Following the publication of the National Planning Framework (NPF) and the making of the Regional Spatial & Economic Strategy (RSES) there is now a legal obligation on Dublin City Council to respond to the policies outlined in both documents and incorporate these in the City Development Plan. 

The purpose of this Variation is to incorporate the NPF and the RSES into the City Develoment Plan 2016-2022, in accordance with Section 11(1)(b)(iii) of the Planning and Development Act, 2000, as amended. 

This variation is proposed within the context of the commencement of the upcoming review of the City Development Plan by Q3 2020. The review of the City Development Plan will address the longer term objectives and policies of both the NPF and RSES witin a wider review process; and only those elements considered immediately necessary or legally required are proposed at this stage. 

The changes sought as part of the proposed variation can be viewed within the Variation Report. A link to the report is available below under the Related section.
