Dublin City Council is currently preparing the new City Development Plan 2016 – 2022. This Plan will set out a shared vision and direction for the future development of our city over the next six years.
We are encouraging people, communities and organisations to read through the Draft Plan and make observations. We encourage you to make your submission early. The deadline for submission is December 11th, 2015.
Public participation at this early stage is vital and we welcome your views. Please tell us what you think to help us plan for the future of Dublin as a great city to live in, do business and enjoy.
