South Dublin County Council are preparing a new strategic development zone for the Clonburris lands. There has and will be extensive consultation between Cairn and SDCC before the Draft Planning Scheme is issued/complete.
The Cairn lands comprise c.178 acres (72 hectares). The lands are bounded to the south by Grand Canal, to the north by the main Dublin-Kildare railway line and to the east by Fonthill Road (R113).
The landscape assets at Clonburris, the canal, ecological habitats and historic features together form an important part of the existing image and character of the area.
