Abstract

The main objective of this report is to provide a comprehensive assessment of the current situation in order to assist the City Development Board in the preparation of its strategy for economic, social and cultural development over the next ten years. The city of Dublin now extends over a very extensive area, far exceeding the boundary of Dublin Corporation. It represents a complex and dynamic functional entity with roles as both the national capital and the principal international gateway for the country. Since the early 1990’s the old county Dublin has been divided into four units for purposes of public administration, within each of which a City/County Development Board was established in 1999. As each Board is required to prepare a strategy for economic, social and cultural development, the approach adopted here is to provide an analysis that takes account of the wider context while also providing detailed small area analysis for the wards/DEDs of the CDB area.
