urgent appeal for funds

We urgently need funds so that we can seek a Judicial Review in the High Court against An Bord Pleanala’s decision to grant planning permission for the proposed Bartra development at Bullock, in the teeth of comprehensive refusals by the county council and their own inspector. Read all about the planning battle here.

About us

We are Bulloch Harbour Preservation Association.  The association is a voluntary group comprising harbour users and local people, and was established in May 2016 at a public meeting attended by about 80 people in St Patrick’s Hall, Dalkey.  Dalkey Community Council has supported the group since its inception. The objectives of the association are:

  1. To ensure that Bulloch Harbour and its environs are kept tidy, free from litter and in good condition and preserve it as a special public amenity.
  2. To ensure that any development which takes place in the harbour or its environs is in keeping with the special nature of the harbour and should respect the scale of existing architecture in the harbour and its environs.
  3. To ensure that the views and perspectives of nearby residents are taken into account when considering any development proposals.
  4. To arrange annual subscriptions in order to achieve the above objectives and to maintain a list of subscribers.

Members of the BHPA committee and planning subcommittee are local people: harbour users and boat owners, residents, community groups,  Dalkey Community Council and Tidy Towns.  They include:

  • Flor O’Mahony
  • Susan McDonnell
  • PJ Drudy (Secretary)
