PROPOSAL From:

Zoning Objective Z6 – To provide for the creation and protection of enterprise and facilitate opportunities for employment creation. To: Zoning Objective Z1 – To protect, provide and improve residential amenities.

SITE LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION

These Z6 lands (2.2932) comprise the Sunshine Industrial Estate and Brickfield House in Crumlin. The lands are located in an inner suburban location and are served by Crumlin Road, a major arterial route into the City from the west and a public transport corridor (QBC and proposed Bus Connects Route). The land use is primarily warehousing, storage, commercial and light industry characterised by low scale / intensity of development.

PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED DRAFT VARIATION

The Z6 lands reviewed comprise low scale / low intensity employment uses; a significant element of the land bank is vacant. Given the inner suburban location of the lands which are serviced by a public transport corridor and in order to reflect the broadly residential character of the wider surrounding area of the area a change of use from Z6 to Z1 (residential) zoning is proposed.

Strategic Environmental Assessment

The Planning Authority has determined that the proposed Variation would not be likely to have significant effects on the environment, taking account of relevant criteria set out in Schedule 2A of the Planning and Development Regulations, 2001, as amended, and taking into account observations by the EPA dated 25th November 2019 and Inland Fisheries dated 21st November 2019;

Appropriate Assessment

An Appropriate Assessment Screening was undertaken of the proposed variation of the Dublin City Development Plan, in accordance with the requirements of Article 6(3) of the EU Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC) and EU Birds Directive (79/409/EEC). The Stage 1 Screening determines that Appropriate Assessment of the proposed Variation (the draft Land use plan) is not required as the proposal, individually or in combination with other plans or projects, is not likely to have a significant effect on a European Site. On this basis, Dublin City Council as Competent Authority (in compliance with Part XAB of the Planning and Development Act 2000, as amended), has determined that an Appropriate Assessment of the proposed Variation is not required The observation from Inland Fisheries Ireland dated 21st November 2019 was taken into account.

Rezoning of Herberton/Keeper Roads

As part of Dublin City Council’s City Development Plan 2016-2022 Herberton Road will now be rezonedE. Herberton Road / Keeper Road (Glenview Industrial Estate), Drimnagh, Dublin 12 will change from Z6 (employment) to Z1 (Residential).

PROPOSAL From:

Zoning Objective Z6 – To provide for the creation and protection of enterprise and facilitate opportunities for employment creation. To: Zoning Objective Z1 – To protect, provide and improve residential amenities.

SITE LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION

The Z6 lands (3.9187 ha) are located in the inner suburbs in Drimnagh, (just outside the Grand Canal), off Herberton Road / Keeper Road in Dublin 12. The lands are well served by public transport (Luas & Bus). The lands are generally contained behind existing houses on Dolphin Road, Mourne Road, Herberton Road and Keeper Road in Drimnagh. The land bank comprises industrial type units with some office buildings on the Herberton Road side. The surrounding streets are predominantly residential in nature, made up of two storey terraced dwellings. There is a neighbourhood centre row of commercial units on Keeper Road, to the south of the subject lands.

PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED DRAFT VARIATION

The Z6 lands reviewed comprise low scale / low intensity employment uses. Given the inner suburban location of the lands which are serviced by the Luas Red Line, it is considered that this is an inefficient use of these lands. It is considered that a change of land use zoning from Z6 (employment) to residential would be appropriate for these lands.

Strategic Environmental Assessment

The Planning Authority has determined that the proposed Variation would not be likely to have significant effects on the environment, taking account of relevant criteria set out in Schedule 2A of the Planning and Development Regulations, 2001, as amended, and taking into account observations by the EPA dated 25th November 2019 and Inland Fisheries dated 21st November 2019;

As part of this Development Plan sites along the Grand Canal have been proposed for high rise development up to and including a maximum height of nine stories. The industrial area of Davitt Road is planned for a mixture of residential and retail development. Davitt Road has been rezoned from Z6 (Employment) to a Z1 (Residential) zone.

SITE LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION

PROPOSAL From: Zoning Objective Z6 – To provide for the creation and protection of enterprise and facilitate opportunities for employment creation. To: Zoning Objective Z1 – To protect, provide and improve residential amenities.

This report relates to Z6 lands (c1.8h in area) located on Davitt Road, in the south west inner suburbs (just outside the canals) in Drimnagh. The site is served by Luas (Red Line) and bus. The lands comprise light industrial uses and commercial. The lands are bounded by Davitt Road to the north, Benbulbin Road to the west, Galtymore Road to the south and by the Good Counsel GAA club to the east.

PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED DRAFT VARIATION

The Z6 lands reviewed comprise low scale / low intensity employment uses with obvious vacancy and dereliction. Given the inner suburban location of the lands which are serviced by the Luas Red Line, it is considered that this is an inefficient use of these lands. It is considered that a change of land use zoning from Z6 (employment) to residential would be appropriate for these lands.

