The DCC Planning Committee examine local Dalkey planning proposals to ensure developments are acceptable in terms of their visual impact and effect on the character of the neighbourhood. In particular, the height, scale, architecture and density of proposals are examined to ensure they regard the special nature of Dalkey heritage town.

There were 93 planning applications during 2017 in the Dalkey area compared to 77 applications in 2016. This was a small increase in the number of applications but planning applications are still nowhere near the numbers applied for during the “boom” years. However, the number of construction sites around Dalkey this year has increased significantly compared to last year.
