Variation No. 5 of the Dublin City Development Plan 2016 - 2022: Rezoning of the former Chivers Factory Site, Coolock Drive, Dublin 17.

Closed 6 Feb 2018

Opened 9 Jan 2018


The purpose of the variation is:

The Planning Authority considers that it is appropriate to change the zoning of the subject lands from Z6 (Employment/Enterprise) to Z1 (Sustainable Residential Neighbourhoods).

The unit and associated land has been vacant for a significant period of time and it is considered that the site has limited future potential as an industrial factory type unit.  Given the location of the site, in particular adjacent to the river and conservation area, and access off a more residential street, residential redevelopment of the site would be appropriate.


Why We Are Consulting

A report from the Chief Executive on all submissions received, together with recommendations, will be presented to Elected Members for consideration and decision.  If the variation is agreed, the site in question will be considered as being rezoned.
