PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT ACT 2000 (Part XI) (As amended)

Public Consultation Procedure under Part 8 of the Local Government (Planning and Development) Regulations 2001-2013

Pursuant to the requirements of the above, notice is hereby given of the proposed provision by South Dublin County Council of a cycling and walking scheme and public realm improvement scheme from Nutgrove Avenue in the north along Grange Road to Taylors Lane in the south.

The project involves the construction and upgrading of a walking and cycle scheme and public realm improvement scheme on Grange Road, in Rathfarnham Dublin 14 & 16.  The proposed public realm improvements are adjacent to a number of Protected Structures. 

Grange Road represents an important link in the Greater Dublin Area Cycle Network Plan as it is crossed by Primary Route S05 and Secondary Route 10B runs along it.  Primary Route S05 is a proposed radial route stretching from Dun Laoghaire to the N4.  The recently constructed Grange Downs Shared Pedestrian and Cycle Facility forms part of this route linking Rathfarnham to Dundrum/Churchtown. 

A new pedestrian entrance and plaza are proposed at the corner of St Enda’s Park and junction with space with Sarah Curran Avenue. 

The development will primarily consist of off road cycle tracks, wider pedestrian routes and landscaping.

The scheme is funded by the National Transport Authority under its Sustainable Transport Grants Scheme.  The Public realm improvements will be funded by South Dublin County Council.
