Balbriggan Community Council are asking for the community to come together and support us.
Planning permission was recently granted by An Bord Pleanála, for a 95-unit, 6 storeys high ‘Build to Rent’ apartment complex, on the site of the old Tesco’s, High Street Market, and car park. Balbriggan Community Council (BCC) and local residents have expressed a significant number of concerns regarding the planning process and the planned development. BCC took the difficult decision to lodge a Judicial Review of the development. This is a landmark case for Balbriggan, being the first time that Balbriggan has fought a planning decision in the courts We are not alone in lodging Judicial Reviews of SHDs, up and down the country local residents’ associations, community councils and other voluntary organisations have lodged Judicial Reviews of SHDs in their areas. In the Dublin area alone, Ballyboden, Baldoyle, Balgriffen, and Donabate have lodged appeals in the courts. BCC would like to take the opportunity to thank the community for supporting us in taking this case on their behalf and to express its sincere gratitude for all the donations that have been given. BCC stated “we do however need more donations, the Judicial review is costly at €40,000, we’re at 30% of our target to date but the first payment of €20,000 is due and we are approximately €7,000 short. BCC is asking the community if they could assist by donating to the Judicial Review fund and if they could help spread the word about the campaign.”.
Please give what you can as this is to help your community and your families now and in the future. Balbriggan Community Council needs your help urgently ! Online donations can be made on the iDonate website,.idonate.ie/bcc or lodged into our bank account
