  5. 5. 1.0 Introduction 1.1 The Brief DMD were commissioned by Dublin City Council to prepare a Schematic Framework Plan and Site Brief for the lands previously used as the Port Tunnel Depot at the junction of Swords Road and Collins Avenue, together with the adjacent development site, all zoned Z12 in the Dublin City Development Plan 2005-2011 (DCDP). The main objective is to provide a schematic development framework for the site outlined in red on the attached plan, based on supporting studies as itemised below and as required by the brief. The plan is based on an analysis of the wider study area, particularly in respect of move- ment and access to the surrounding facilities and includes an audit of open spaces within a wider study area, identified in green on the extract of the DCDP on p15 below. From this, a structuring concept / framework plan was prepared, together with a public domain strat- egy and hierarchy and supported by built form, land use, and movement strategies. 214 | Whitehall Framework Plan | November 2008 5
  6. 6. 1.0 1.2 The Site The site is located to the south east of the The area enjoys a large public open space junction of the Swords Road and Collins amenity, at Ellenfield park, immediately north Avenue, Dublin 9. of the church and a mere 270m from Collins Ave. This park is intensively used for sports In total it measures 6.28 Hectares and is predominantly by the two clubs in the area, divided into two ownerships. The northern St. Kevins Football Club and Whitehall portion in Dublin City Council ownership Colmcilles, for soccer and gaelic football measures 3.7 hectares while the site to the respectively. south in private ownership measures 3.1 hectares. Hampstead Park lies to the west just outside the study area, supplementing the active play facilities available nearby. 1.3 Site Context The site is strategically located at the junction of two major roads, one, the historic radial running from the north into the city centre, and the other, Collins Avenue, providing an inner orbital connection from Killester to Finglas, approximately half way from the M50 and the city centre. A short distance to the north of this junction, the M1 runs into the port tunnel and the car- riageway reduces to the four lane Swords Road as it passes the site. The area is predominantly residential in char- acter, with a significant number of large insti- tutions, including DCU and Highfield Hospital lands on both sides of the Swords Road, together with a total of eight schools, four infant or primary and the remainder post pri- mary. 6 214 | Whitehall Framework Plan | November 2008

The modern day suburb of Whitehall owes much of its character to the activities of the Shops were provided at the entrance to the Dublin Corporation, both as a builder and as Gaeltacht Park scheme in the 1930’s, as a land developer. In the case of Ellenfield, were additional shops on Collins Avenue with and Larkhill, north of the newly extended cinema in 1938. Collins Avenue, on either side of the Swords Road, the corporation took on the responsi- bility of constructing large housing schemes, completed in 1939, and including 370 hous- es. A different approach was taken in the case of the scheme at Gaeltacht Park, completed in 1934. Originally earmarked for Irish speakers by Nua Gaeltacht, several different public util- ity associations were eventually responsible for the completion of the scheme, under the close eye of the corporation. 214 | Whitehall Framework Plan | November 2008 7
