14 October 2011 – Sandyford Urban Framework Plan adopted

Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Councillors recently voted to adopt the Sandyford Urban Framework Plan. This is a five year plan to support the continuing growth and development of Sandyford Business District as the major business hub in South County Dublin in a sustainable and long term way

In addition to infrastructural and economic provisions, Area Wide Mobility Management forms a key element of the plan where the efficient movement of people to and from the entire area is a priority for everyone. This essentially means working together to plan how people should get in and out of the Sandyford Business District. It also involves people examining their regular car usage to see could they leave the car at home for some journeys every week.

The Sandyford Smarter Travel project aims to improve and promote sustainable travel options for those working in the area over time mainly through Mobility Management Planning and the upgrade of infrastructure, both key objectives in the recently adopted Sandyford Urban Framework Plan.

The vision for the Sandyford Smarter Travel project is to develop a sustainable urban community with a strong sense of identity providing better quality of life to the people who live and work and in the area, ensuring that development occurs at a pace where it is supported by sustainable transport choices.
