{13.2 Alignment of Strategic Development and Regeneration Areas with the NPF and RSES

As set out in Chapter 1, the Development Plan is informed by a hierarchy of international, national and regional policies. Of particular note, is the National Planning Framework (2018) and the Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (2019-2031). Chapter 2, the Core Strategy, details how the policies and objectives of these documents will influence the future growth and development of the city. Table 2.8 in Chapter 2 –clearly shows the alignment of the SDRAs with the core strategy and sets out information regarding the area, population and yield of each area.

In terms of the NPF, the SDRA’s will play a key role in meeting the National Strategic Objectives, and particularly those of compact growth (NSO 1), sustainable mobility (NSO 4), and the transition to a low carbon and climate resilient society (NSO 8).  In accordance with National Policy Objective 3b, the SDRA’s are critical to the delivery of the core strategy and compliance with the objective that 50% of new homes are within the existing built up footprint of the city.

The designated SDRA’s align with the overarching objectives of the NPF and RSES.  They will be drivers of economic growth and investment in the city in line with NPO 5.  Their development is also important in the context of NPO 6, and the vision of the plan is that the SDRA’s will be developed over the plan period for significant residential and employment uses developed in tandem with high quality social and community infrastructure and amenities, served by excellent public transport.

More specifically the ongoing development of the National Children’s Hospital (SDRA 14) and Grangegorman campus (SDRA 8) align with NSO10. The development of Clongriffin (SDRA 1); the development of ambitious largescale regeneration areas; and facilitating the growth and expansion of Dublin Port (SDRA 6) will play a key role in supporting the strategic growth enablers for Dublin City as identified in the NPF.

In terms of the RSES, a number of Residential Strategic Development Areas (SDA’s) are identified. Many of the SDRA’s identified align with these SDA’s and will provide for high quality, higher density residential development in line with RPO 5.4. The RSES also identifies a number of Employment Strategic Development Areas which also align with the SDRA’s. The development of these areas will accord with objective RPO 5.6 of the RSES (see also section 1.9.6, Chapter 1). It is envisaged that the relevant SDRA’s will be developed for appropriate employment densities in tandem with the provision of high quality public transport corridors.}

{13.2.1 Overarching Principles and Vision

Objective SDRAO1 Overarching Principles and Vision

It is the objective of Dublin City Council:

To support the ongoing redevelopment and regeneration of the SDRA’s in accordance with the guiding principles and associated map; the qualitative and quantitative development management standards set out in Chapter 15; and in line with the following overarching principles:

Architectural Design and Urban Design: All development within the SDRAs must be of the highest architectural quality and adhere to the key architectural and urban design principles set out in Chapter 15 in order to create long term, viable and sustainable communities aligned with the principles of the 15-minute city.

Phasing: Large scale development proposals should be developed in accordance with agreed phasing plans to ensure that adequate social and physical infrastructure is delivered in tandem with development.

Access and Permeability: Development proposals should ensure adequate permeability and connectivity to surrounding neighbourhoods and public transport infrastructure through the provision of high quality, accessible public realm and high-quality walking and cycling infrastructure. Access and layout should accord with the principles of DMURS.

Height: Guiding principles regarding height are set out for each SDRA. Where development adjoins lower scaled residential communities, development must be appropriately designed so that no significant adverse impacts on the residential amenities of adjacent residential properties arises. The performance criteria set out in Appendix 3 should be adhered to for developments of significant scale and/or density.

Urban Greening and Biodiversity: Development proposals within the SDRA must ensure the integration of greening and biodiversity measures including high quality public open space as well as micro greening measures including green walls, green roofs, parklets etc. In general, unless otherwise specified under a separate LAP/SDZ Planning Scheme/other statutory plan policy/objective or site-specific guiding principle, a minimum of 10% public open space should be provided as part of all development proposals in SDRAs. A financial contribution in lieu of same will only be considered in exceptional circumstances.

Surface Water Management: All development proposals should provide for sustainable surface water management and the installation of sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) in order to reduce surface water runoff and potential flooding. This should be considered in conjunction with open space design and greening/biodiversity initiatives. See Appendix 11, 12 and 13 for further detail.

Flood Risk: All development proposals within the SDRA’s will have regard to restrictions / measures to mitigate identified flood risk outlined in Strategic Flood Risk Assessment and in particular, Appendices A and B.

River Restoration: Opportunities for enhanced river corridors are applicable to the following Strategic Development and Regeneration Areas (SDRAs) in order to harness significant opportunities for river restoration where feasible: SDRA 1 Clongriffin/Belmayne and Environs; SDRA 3 Finglas Village Environs and Jamestown Lands; SDRA 4 Park West/Cherry Orchard; SDRA 5 Naas Road; SDRA 6 Docklands; SDRA 7 Heuston and Environs; SDRA 9 Emmet Road; SDRA 10 North East Inner City and SDRA 16 Oscar Traynor Road. See Chapter 9, Policy SI12 for further detail.

