DUBLIN DOCKLANDS DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY (DISSOLUTION) BILL 2014

22nd August, 2014

The Cabinet has approved the General Scheme of the legislation that will give legislative effect to the decision of the Government to formally wind-up the Docklands Authority. The legislation contains provision for the transfer of assets and liabilities to Dublin City Council and it also compels the City Council to establish a Consultative Forum to cover the former areas of the Docklands and not just the new SDZ area. That Forum will be constituted in a similar manner to the existing Council but will be a unit of Dublin City Council. Further information on the draft legislation is available at . It is expected that the Bill will be approved by the Oireachtas by the end of this year.
