architecture
    ·        To create a strong visual connection with adjoining buildings in the streetscape
    ·        To compliment the established pattern of development in the immediate environs,
    with particular regard to the established grain, scale, massing, materials and colour of the
    built fabric
    ·        To determine an appropriate height, scale and massing to define the street or space
    ·        To reinforce the definition of the space/street by relating to an established common
    building line and enclosing the building stock
    ·        All designs for new buildings including housing should be founded on a sustainable
    ethos, manifest and measurable in the use of solar and other energy resources. In this
    regard, the use of innovative materials and architectural designs to improve the
    environmental performance and energy efficiency of our buildings will be encouraged”

Councillor Ray McAdam
This Council resolves to re-instate the following section of Par. 10.2.1 of the Dublin City
Development Plan 2005-2011 into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“The special value of conservation areas lies in the architectural design and scale of these areas
and is of sufficient importance to require special care in dealing with development proposals and
works by the private and public sector alike. Dublin City Council will thus seek to ensure that
development proposals within all conservation areas complement the character of the area,
including the setting of protected structures, and comply with development standards.”

the Economic Action Plan for the Dublin City Region.

The role of cities and planning and development policies are increasingly critical factors in
economic development, employment growth and prosperity. Sustainable development has
economic, environmental and social aspects; there is a need for planning to be responsive to
changing economic circumstances and to balance complex sets of economic, environmental or
social goals. The Development Plan and management system are crucial in promoting economic
development and employment growth. The following criteria will be an integral tool to aid
assessments of strategic planning and development opportunities:
1. Do the density, scale and quality of the development optimise the consolidation of the City
Region?
2. Is there significant regeneration benefit within the area, and/or the potential for follow-on
future development?
3. Does the development maximise the economic return on public investment in infrastructure?
4. Will the development support an existing or create a new tourist attraction within the City
Region?
5. Does the development support the development of agglomeration economies and clustering?
6. Does the development contribute to the achievement of other strategic objectives for the City
Region such as enterprise and employment creation?
7. Does it contribute positively to the image and identity of a Creative City Region?
8. Does it contribute to an enhancement of quality of life?


                                                 91
9. Does it lead to increased market competition in the area?
10. Does it contribute to or increase the competitiveness of the City Region?

Councillor Naoise O’Muiri
This Council resolves to re-instate Par. 15.10.4. of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-2011
in its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

Development in Conservation Areas
All new buildings should complement and enhance the character and setting of conservation
areas. In considering proposals for development in conservation areas, it is policy to have
particular regard to:
        The effect of the proposed development on buildings and the surrounding environment,
both natural and man-made
        The impact of development on the immediate streetscape in terms of compatibility of
design, scale, height, plot width, roof treatment, materials, landscaping, mix and intensity of use
proposed.

Development within conservation areas should be so designed so as not to constitute a visually
obtrusive or dominant form of development. New alterations and extensions should complement
existing buildings/structures in terms of design, external finishes, colour, texture,
windows/doors/roof/chimney/design and other details.

The Planning Authority discourages the use of uPVC or aluminium in windows, fascias and
doors in historic buildings that are not protected. Proposals for the application of cement render
to the external fabric of older buildings will not be encourages in conservation areas. In
assessing development proposals, the Planning Authority will seek the retention of mature trees
(those in good condition) which contribute to the character of conservation areas where
appropriate.

In conservation areas, no advertising material other than brass or stone name-plate type signs
will be permitted. On commercial properties leading into such areas, advertising will be
severely restricted, and shall only relate to the service provided in the premises. In dealing with
all advertising in conservation areas, the overriding consideration will be the enhancement and
protection of the essential visual qualities of the area. Where applications for security cameras
are proposed, every effort should be made to conceal the device and to employ best available
technology, including the smallest scale of device available, to ensure that the device would not
be obtrusive and would not detract from the integrity of the conservation area.

In conservation areas, the development of housing between the main house and the mews
building, particularly on corner sites, has had a detrimental effect on the visual and residential
amenities of these areas. Hence, backland development will not be permitted in conservation
areas where the development proposed would introduce a third line of building between the
main building and its associated mews.