Sustainable Energy: Climate Action Energy Statements for significant new residential and commercial developments, in Strategic Development and Regeneration Areas (SDRAs), will be required to investigate local heat sources and networks, and, where feasible, to demonstrate that the proposed development will be ‘District Heating Enabled’ in order to facilitate a connection to an available or developing district heating network. Further specific guidance regarding ‘District Heating Enabled’ Development is set out in Chapter 15 and should be complied with. Specific guidance is set out regarding SDRA 6 (Docklands) and SDRA 10 (NEIC) where applicants must demonstrate how a proposed development is District Heating Enabled and will connect to the ‘Docklands and Poolbeg’ DDHS catchment. Guidance is also set out regarding SDRA 7 (Heuston and Environs), SDRA 8 (Grangegorman/Broadstone), SDRA 11 (St. Teresa’s Garden and Environs), SDRA 14 (St. James Medical Campus & Environs), SDRA 15 (Liberties and Newmarket Square) where possible connections or interconnections to existing heat networks in the area, to create a district heating ‘node’ must be investigated.

Climate Change: Proposed developments within the SDRA shall be required to apply innovative approaches to energy efficiency, energy conservation and the use of renewable energy in order to contribute to achieving zero carbon developments.

Cultural Infrastructure: All new regeneration areas (SDRAs) and large-scale developments above 10,000 sq. m. in total area must provide at a minimum 5% community, arts and culture internal floorspace as part of their development. See policy CUO21, Chapter 12 for further detail.}

Chapter 13
Section: 13.7 SDRA 5 – Naas Road, Introduction
Page: 499-500

Amendment:

A Local Area Plan (LAP) for the Naas Road lands was adopted by the City Council on 14 January 2013. The plan was extended for a further 5 years in 2018 and will expire in January 2023. The plan area covers approximately 100 hectares and contains a number of major brownfield sites. It occupies a strategic location on a gateway point into the city with good public transportation links to the wider metropolitan area. {Dublin City Council together with South Dublin County Council are currently in the process of preparing “The City Edge Project” funded under the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (URDF) programme which is a new Strategic Framework Plan for the Naas Rad, Ballymount and Park West area comprising of c. 700 hectares. The vision for the area is to create a mixed use and climate resilient high density urban quarter of the city, where citizens will be able to access affordable homes, live close to where they work, in an area home to outstanding public amenities and public transport services. The City Edge project will inform a new Statutory Plan to be prepared for this area over the life of the Development Plan.

The Naas Road SDRA sets out guiding principles for lands within the current Naas Road LAP and part of the future City Edge project. The guiding principles are in place to support development in the area pending the finalisation of the City Edge Project and Statutory Plan for the area. }.

(The overall vision for this area set out in the 2013 LAP is as follows:

‘To create a great place to work and live, and create a new urban identity for the Naas Road lands area plan by regenerating existing developed lands as a sustainable mixed-use area, capitalising on the area’s locational advantages and improving the relationship of the lands to their immediate surroundings through improved linkages, green infrastructure and permeability. As part of this transformation, there will be an increase in the range of land-uses, and improvements in the visual environment, resulting in an increase in street level activity and the general revitalisation of the area.’)

The {SDRA} (plan) contains (three) {6} remaining key re-development sites, namely:

  • Royal Liver Retail Park
  • Motor Distributors Ltd site (Volkswagen factory)
  • Nissan plant site
  • {Bluebell Avenue
  • Former Irish Water and Bluebell Road Regeneration Area
  • Nass Road Industrial Estate and surrounding lands}

Linking the re-development of these sites into the wider surrounding environment, and creating sustainable successful communities is central to the successful regeneration of this SDRA.

(It should be noted that since the adoption of the LAP, there have been changes in the national planning context via the introduction of Ministerial Guidelines relating to height and apartment standards.) {Some of} the key sites identified in the area have been the subject of planning activity in recent years, with permission for c.3,000 units in the vicinity of the Naas Road/Kylemore Road junction. {The SDRA seeks to continue to support the redevelopment of the keys sites for mixed use development in the short term pending the adoption of a new LAP for the area.}

(It is also noted that the wider Naas Road lands area, incorporating parts of Park West and lands in South Dublin County Council, are the subject of a masterplanning process funded under the Urban Regeneration and Development Fund (URDF) programme. It is anticipated that this will result in a wider statutory plan coming forward that will supersede the LAP in the coming years, and may, if appropriate, inform a variation to the development plan.)

  • Require a general height of between 6 and 8 storeys fronting onto Walkinstown Avenue, Longmile Road, Robinhood Road. There is potential for one to two mid -rise buildings (up to 50m) within the site. (but any development in the immediate vicinity of the protected structure should protect the special character of the protected structure and its setting.)
  • The height of new development along Naas Road, directly adjacent to the protected structure, should protect the special character {and its setting} (of the protected structure. and should be no more than 4 storeys in height immediately proximate to the building.)
