9. Environment & Community
This chapter considers the likely direct and indirect effects of the future development of Dublin Airport on the local environment and communities surrounding the Airport. It is important that this is seen in the context of actions being taken on a wider scale in the Fingal Development Plan 2017 – 2023 to address the impacts of development at Dublin Airport on noise, water and drainage, air quality, heritage including archaeology, architectural and natural heritage.
It is strategic policy of Fingal County Council as set out in the Fingal Development Plan 2017 – 2023 to:
Safeguard the current and future operational, safety, and technical requirements of Dublin Airport and provide for its ongoing development within a sustainable development framework of a Local Area Plan. The plan shall take account of any potential impact on local communities and shall have regard to any wider environmental issues.
