Forward Planning

How do I find my submission / response to issues in the Chief Executive’s Report?

Volume I of the Chief Executive’s report summarises the issues raised in the Draft LAP chapter sequence together with the Chief Executives response and recommendation.

 

Volume II of the Chief Executive’s report summaries every submission and lists the persons who made a submission. Each summary contains a submission number, the person / organisation name (where provided) and the chapter of the Draft LAP to which the issues raised relate.

 

The easiest way to locate your submission is to search your name / organisation in Volume II (hold ‘Ctrl’ & ‘F’ together to open the search bar in the document). Take a note of the submission number, prefixed with the letter ‘B’.

 

Open Volume I and search this document using the relevant submission number. Note, that the submission number may be listed under more than one issue – use the next/previous buttons in the search bar to navigate to other issues as required.

 

You may also view your submission in full by clicking on the submission number within the Chief Executive’s report.

What development is proposed in the Dundrum LAP?

All proposed development is subject to assessment by way of a planning application.

Will the LAP change the roads in Dundrum?
