The strategic development of major landbanks across Fingal, which have the potential to deliver more than 2,000 homes over the next five to ten years, is e spearheaded by a new programme
office established by Fingal County Council called ‘Project Talamh’.
Project Talamh was formed in 2017 to co-ordinate and manage the development of these lands in recognition of the important role that publicly-owned land has to play in providing housing and quality urban neighbourhoods.
Project Talamh recognises the important role that publicly-owned land has to play in providing affordable housing and quality urban neighbourhoods. It brings together a multi-disciplinary team of housing, planning,
architecture, procurement and project management staff from within the Council.
A Programme Office has been established to lead the Council’s efforts in analysing and evaluating project proposals and selecting the best approach to development.
The Programme Office is responsible for procuring, managing and delivering residential development projects on these lands.
