Clonburris will be an exemplar of best practice in sustainable development, place-making and urban design. It will realise the full potential of its high accessibility by public transport, its canal-side location, and its critical mass. This will be a new eco-district that will set new standards for environmental urban expansion and act as a focus for new mixed-use development in the Greater Dublin Area.
South Dublin County Council has prepared a Plan for the development of the lands at Clonburris near Clondalkin. The proposed Plan comprises both a Strategic Development Zone Planning Scheme and a Local Area Plan. The boundary of the Plan area can be viewed here. A Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) has been prepared in respect of the proposed Plan.
The Clonburris Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) Planning Scheme, approved by An Bord Pleanala 5th November 2008, will provide a framework for the future development of the Clonburris area.
