Grangegorman SDZ Adopted

Another milestone in the development of the unified campus for the Dublin Institute of Technoloy and new HSE Mental Health and Primary Care facilities on the site of St Brendan's Hospital was achieved recently when Dublin City Council adopted the Grangegorman Stratgic Development Zone.
Residents from the Grangegorman Neighbourhood were in contact with me in relation to their concerns and the impact of the development on their homes. As a result of residents’ submissions, I proposed a number of motions to ensure that residents’ concerns would be taken into consideration.

Dublin City Council placed the revised Planning Scheme on Public Display. Members of the public had until 22 August to lodge observations on the revisions to An Bord Pleanala. An Bord Pleanala will decide shortly on whether to hold an Oral Hearing on th SDZ.
I am aware that residents have serious concerns in relation to the development and hope that these amendments will go some way towards allaying some of those concerns. Residents can be assured of my continued support and commitment to working with them to seek to minimise the impact of the development on their homes.
