The Dublin City Development Plan 2022-2028 will set out the framework and strategy to guide future development in the City and ensure that infrastructural investment is directed and prioritised in the right locations to ensure continued sustainable growth and optimal use of public transport. The focus of the Plan will be to develop a strong, dynamic and vibrant city core complemented by an integrated network of well serviced high quality neighbourhoods.

The intent is to build on the core strategy of the current Plan to create a compact, quality, green and well connected city that generates long term economic success and socially inclusive neighbourhoods and ensure that Dublin City is a place where people want to live, work and invest. The forthcoming Plan will aim to enhance the quality of life for all through the provision of high quality housing, enhanced public transport and connectivity and investment in placemaking, public realm, green infrastructure and social and community facilities. The development strategy will be underpinned by the core objectives of addressing climate change and ensuring that the natural assets of the City are protected and enhanced.
