The decision comes after the Sisters of Charity successfully mounted a High Court challenge against the Z15 zoning in the city's development plan which banned private housing on institutional lands.

Labour councillor Dermot Lacey said councillors agreed to a re-defining of the Z15 zoning. The possibility of housing on such lands was now open for consideration.

But the proposal will now go out to public consultation. The final decision is not likely to be made until early next year.
