Dublin Docklands Development Authority Review

Client: Dublin Docklands Development Authority (DDDA)

Declan Brassil & Company Ltd was engaged by the Board of the DDDA and the Minister for the Environment Heritage and Local Government to undertake a strategic review of the DDDA's planning structure and functions, and the organisation, structures and procedures in place to facilitate the carrying out of its statutory powers, functions and duties.

The context for this review was established in significant part by the High Court Judgment by Finlay Geoghegan, J in North Wall Property Holding Company Limited v. Dublin Docklands Development Authority (2008) (I.E.H.C. 305).

The purpose of the review was to assess and evaluate the structures, procedures and functions of the Authority to:

  • Identify potential or perceived structural issues relating to the organisation and management of the planning functions of the Authority and procedures employed for the preparation of Masterplans and Planning Schemes and adjudicating on Section 25 applications; and
  • To make recommendations for consideration by the Board to address identified issues.

The Report, incorporating over 40 recommendations, was published by the DoEHLG in May 2010
