Consultation today | New Runway | 24 October

The DAA is currently progressing the North Runway at Dublin Airport. DAA has also commenced a parallel process to change two planning conditions attached to the delivery of the North Runway. As part of that process, they held a series of public consultation events in June and July to help inform a scoping process for an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The EIS will assess the impacts of the proposed changes on the environment.

Further information and consultation events are now being planned to provide an update on the EIS and to assist in selecting between emerging options for future flight paths.

Details of the public events to share information on these issues are as follows:

 The Grand Hotel, Malahide  –  3pm – 8pm Monday 24th October 2016

St Margaret’s GAA Club, Kilreesk,St Margaret’s  – 3pm – 8pmTuesday 25th October 2016

River Valley Community Centre, Swords  –  3pm – 8pm Wednesday 26th October 2016

Further details about the project are available on

You can also view the presentation shared yesterday, in order to have the facts and figures in relation to the runway to hand.
