Today, new plans are to be filed for a mixed development in picturesque Bulloch Harbour, Dalkey, Co. Dublin, 10 months after a similar, controversial scheme was refused permission.

#BullochPlans - Today, new plans are to be filed for a residential and commercial development in picturesque Bulloch Harbour, Dalkey, 10 months after a similar, controversial scheme was refused permission.

As The Irish Times writes, Bartra Capital Ltd, founded by developer Richard Barrett, will submit a revised vision for the small fishing harbour which includes a cafe, “marine leisure” facilities, detached houses and apartments.

The developer says it has taken seven months to consider the views of stakeholders and local residents and believes it has arrived at a “very good scheme”.

However, the Bulloch Harbour Preservation Association (BHPA), which rallied support for a campaign of opposition last January, says despite the new plans having “a nod” toward the community, further opposition is almost certain.

The previously unsuccessful bid prompted public meetings and was ultimately rejected by Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council in February.

Although planning will officially be lodged today, a site notice appeared at the harbour yesterday afternoon, outlining the plan.

It has scaled back the residential aspect from nine overall units to five, made up of three detached houses and two apartments.
