About the Project Launch

South Dublin County Council (SDCC) and Dublin City Council (DCC) came together and announced the development of a major joint urban regeneration effort known as the City Edge Project in September 2021.  The City Edge Project represents the most significant housing and economic opportunity ever undertaken in the Dublin Region and has the potential to be one of the largest and most transformational regeneration projects in Europe.

City Edge, was launched on Thursday the 9th of September 2021 with this website and the commencement of a non-statutory 4-week Public Consultation period. Public Consultation was announced to gain feedback on the Emerging Preferred Scenario for the City Edge Project Area.

City Edge International Conference

As part of the project launch SDCC and DCC hosted the live online City Edge International Conference which provided a unique opportunity to discuss and learn about best practice approaches to designing and delivering large scale regeneration projects.

Hosted by Shane Coleman of Newstalk, the conference took place over two mornings, on the 29th and 30th of September 2021.

A comprehensive media campaign was undertaken by the project team to promote the project and ensure public participation and engagement during these early stages.
