Dublin Airport operator DAA has lodged revised plans with Fingal County Council for a paid drop-off and pick-up zone at Dublin Airport and for changes to the internal roadwork at the capital’s to allow the scheme.

As reported by The Irish Times, DAA's move follows Fingal County Council refusing planning permission in February for a previous application for the paid drop-off and pick-up zone, and instead of appealing that decision to An Bord Pleanála, DAA's designers went back to the drawing board to produce the revised plans.

Ryanair reportedly lodged an objection to the previous plan, with its consultants, BMA Planning, reportedly arguing that the proposals would have a negative impact on customer experience and levy an additional financial cost on airport users.

Operation Details

The operation of the proposed paid drop-off and pick-up zone is reportedly based on Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras, with car plates read at entry and exit and the charge reportedly dictated by the time spent by the driver in the drop-off zone.

Planning Consultants Statements

Planning consultants for DAA reportedly said the proposed scheme would result in more efficient egress and access arrangements at Dublin Airport’s terminal.

Coakley O'Neill Town Planning reportedly said that the proposed development would not have an adverse on parking, bus operations, pedestrians or cyclists, and the consultants’ report reportedly also said that no overall significant impacts on the existing transport network are anticipated as a result of the proposed development.

In the revised scheme, DAA reportedly addressed the two reasons for refusal for the previous scheme including the associated loss of long term car-parking, planning documentation lodged with the new scheme reportedly states that the new scheme will result in a net increase of 39 long term car-parking spaces.

Decision Due In November

A decision on the application is reportedly due in November.
