Dublin Development Plan Submission 2021

In preparing this submission I have read closely and agree with many of the core objectives for our city set out in the pre-draft strategy. First and foremost it must be acknowledged that the impact of the Covid crisis has altered the primacy of the city centre, perhaps irrevocably, and as we look to develop a city where people want to live, work and spend their time, we must look beyond the objectives of a liveable city and consider how we ensure Dublin emerges from the pandemic as a living city – a place where people can live, a place that can be home to vibrant culture and indigenous businesses as well as large multi-nationals; a city that makes space for people, for biodiversity, and for big ideas that will shape a climate-resilient future.
