This report resents the results of significant research completed by a UCD-led research team co-ordinated by Dr. Brendan Williams. The research details new decision support tools for managing our urban environment with a particular focus on the Greater Dublin Region.

The output of this research project is immediately relevant and would be particularly useful in the review processes underway with regard to zoning of development land. During the boom development pressures and lobbying led to extensive over zoning of development lands rather than aligning such provision with strategic investment priorities and decisions.
