The publication of the Public Realm Masterplan is designed to accompany and support the North Lotts and Grand Canal Dock SDZ Planning Scheme 2014 in achieving its ambition to create “a model of sustainable inner city regeneration incorporating socially inclusive urban neighbourhoods, a diverse, green innovation economy contributing to the prosperity of the locality, the city and country, all supported by exemplary social and physical infrastructure and a quality public realm integrated with the wider city.”
The Public Realm Masterplan covers a 60 hectare area within the SDZ and guides the design and layout of streets and parks, together with guidance on palettes of materials and street furniture. It includes strategies to animate the Liffey, Docks and Campshires, and encourages a wide mix of recreational activities and events to attract residents, workers and visitors to the area. It will inter alia provide guidance to design the urban environment for an exemplary world-class maritime quarter with a distinctive Dublin character.
The Masterplan is supported by a number of reference documents which may be viewed here:
