The County Council, in recognising the area's strategic importance, applied to the Government for Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) status and the Government designated it as an SDZ in May, 2010. Cherrywood is situated approximately 8km south of Dún Laoghaire town centre near Loughlinstown, between the N11 and the M50 approximately a kilometer north of where they fork from the M11. In the long term, the development of the area will provide an opportunity to establish a vibrant new community in a unique location.
Important Note: The Cherrrywood Planning Scheme document list below under "Main Document" should be read in conjuction with the Approved Amendments 1 - 4 document following the approval by An Bord Pleanála in June 2017. A revised Planning Scheme document incorporating these approved amendments will be available shortly.
