An Bord Pleanála has approved South Dublin County Council’s plan to deliver up to 11,000 new homes at the Clonburris Strategic Development Zone (SDZ).

The 280 hectares of land located between Lucan, Clondalkin and Liffey Valley, could provide homes for a population of over 21,000.

The site has been the subject of long drawn out debates and arguments with councillors clashing over the amount of social housing, and ongoing transport and amenity issues in the area.

The approved planning scheme will include the provision of three primary and three post primary schools.

According to the plans, approximately 72 per cent of housing will be located within 500 metres of schools.

Approximately 98 per cent of residents will be able to access a bus stop within 400 metres or train station within 800 metres.

The lands will be serviced by two train stations at Kishoge and Clondalkin/Fonthill, with three regional roads, including the Outer Ring Road to connect the lands to the N4 and N7 national routes.

Daniel McLoughlin, Chief Executive of South Dublin County Council said the development represents “an opportunity for South Dublin County to directly respond to the demand for new housing in Dublin.”

“The approved planning scheme for the Strategic Development Zone will allow the construction of housing in close co-ordination with the delivery of public transport infrastructure, schools, community facilities, parks, retail and employment related development.”
