Announcement from the Bullock Harbour Preservation Association: we have taken legal advice and the course of action is clear. We need to overturn the irrational decision of An Bord Pleanala to grant planning permission for the Bartra development at Bullock Harbour and our only option is to seek a judicial review in the High Court. The High Court is the only body that has the power to quash a decision by a public body such as ABP.
This is a huge undertaking but it is essential if we are to stop Bartra. We are encouraged by the massive support that you have given this campaign. And we are encouraged by other planning campaigns elsewhere that have successfully engaged in Judicial Review. We will be writing again to explain what a Judicial Review is. We note, however, that this is an expensive course of action and there is an immediate need for very substantial funds. We know that many people contributed financially to the previous stages of the campaign (for which we remain most grateful) but we now have to ask for more donations. We will be posting again very soon to explain how to give. We welcome all contributions small and large. If you are not able to give in direct cash, we will suggest how you could otherwise help.
Thank you again for your overwhelming good wishes. The Committee of Bulloch Harbour Preservation Association.
