This review is under a separate but concurrent process to that of the Review of the Draft Fingal Development Plan 2023–2029. During the two periods of public display for the Draft Development Plan 2023-2029 public submissions were received proposing changes to the Record of Protected Structures. These have been taken into account and were assessed as part of the current review of the Record.

Details of the proposed additions and amendments to Fingal’s Record of Protected Structures are provided in the Materials Section to the right.
