A survey carried out by tent makers to measure the footprint of their tents was welcomed by a number of industry groups.
It found that the footprint footprint of tent makers was around 1,000sq metres in total.
The survey was carried out for the Dublin City Council and it has resulted in a range of improvements to existing city-wide tent regulations.
There were improvements made to existing regulations to help people avoid problems when they come to the city.
In total, around 5,500sq metres were found to be under a 10sq metre footprint.
However, the city’s chief executive officer said that there were still some challenges for tent makers and the city would continue to review the regulations to ensure they were in line with the law.
Ceann Comhairle, director of policy and services for the council, said that they had been very keen to hear from the community and stakeholders about the findings.
“We want to know what people think about these regulations and how they work and we will continue to look at this and work out what needs to be done in the future,” she said.
According to a spokesman for the National Council of the Environment, which represents the city council, the survey found that a 10-year-old tent maker was found to have a footprint of around 1.7sq metres.
He is a farmer who is also working on the city to be able to offer outdoor events, but said he was not looking at changing the rules.
I don’t think we should be changing the regulations that we have already, he said.
The survey also found that there was a significant gap in the city, with more than half of all tent makers having a footprint under 10sq metres, and that many people were not using their own tent.
Mr Comhairel said that the size of the footprint in a tent could have an impact on how much people use the tent.
“We need to take into account that some people use their tent for short-term events like parties and meetings,” he said, adding that they should be able access it for longer-term uses like weddings and family reunions.
“Some people use it for family events like baptisms, and some use it in the summer for events like picnics, so the footprint should be taken into account.”
The findings come at a time when there are increasing calls for tighter regulations around the size and location of tents.
Earlier this month, the European Parliament voted to pass a law to ban tents that are less than 25 square metres.
The European Union also passed a similar law to the one in Ireland.