PROPOSAL From:

  • Zoning Objective Z6 – To provide for the creation and protection of enterprise and facilitate opportunities for employment creation.
  • To: Zoning Objective Z10 – To consolidate and facilitate the development of inner city and inner suburban sites for mixed-uses, with residential the predominant use in suburban locations, and office/retail/residential the predominant uses in inner city areas.
  • To: Zoning Objective Z9 – To preserve, provide and improve recreational amenity and open space and green networks.

SITE LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION

This Z6 land bank measures 4.2959 HA and is located in the inner suburbs within approx. 400m of the Blackhorse Luas Stop. Vehicular and pedestrian access is via Tyrconnell Road. The land bank comprises – Units within Goldenbridge Industrial Estate – 2 no. blocks on Oblete View (mixed use residential and commercial) – Kermoor House. Uses are mixed and include a house of worship, warehousing, food suppliers, training centres, light industry, garages, factory shops, recreational, childcare and commercial.

PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED DRAFT VARIATION

This is an inner suburban location in Inchicore served by Dublin Bus and in close proximity to the Blackhorse Luas stop. The lands characterised by low volume of use with a noticeable level of vacancy amongst existing units. The units in operation serve a certain level of functionality and include uses such as light industry, community, warehousing, residential and offices. Planning history demonstrates an existing pressure on these lands to shift away from historical uses towards office, retail and residential. It is considered appropriate to rezone these lands to a mixed use zoning (with residential the predominant use) to encourage better use of lands.

A strip of Z9 (Open Space) zoning is proposed through these lands where they abut the Camac River. This will ensure that the setting of the Camac is protected and to improve the quality of public open space and allow for an appropriate setback for future development, which will benefit from overlooking a green/blue corridor.

Strategic Environmental Assessment

The Planning Authority has determined that the proposed Variation would not be likely to have significant effects on the environment, taking account of relevant criteria set out in Schedule 2A of the Planning and Development Regulations, 2001, as amended, and taking into account observations by the EPA dated 25th November 2019 and Inland Fisheries dated 21st November 2019;

Rezoning of Industrial Sites Around Drimnagh

Due to the current housing crisis, Dublin City Council are reviewing all Brownfield (Industrial Sites) within Dublin City that can be redeveloped as part of the City Development Plan. Whilst this is welcomed by the Drimnagh Residents’ Community Group, we are very aware of the number of industrial sites surrounding the residential vicinity. These run from Brickfield Drive, to Herberton Road and up along both sides of the canal from Davitt Road, incorporating Goldenbridge, Bluebell and Inchicore.

As the National Paediatric Hospital site is under development and with the commencement of Davitt Lock (Old Dulux Factory), Davitt Road has indeed, experienced a dramatic increase in traffic in both directions. Reports carried out by the National Paediatric Hospital Planning Office identified between 800 – 1,000 vehicles using Davitt Road as a main thoroughfare to and from Dublin City Centre. With an increase in carbon effluents, our residents are inhaling the largest amounts of pollutants recorded by the Environmental Protection Agency.

New builds require an increase in public services, from utility services (water, waste disposal, gas/electricity and broadband). An increase in social, affordable, new buys or build to rent will require more public transport services and less traffic congestion. It is within the public’s interest to be made aware of any future developments. However, our voices will only be heard by continuing to make submissions either to An Bord Pleanála or Dublin City Council Planning Office at the planning stage of a development. Once planning has been authorised, we have little or no power to restrict certain aspects of the plans. If you are concerned about future developments within your area, we ask that you work with us to manage change in our area. For more information on this topic please check out;

Rezoning Codes you need to be aware of;

  • Z1 – Residential zones
  • Z3 – Neighbourhood
  • Z5 – City Centre
  • Z6 – Industrial or zones of Employment
  • Z9 – Open Spaces
  • Z10 – Mixed use zones

In addition, it is also proposed to vary the City Development Plan by adding the following text to section ‘Adjacent development shall be designed to complement the Z9 area and to provide passive surveillance. Any future amendment in the width of a Z9 area, which is considered to be minor in nature, will be considered in special circumstances where the proposal will benefit the character of the area and there is no net loss of Z9 land’.

– Amenity/Open Space Lands/Green Network, seeks to facilitate the improvement of the functionality and passive surveillance of Z9 lands, where appropriate.

Brickfield Park, Drimnagh.

The purpose of the proposed re-zoning Variations is to change the land use zoning of well serviced (transport / water / drainage) but underutilised employment (Z6) zoned brownfield lands in built-up areas across Dublin City to residential/ mixed use/open space (Z1, Z3, Z5, Z9 and Z10).

This is to bring them into more intensive and efficient use in accordance with National and Regional planning policy and, in order to allow for a more compatible zoning objective at the local level.
