Bullock and Sandycove Harbours Draft Masterplan


Nice day for a swim! Future Analytics Consulting cares about our coastal assets and communities. We have, in partnership with Nicholas de Jong Associates, urban design and landscape architecture consultants, Altemar, marine and environmental consultants and Anello architects, prepared a Draft Masterplan for Bullock and Sandycove Harbours for Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council. The objective of the Draft Masterplan is to provide a context for any future place making and public realm enhancements of the Harbour lands within public ownership, as well as providing a wider context and guidance that could influence the future function and operation of both places.



The primary challenge is to capture all the wonderful and unique characteristics of the Harbours, define what is important (and why) and consider what role and potential these places have. The second challenge is to find a medium of communication to engage with the multiple actors so that discussion about the future can be a positive engagement, where all voices are respected.


The Draft Masterplan is intended as a non-statutory guide to the potential future use and enhancement of these Harbours, as well as providing context and guidance to influence the future function and operation of both places.
