The South Dublin County Development Plan 2022-2028 was made on 22nd June 2022 and came into effect on 3rd August 2022. 

For more details go to

The South Dublin County Development Plan sets out the framework to guide future development with the focus placed on the places we live, the places we work, and how we interact and move between these places while protecting our environment. The aim is to progress to a more sustainable development pattern for South Dublin in the immediate and long-term future up to 2040 and beyond.

A draft Ministerial Direction, published with the Plan documents, has issued on identified objectives within the plan relating to data centres and an area of employment zoning at Greenogue. Those areas subject to the draft Ministerial Direction do not come into effect with the rest of the Plan.

The South Dublin County Development Plan 2022 - 2028 will be available for inspection (and will be kept available for inspection accordingly) at the following locations, excluding Bank Holidays, from Wednesday 3rd August 2022:

  • County Hall, Tallaght during normal opening hours
  • Civic Offices, Clondalkin during normal opening hours

In due course, following the finalisation of the Ministerial Direction process, printed copies of the County Development Plan will also be made available for inspection at all branches of South Dublin County Libraries.

Copies of the Plan will be available to purchase in due course.
