Part 8 report attached



In accordance with Part 8, Article 81 of the Planning and Development Regulations, 2001 (as Amended), Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council proposes to construct the Bracken Link Road Scheme.

The proposed Scheme is in accordance with the County Development Plan 2016-2022 and with the Sandyford Urban Framework Plan and includes the following works:

  1. Provision of a direct road link between Bracken Road and the southbound carriageway of Drummartin Link Road. 

  2. The proposed junction of Bracken Road Extension and Drummartin Link Road will be:

    a.    Signalised;

    b.    Cater for left in / left out traffic movements; and

    c.    Have one access and two egress lanes

  3. The land take for the Bracken Road Extension will be sufficient to allow for the future provision of footpaths and a two-way cycle track. The provision of the footpaths and cycle track is contingent on similar facilities being provided on Drummartin Link Road 

Plans and particulars of the proposed development, including a Part VIII Environmental Report, are available for inspection in the "Related Documents" section below.

The Part VIII documents are also available for inspection in Council Offices from 18th July 2017 up to and including 16th August 2017 at locations and times as described in the public advertisement.

The closing date for receipt of submissions and observations is  Wednesday 30th August 2017.
