One of the key challenges facing Dublin City is to provide
for a level of development that will accommodate the needs
of its future populations, as well as being conducive to the
economic growth of the city.
Experience from Europe and abroad suggests that population
density and intensification is a key element in sustaining
future growth. Dublin will need to increase population density
and development intensity if it is to succeed in this goal
of providing for the continued growth of the city region.
A second - equally challenging - goal is to ensure that this
future growth is planned so that it caters for the social
and cultural needs of our local communities.
'Maximising the City’s Potential - Creating Sustainable
Communities in Dublin' is a conference on the future development
of Dublin City and will take place in the Croke Park Conference
Centre on April 22nd 2008.
The Conference brings together a diverse range of keynote
speakers to engage in meaningful dialogue with the conference
participants on the future development of the city, through
its social, community, economic and urban design sectors.
The Conference is aimed at the city’s Residents, Communities,
Businesses and Elected Representatives. The proceedings will
inform the City Council in determining the extent and form
of any future variation to the current City Development Plan.
