Protest on the first day the Castlelands Masterplan opens for submissions

May 7, 2019 0

This evening a group gathered to show their opposition to the Castlelands Masterplan in Balbriggan.  The event was organised by LE candidate Martin Hughes on the first day that the submission process opened to the public. Fingal County Council’s plan for this 24.2 hectare is to build 1,000 properties along with a new school and a swimming pool on this restricted site.

The public consultation is now open –  click here

The plan aims to build 6 storey high buildings (see images below showing what some of the existing building in Balbriggan would look like if they were this high) and it increase the population of Balbriggan by a whopping 17% without an increase in vital services or infrastructure.
