Inchicore Framework Plan
Client: Dublin City Council

The Inchicore Area lies no more than three miles west of the city centre, on the historic route west out of town. It has a definite identity as a village area within the city environs.

The Framework Plan, commissioned by Dublin City Council, as a follow-on to the Integrated Area Plan identified a strategy for the village, based on an enhanced urban centre, with a well connected network of public routes and spaces. The plan also focuses on the Camac Valley as a green route through the heart of the area and seeks to improve access, through a combination of actions, including the delivery of additional pedestrianised bridge crossing points and passive surveillance onto the space.

The plan also sets out development briefs and aspirations for a series of sites in either private or public ownership, in an effort to minimise the recent negative trends towards and social consequences of gated development.
