Draft Jamestown Masterplan

Dublin City Council’s (DCC) Planning and Property Development Department has prepared a draft Masterplan for the Jamestown Industrial Estate lands at Jamestown Road, St Margaret's Road / McKee Avenue, Finglas, Dublin 11, made according to Strategic Development and Regeneration Area (SDRA) 3 of the Dublin City Development Plan 2022-2028 (the Development Plan).

The draft Masterplan translates the high-level guiding principles contained within SDRA 3 of the Development Plan to ensure an integrated urban design-led solution to the re-development of the lands. The draft Masterplan is given statutory effect by SDRA 3 of the Development Plan.


The draft Masterplan is being placed on public display for 4 weeks from 27th March to 24th April 2023 (both dates inclusive) now extended to 15th May 2023. Members of the public and interested parties are invited to make comments and suggestions that will help enhance the Masterplan. A Chief Executive's Report on submissions will be prepared and given to the Elected Members of the North West Area Committee for noting. DCC will then commence the preparation of a Variation of the Development Plan to incorporate the Masterplan.

Environmental Assessment

In accordance with the SEA Directive (2002/42/EC) and the provisions of Schedule 2A of the Planning and Development (Strategic Environmental Assessment) (SEA) Regulations 2004-2011 (the SEA Regulations), SEA screening has been carried out. DCC as the competent authority has determined that the Draft Masterplan would not likely have a significant effect on the environment and that SEA is not required in respect of the Draft Masterplan.

A screening for Appropriate Assessment (AA) has been carried out having regard to Article 6(3) of the Habitats Directive. DCC as the Competent Authority has determined that the draft Masterplan, individually, and in combination with other plans and projects, does not have the potential to give rise to likely significant effects on the Special Conservation Interests / Qualifying Interests and their respective Conservation Objectives of any Natura 2000 site, and does not require an Appropriate Assessment.

The Masterplan will be used to inform and assess planning applications but does not give planning consent for specific projects, which will be subject to statutory planning consent under the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended). All projects will be subject to environmental assessment as part of the planning consent process. This includes compliance with the EU Environmental Impact Assessment, Flood Risk, and Habitats Directives.

A copy of the draft Masterplan, together with the accompanying Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and Appropriate Assessment (AA) screening reports and determinations and Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) and be viewed below.
