Fingal County Council Asks For Public Opinion On Dublin Airport Area Plan
Fingal County Council is inviting submissions in relation to the Draft Dublin Airport Local Area Plan (LAP), which will be on public display for the next six weeks.
The decision comes as DAA, the owner of Dublin Airport, wishes to expand to cater for up to 40 million passengers.
Local Area Plan
The interim chief executive of Fingal County Council, Ann Marie Farrelly, said that it is important that citizens with views in relation to the development of Dublin Airport take the opportunity over the next six weeks to familiarise themselves with the Local Area Plan.
Farrelly stated, "Dublin Airport is a key driver for growth in Fingal. The Draft Dublin Airport Local Area Plan sets out the strategic vision and future direction for this key economic asset for a six-year period from 2020 to 2026.
"The public consultation process is an opportunity for citizens to see what is being proposed and then make submissions in which they can state if they agree or disagree with what is being planned."
The draft LAP can be viewed at County Hall, Swords, Civic Offices, Blanchardstown, Fingal branch libraries or at www.fingal.ie. Submissions can be made online.
The deadline for receipt of submissions is October 15.
The council added that it will host two information seminars for members of the public in order to set out the contents of the LAP and provide background information outlining the need for the LAP.
One will be held in County Hall, Swords, on September 18 and the other will be in the Radisson Blu Hotel at Dublin Airport on October 1.
Both information evenings will run from 4.30pm until 8 pm.
