The Planning Process

The Dublin Array project includes both offshore and onshore elements.

  • For the offshore works, Foreshore Lease applications have been made to the Department of Planning Housing and Local Government and it is proposed that the applications are updated in 2021.
  • For the onshore works, planning permission will be required and it is expected that the application will be made to An Bord Pleanála in 2021.
  • The Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIAR) and Natura Impact Statement (NIS) will address both the onshore and offshore elements of the project.
