Land Development Agency Bill (2021): Stage 2

Updated: Mar 30


Today the Land Development Agency Bill goes through its Second Stage in the Oireachtas. This piece of legislation grants a public body the right to the compulsory purchase of land, for development and allows for the sale of public lands (including potentially parks and other assets) for development purposes. The Bill also provides for the compulsory purchase of privates land adjacent to public lands if a public authority deems it necessary to acquire these lands or properties.


Already, Dublin City Council is proposing the rezoning of sections of parks on the Northside of Dublin for housing purposes.
