Ballsbridge Decision – Investigation to be sought at Dublin City Council Meeting (Press Release)

Statement by Councillor Dermot Lacey
Labour Party Councillor Pembroke Rathmines
1st Februrary 2008

In view of the clear rejection of the Mountbrook ( Sean Dunnes) proposal for Ballsbridge as being inconsistent with the Dublin City Development Plan it is imperative that a full investigation into the process that led to the original decision granting permission be initiated, according to the former Lord Mayor of Dublin, local Councillor, Dermot Lacey.

The original decision of the Planners in Dublin City Council to ignore and effectively defy the City Development Plan has imposed huge costs on residents and elected representatives who have sought to defend the integrity of the Development Plan as democratically decided by the elected Councillors.

It has also contributed to uncertainty amongst Developers as to what is permissable and what is not.Coming, as we are to the beginning of preparation of a new Development Plan it demands investigation as to how this was allowed to happen.

In order to achieve clarity I am tabling the following as an Emergency Motion to the meeting of Dublin City Council taking place tomorrow night Monday 2nd February. The motion is co-signed by my colleague Councillor Kevin Humphreys.

“This City Council calls for an Independent investigation into the process that led to the granting of Planning Permission for the Jury’s/Berkeley Court site in Ballsibridge given the strenuous assertion by An Bord Pleanala that it clearly contravened the City Development Plan”.
