#dublinport- Lands in Dublin Port must not be “reallocated” by Dublin City Council for uses not associated with strategic port activities, business representative group Ibec has said.

Ibec was responding to a decision by the council this week writes The Irish Times, to enable the use of port lands for “film, TV and digital content production studios”in the new Poolbeg Strategic Development Zone (SDZ).

A 15-hectare combined site in the new zone – the former Glass Bottle Company and Fabrizia lands, not owned by Dublin Port Company, has been designated for the construction of 3,500 apartments.

The council voted to zone part of the port company’s lands as “mixed use” to allow “commercial, creative and industrial” uses. The port company has said it intends to keep the lands for port activities only.
