Clontarf Road Flood Defences

ROLLING UPDATES: Clontarf Road Flood Defences

Following a meeting yesterday with Dublin City Council, officials have accepted that the consultation process prior to their An Bord Pleánala application was “minimal” and “didn’t work”. They have pledged to re-engage with the OPW and An Bord Pleánala to ascertain whether significant changes can be made to the proposal. In the meantime, no contract will be signed.

This morning, myself and Cllr. Jane Horgan-Jones have submitted a document to Minister for Housing and Planning Willie Penrose outlining the deficiencies we see in the process to date. He has undertaken to examine the document carefully.

We will continue to work diligently on the issue on behalf of residents and will do our best to keep you informed every step along the way.
