The organisation says through revamped planning, the model would cut car use and congestion and make Dublin a more liveable city.

It says there needs to be diverse housing options and access to safe cycle route, local public transport, local health facilities, parks and shops.

The Chamber says the recent lockdown highlighted the importance of urban planning that is focused on creating liveable, walkable communities in which people can live and access most of their daily needs within a 15 minute walk or cycle.