Councillor Naoise O’Muiri
This Council resolves to re-instate the following section of Par. 3.3.1 of the Dublin City
Development Plan 2005-2011 into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

Built Heritage

To maintain and enhance the potential of protected structures and other buildings of
architectural/historic merit to contribute to the cultural character and identity of the place,
including identifying appropriate viable contemporary uses

New Development
To establish the highest standards of contemporary architecture
To create a strong visual connection with adjoining buildings in the streetscape
To compliment the established pattern of development in the immediate environs, with particular
regard to the established grain, scale, massing, materials and colour of the built fabric
To determine an appropriate height, scale and massing to define the street or space
To reinforce the definition of the space/street by relating to an established common building line
and enclosing the building stock

All designs for new buildings including housing should be founded on a sustainable ethos,
manifest and measurable in the use of solar and other energy resources. In this regard, the use

Councillor Michael Conaghan
Fostering Dublin’s Character and Culture
It is agreed that this section of the Development Plan should include more specific provision for
the conservation of key artefacts, structures, creations etc. from within the City’s milling, railway
and canal experience.

In this context the conservation of the old mill at Rowerstown Lane (Kilmainham) with its roots in
the medieval period, should become a specific objective of the new Development Plan. Its
conservation and development and future use should be guided by the conservation plan for it
drawn up by the Belfast based Industrial Archaeology consultants.

Councillor Michael Conaghan
Pre-Georgian Heritage
Dublin City Council has a significant heritage of pre-Georgian buildings which have largely
remained unknown and unappreciated. This heritage of “gabled” street architecture was
responsible for the growth and development of many of the streets of the City and was as
impressive and valuable as the street architecture of the Georgian and Victorian eras that
succeeded it. It is agreed that City Council undertake a survey and a study of the remains of this
“gabled tradition” and assist the conservation, recording and in some cases the restoration of
representative examples of these houses so as to prevent this legacy being lost.

Councillor Michael Conaghan
Creating Good Neighbourhoods and Successful Communities
The Draft Development Plan mentions many of the factors and elements that combine to create
“successful communities”; however there is no reference to the role of policing. In this regard
therefore it is agreed by City Council that in an era of Joint Policing clear reference is made in
the Development Plan to City Council’s legal and moral responsibility now for contributing to
“safety and security” at community level.

Councillor Michael Conaghan
Providing Quality Homes in a Compact City
In the Draft Development Plan reference is made to Apartment Dwelling becoming the norm in
the “Compact City” and several references are made to the criteria for “size, space, dual aspect
etc.” in the development and construction of appropriate apartment dwellings but no mention is
made of “apartment management”. To address this serious omission, City Council agrees to
include in the Development Plan, clear reference to the development and implementation of
appropriate and effective apartment management strategies. In this regard the Plan should
include reference to successful templates of apartment management especially those in
countries with a long history of apartment dwelling and successful apartment management
structures and systems.

Councillor Michael Conaghan
The Proposed Heuston / Museum Quarter
The Heuston / Museum Quarter should be re-imagined and expanded to include all of
Kilmainham / Inchicore so as to take in all of this area’s cluster of nationally and locally
significant cultural sites. The Development Plan should seek to foster the development of this
expanded Cultural Quarter as a more densely populated live / work district, with increased
linkages and permeability connecting the disparate parts and transforming under-utilised
amenity resources like the grounds of the Royal Hospital in Kilmainham into centre-pieces of a
vibrant city quarter, at all times having regard to the grain and character of the area.



                                                108
Councillor Michael Conaghan
Revitalising the City’s Economy
In this chapter, more reference should be made to the potential of Arts and Cultural spheres of
activity, especially those areas where the City has a deep and indigenous talent and world wide
renown, music, literature, theatre and increasingly the contemporary visual arts etc. as a means
of stimulating the City’s economy. To this should be added film making and high-end fashion
products. In this regard, a City “quarter” should be established where young, creative individuals
and craftspeople are given space and other necessary supports so as to bring forward a new
generation of creative production.

