The project brief for a Kellystown Urban Design Masterplan was set out in September 2016. Although the lands are designated as an LAP in the Draft Fingal Development Plan 2017-2023, the approach is that of an SDZ. Constraints and opportunities were identified early on in the process. The site was visited on several occasions by the team and photographs were taken. A meeting was held on site with Fingal Council in late October 2016 clarified the project brief. The importance of focusing commercial and retail activity in the existing Coolmine Industrial Estate and village was emphasised. The focus of the project therefore centred on creating vibrant and diverse residential communities, well-served by public transport with easy access to schools, shops and local amenities. The team was broken up in to smaller teams, each focused on different aspects of the plan. A weekend seminar was held on the 24th and 25th of February which finalised the layout of the different character areas. The final stage consisted of putting together and finalising the written document for submission.
