THE PLAN FOR Clonburris, Dublin’s newest suburb, has been launched.

The Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) will be located between Lucan, Clondalkin and Liffey Valley and will see 8,437 homes built to house 21,000 people.

The lands have been designated by the government as a Major Urban Housing Development Site and will have 90 hectares of parks, 7,300 sq/m of community space and three times that in retail floorspace.

The launch of the planning scheme kicks off six weeks of public consultation, which closes on 3 November.

The scheme will include the provision of three primary and three post primary schools. Approximately 72% of housing will be located within 500 metres of schools and approximately 98% of residents will be able to access a bus stop within 400 metres or train station within 800 metres.

The lands will be serviced by two train stations at Kishoge and Clondalkin/Fonthill, approximately a 15-minute train journey from Dublin City Centre. Three regional roads, including the Outer Ring Road, connect the lands to the N4 and N7 national routes.


Speaking at the launch, Mayor of South Dublin Paul Gogarty said:

“The success of the Clonburris Strategic Development Zone depends on the active participation of communities, businesses, residents and members of the public. I encourage all interested parties and the public to engage in this public consultation process, in particular through the dedicated website, where a range of information is available and from which online submissions can be made’.

Cairn Homes, the largest landowner at the Clonburris Strategic Development Zone (SDZ), says it will be in a position to start building there next year.
