MASTERPLAN 2040 – REVIEWED 2018
Dublin Port Company has published the draft Dublin Port Masterplan 2040 – Reviewed 2018. The first review of the Masterplan commenced in 2017 with the purpose of ensuring that the Masterplan 2040 remains relevant and achieves its central objective of providing a clear vision for the sustainable development of Dublin Port into the future.
The context for the review has been economic resurgence with five years of consistent growth in cargo volumes (30% growth since 2012) and each of the last three years a record year, while national policy continues to evolve with the publication of Project Ireland 2040 National Planning Framework.
Development works at Dublin Port are already advanced with construction of the ABR Project well under way and capital investment of €1 billion planned over the next decade. Elsewhere, works have commenced on the development of the 44-hectare Dublin Inland Port adjacent to Dublin Airport. Between now and 2040, other major development projects are envisaged on both the north side of the Port and on the Poolbeg Peninsula to complete the development vision of Masterplan 2040.
Since Dublin Port commenced consultation on the review of the Masterplan, a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Environmental Report and Natura Impact Statement have also been undertaken and the findings incorporated into the Masterplan.
