Scully’s Field & An Bord Pleanála

“The decision of An Bord Pleanala to uphold the appeal submitted by myself and others against the decision of Dublin City Council to grant planning permission for eighteen apartments at Scully’s Field Milltown is both correct and very much welcomed”, according to former Lord Mayor of Dublin, Councillor Dermot Lacey.

“Added to the previous decision by the Bord to refuse permission for 92 apartments on an adjacent site this decision has come about because of the enormous amount of hard work and commitment of local residents, the Residents Association and the Scully’s Field Action Group”.

Dermot Lacey was the ONLY elected Representative to appeal both decisions to the Board.

“Clearly there are lessons to be learned from this whole debacle by the City Council Planners and Executive who despite warnings from Councillors granted approval for both applications in the first place for development on these lands that were zoned Open Space in the City Development Plan”.

“The challenge to all of us is to now turn this victory into a real community gain for the people of Dublin. There is now a unique opportunity to develop these lands along the River Dodder into a new Public Park. Funding could and should be provided through the Dormant Accounts Fund and other Environmental sources to provide such a facility that could be enjoyed by all citizens”.
