whY THIS MAtters and WHAT YOU CAN DO?
An Bord Pleanála’s granting of planning permission to high-density, high-rise, ‘Built to Rent’ apartments represents a travesty of good planning and development, and is a snub to democratic decision-making. At 50% higher than the landmark tower at Phibsborough shopping centre, the 12-storey towers adjacent to Cross Guns Bridge will dominate the local built environment.
The proposed development is poor on many levels, including being a material contravention of Dublin City’s Development Plan, with excessively high buildings and insufficient amenity space.
The decision to grant planning must be overturned.
As there is no appeals process, the granting of permission can only be overturned by a community-funded Judicial Review. We are asking you to take a stand for what’s best for your locality. We seek developments that enhance our area for the benefit of all, not destroy it for the sole enrichment of private investors. An Bord Pleanála have conceded or lost 95% of SHD Judicial Reviews taken to date. We have an excellent chance of succeeding.
SAY YES TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AND A FUTURE WITH PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES AT ITS HEART.
No to community pain for private gain!
No to non-sustainable housing!
No to a high-rent future for our children, with no option to own!
No to destruction of natural amenities and habitats of Royal Canal!
No to massive privacy & light invasion of the homes on Leinster St!
