Poolbeg Peninsula SDZ
Dublin Port Company welcomes creation of Poolbeg Peninsula SDZ
Dublin Port Company welcomes the creation of the Poolbeg Peninsula Strategic Development Zone announced today. In particular, the explicit inclusion of port related activities and transport infrastructure among the development uses provides the opportunity to achieve a considered balance between a wide range of activities on an important interface between the Port, the City and the Bay.
Dublin Port owns a large proportion of the SDZ lands and also large land areas on the Poolbeg Peninsula outside of the SDZ.
Dublin Port is committed to the proper planning and sustainable development of the Poolbeg Peninsula to achieve the correct balance between port and infrastructure development on the one hand and residential and commercial development on the other while also preserving and even enhancing the public realm and access through the peninsula to the River Liffey and Dublin Bay.
Dublin Port looks forward to contributing to the development of the SDZ Development Plan which will be considered by An Bord Pleanála.
