The Plan identifies six (6) areas for designation as Comprehensive Development Areas under the provisions of the Town and Country Planning Act, Chapter 35:01, section 5 (4). These are areas which display characteristics of decay and dereliction in the quality of the housing stock; deficiencies in the extent and efficiency of infrastructure networks and the availability of social and community facilities; poor environmental quality and social conditions and dysfunctional land uses. Within a CDA the Act empowers the implementing agency to acquire and assemble land for development and redevelopment in accordance with an agreed development planning framework.

Comprehensive Development Areas are defined in Figure 2.3. You can get more information on the CDAs by accessing the links below:
