South Dublin County Council is the designated ‘Development Agency’ for the Adamstown Strategic Development Zone (SDZ). As Development Agency, the County Council prepared a Planning Scheme for Adamstown in accordance with the requirements of the Planning and Development Act, 2000 (as amended). The approved Planning Scheme sets out a detailed framework for the development up to 10,000 new homes in Adamstown, along with supporting infrastructure and facilities. The Development Agency is now responsible for ensuring that the development of Adamstown takes place in accordance with the details of the approved Planning Scheme.
South Dublin County Council has set up the Adamstown Project Team, based in the Councils Planning Department, to manage and oversee implementation of the Scheme.
This section of the website provides detailed information on the Planning and Development of Adamstown. It includes a link to the approved Planning Scheme, 2003 (as amended by variation), all planning applications, monthly progress updates on development, publications and minutes of Adamstown Steering Group meetings.
