Dublin Airport tries again to get planning for paid drop-off and pick-up zone

Dublin Airport operator DAA is making a fresh bid to install a new paid drop-off and pick-up zone at the country’s busiest airport.

DAA has lodged revised plans with Fingal County Council for the installation of the infrastructure and changes to the internal roadwork at Dublin Airport to allow the scheme.

The airport operator’s move follows Fingal County Council refusing planning permission in February for a previous application for the paid drop-off and pick-up zone.

Instead of appealing that decision to An Bord Pleanála, DAA’s designers went back to the drawing board to produce the revised plans.

Ryanair lodged an objection to the previous plan, with its consultants, BMA Planning arguing that the proposals would have a negative impact on customer experience and levy an additional financial cost on passengers.


The operation of the paid drop-off and pick-up zone is based on Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras, with car plates read at entry and exit and the charge dictated by the time spent by the driver in the drop-off zone.

Planning consultants for DAA said the new scheme would result in more efficient egress and access arrangements at T1 and T2.

Coakley O’Neill Town Planning said the proposed development would not have an adverse on parking, bus operations, pedestrians or cyclists. The consultants’ report also said no overall significant impacts on the existing transport network are anticipated as a result of the proposed development.

In the revised scheme, DAA addressed the two reasons for refusal for the previous scheme including the associated loss of long term car-parking.

Planning documentation lodged with the new scheme states that the new scheme will result in a net increase of 39 long term car-parking spaces.

A decision is due on the application in November.
