Fingal County Council intends to prepare a Local Area Plan for Kellystown, Dublin 15.
A Local Area Plan (LAP) is a statutory document prepared by the Planning Authority in accordance with the requirements of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended), including Sections 18, 19 and 20. A Local Area Plan consists of a written statement and plans which must be
consistent with the objectives of the County Development Plan, its core strategy and any Regional Planning Guidelines or Regional Spatial Economic Strategy (RSES) that applies to the area of the Plan.
The Local Area Plan will consist of a written statement and maps setting out a land use strategy for the proper planning and sustainable development of the area and guidance as to how development can be achieved, what new infrastructure is needed and where public and private resource inputs are required for development proposed in the LAP area.
This pre-draft consultation offers the opportunity for stakeholders, organisations and the public to express their views and help shape a new LAP for Kellystown. This Strategic Issues Paper has been published to help inform discussion. The preparation of the Kellystown LAP will involve two phases. Firstly, a nonstatutory Pre-Draft phase and secondly, a statutory Draft phase.
Fingal County Council is now beginning the Pre-Draft phase and has prepared this Strategic Issues Paper to inform the public and encourage discussion and debate. The Pre-Draft phase will be followed by the preparation and publication of the Draft LAP. During both phases, the Council will undertake public consultation and invite your comments.
Why get involved?
Local input is considered vital to the LAP process and we value what you have to say. We hope that this Strategic Issues Paper will stimulate interest and initiate debate resulting in constructive, positive and helpful feedback.
