There are important aviation related designations that are associated with the safe operation of the Airport that apply to the LAP lands. All development proposals shall have regard to the following designations:

Dublin Airport’s Public Safety Zones as set out in the Fingal Development Plan 2017-2023 show an Inner Public Safety Zone and an Outer Public Safety Zone in accordance with the guidance set out in the Environmental Resources Management [ERM] Report 2005. Specifically, this ERM Report provides guidance on the potential use and scale of development that may be considered appropriate within these zones. The Irish Aviation Authority Obstacle Limitation Safeguarding Map sets out the guidance on the type and height of any structures that may be developed at Dublin Airport and its environs.

Fingal County Council will continue to be advised by the relevant statutory bodies regarding the effects of proposed development on the safety of aircraft navigation through the development management process.


Control the type and height of any structures that may be developed in the environs of the Airport (in consultation with the Irish Aviation Authority) in accordance with the Obstacle Limitation Requirements of Regulation (EU) No 139/2014 (EASA Certification Specifications), previously required under ICAO Annex 14 and which are depicted on the aerodrome operator’s safeguarding map.
