Kate O'Connell

Ceist:

1921. Deputy Kate O'Connell asked the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government the consultation which has been undertaken with the four Dublin local authorities in respect of the forthcoming work of the land development agency to build new residential communities in their administrative areas; the way in which this will be co-ordinated with the local authorities' existing local area plans; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Extensive consultation has taken place and is ongoing between the Land Development Agency (LDA) and the four Dublin local authorities. The discussions have centred around both how the LDA can assist with the formulation of plans to deliver affordable housing on local authority owned lands, and the LDA’s plans for sites in its initial portfolio that are located in the Dublin area.

Any planning applications that are made pursuant to these engagements will be consistent with the development plans, local area plans and national planning policy.