Councillor Mary Fitzpatrick
This Council resolves that the following be omitted from Par 17.6.1 of the Proposed Draft
Development Plan 2011 – 2017:

“All proposed buildings less than mid-rise in height (25m) but more than two storeys (6m) higher
than the prevailing height in the vicinity shall be accompanied by an Urban Design Statement
outlining:
The context indicating a site and area analysis.
The design principles which have been applied to the site and how these will be translated to the
development in terms of layout, density, scale, landscape, visual appearance and impact on
amenities, including sunlight.
Drawings, prospectus and photomontages to demonstrate how the approach has been applied
on the site.”

and replaced with:
“All proposed buildings less than mid-rise in height (18m) but more than one storey (3m) higher
than the prevailing height in the vicinity shall be accompanied by an Urban Design Statement
outlining:
The context indicating a site and area analysis.
The design principles which have been applied to the site and how these will be translated to the
development in terms of layout, density, scale, landscape, visual appearance and impact on
amenities, including sunlight.
Drawings, prospectus and photomontages to demonstrate how the approach has
been applied on the site.”

Councillor Mary Fitzpatrick
This Council resolves to re-instate Par. 15.10.4. of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-2011
in its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Development in Conservation Areas
All new buildings should complement and enhance the character and setting of conservation
areas. In considering proposals for development in conservation areas, it is policy to have
particular regard to:

The effect of the proposed development on buildings and the surrounding environment, both
natural and man-made
The impact of development on the immediate streetscape in terms of compatibility of design,
scale, height, plot width, roof treatment, materials, landscaping, mix and intensity of use
proposed.




                                               109
Development within conservation areas should be so designed so as not to constitute a visually
obtrusive or dominant form of development. New alterations and extensions should complement
existing buildings/structures in terms of design, external finishes, colour, texture,
windows/doors/roof/chimney/design and other details.

The Planning Authority discourages the use of uPVC or aluminium in windows, fascias and
doors in historic buildings that are not protected. Proposals for the application of cement render
to the external fabric of older buildings will not be encourages in conservation areas. In
assessing development proposals, the Planning Authority will seek the retention of mature trees
(those in good condition) which contribute to the character of conservation areas where
appropriate.

In conservation areas, no advertising material other than brass or stone name-plate type signs
will be permitted. On commercial properties leading into such areas, advertising will be severely
restricted, and shall only relate to the service provided in the premises. In dealing with all
advertising in conservation areas, the overriding consideration will be the enhancement and
protection of the essential visual qualities of the area. Where applications for security cameras
are proposed, every effort should be made to conceal the device and to employ best available
technology, including the smallest scale of device available, to ensure that the device would not
be obtrusive and would not detract from the integrity of the conservation area.

In conservation areas, the development of housing between the main house and the mews
building, particularly on corner sites, has had a detrimental effect on the visual and residential
amenities of these areas. Hence, backland development will not be permitted in conservation
areas where the development proposed would introduce a third line of building between the
main building and its associated mews.”

Councillor Mary Fitzpatrick
This Council resolves to reinstate in full Par.15.10.2 of the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-
2011 in its entirety into the Proposed Draft Development Plan 2011 - 2017:

“Development within the Curtilage and Setting of Protected Structures

In considering applications for development within the curtilage of a protected structure, the
Planning Authority shall have regard to the following:

The protected status of the structure and the need to protect its special character
The various elements of the structure which give the protected structure its special character
and how these would be impacted on by the proposed development
Proximity of any new development to the main protected structure and any other buildings of
heritage value
The design of the new development, which should relate to and complement the special
character of the protected structure

An insistence on quality will be a foremost consideration when assessing proposals for
development within the curtilage of protected structures, with particular emphasis on siting,
building lines, proportions, scale, massing, height, roof treatment and materials. This does not
preclude innovative contemporary buildings which can contribute to the richness of the historical
context. Materials shall be appropriate to the locality and sympathetic to the existing buildings.
Development proposals should include an appraisal of the wider context of the site or structure.
This appraisal should examine the visual impact and design of the proposal and should address


                                               110
issues including the grain of historic settings, sensitivity to scale and context, views and the
design of innovative quality architecture which would complement the setting of the protected
structure. The Planning Authority will seek to retain the traditional proportionate relationship in
scale between buildings, their returns, gardens and mews structures, and shall also seek to
retain gardens and mature trees (those in good condition) which contribute to the character of a
protected structure, as soft landscape.”
