In the 1950s, camping tents were not the norm in Ireland.
As the population grew, so did the need for more shelter, and Ireland’s government started to look to the big city to meet the demand.
A number of projects started to take shape, and in 1954, the city of Dublin began constructing new and more modern shelters.
In 1956, the first new housing was built in Dublin, a 2,000-square-metre building at the top of the city’s tallest building.
The new structure was the first such building to be built on the outskirts of Dublin, and it was a massive undertaking, with around 40,000 cubic metres of space needed to accommodate the building’s 4,000 people.
Dublin also became the site of a major fire, which destroyed an area of up to 6,000 hectares.
In the years following, the new buildings were built to meet growing population demands, and the number of new shelters grew.
By 1968, Dublin had 1,400 shelters, which grew to 1,600 by 1972, and 1,500 by 1975.
At the time, this was one of the densest cities in Europe, with an average of 9,000 residents.
By the late 1980s, however, the housing crisis began to put an end to the boom in new housing.
While many of the new houses were built with the intention of accommodating growing populations, they were often too small to accommodate large-scale developments.
In 1989, the government created a housing strategy called Dublin City Plan (DCP) which aimed to improve the city and create more affordable housing.
In response, the council set up an innovative system for developing new housing to meet increasing demand.
Under the plan, there were to be between 100,000 and 150,000 new housing units within Dublin city limits.
The plan was based on the idea that in the early 20th century, Dublin’s population was more than twice the size of New York’s population, and that new housing would provide more people with affordable housing in the city.
Under the plan’s guidelines, it was also agreed that new houses would be designed to be ‘fit for purpose’, that is, they should be suitable for people who would be expected to live in them for a long time.
This meant that if the people who lived in the new homes were elderly or disabled, or otherwise unsuitable, then they could be moved elsewhere.
The council also set up guidelines for the design of housing to prevent it becoming overcrowded, to ensure it was well-maintained and well-equipped.
These guidelines were set out in the ‘DCP Plan for Housing and Neighbourhood Planning’ (DOPH) document, which was released in 1990.
The plan was set out to make Dublin more affordable, to make it a more attractive place to live, and to make the city more attractive to foreign investors, especially in the construction industry.
The guidelines set out specific guidelines for building a new house, to minimise the possibility of flooding or storm damage, and for ensuring that the building was fit for purpose.
They also laid out a number of guidelines for how the council should consider where new housing should be built.
As part of the DCP Plan, a new housing unit was to be designated as a ‘bachelor dwelling’, and it would have to be at least 60 metres (160 feet) in length, and a minimum of two bedrooms.
According to the guidelines, a house must have a minimum living space of 2,500 square metres, with at least one bedroom available for every two residents, and have a roof area of at least 3,000 square metres.
However, the guidelines also stated that it was the responsibility of the council to ensure that the new housing building did not cause damage to the surrounding environment, and should have a suitable roof.
Following the release of the guidelines in 1990, the number and density of new housing built in the Irish capital increased.
New housing began to take form in the 1970s, with a number more than doubling in the first decade.
By the early 1980s the average size of new homes in the area of Dublin City Centre was over 20,000, and by 1992, it had reached 30,000.
In 1995, there was a further doubling, to over 30,500.
Throughout this period, the density of housing increased at a rate of about 10 per cent a year, with the average of new houses in the Dublin area increasing by a further 3 per cent annually.
Between 1997 and 2002, however.
Dublin’s density of houses began to fall.
This was partly because the city was experiencing a major decline in population and the housing boom was being replaced by an economic slowdown.
Furthermore, the recession of 1998-99 and the recession that followed saw the number decline, which meant that the average number of houses in Dublin
