Amid the hurly burly of judicial reviews, it is easy to forget about the current (July/August 2019) Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council consultation on the draft masterplan for Bullock and Sandycove Harbours. This is what the council says about the masterplan: it is “intended as a non-statutory guide to the potential future use and enhancement of these Harbours, as well as providing context and guidance to influence the future function and operation of both places”.
DE-CONFUSION ALERT!! A county council masterplan may only look at the land in public ownership (that’s the County Council and Dublin Port Company) and not at land in private ownership (i.e. the former Western Marine site and adjacent land now owned by Bartra Property Capital group) which is the subject of the contentious planning application granted permission by An Bord Pleanala, and the subject of many other articles on this site and our Donate page.
Copies of the draft masterplan are available to see in the town hall and public libraries. Details here. Consultation runs to 19 August 2019 incl. So citizens, do have a read and send in your comments.
