A hearing will be held in the High Court writes Dublin Gazette, on an application by local campaigners against a housing development at Bulloch Harbour, Dalkey next week.

Earlier this year, the controversial development got the green light from An Bord Pleanala for three three-storey houses, two apartments, a cafe and a number of other buildings.

There has been anger among some locals, who feel the proposals don’t fit in with the landscape of the surrounding area, and there are also concerns about the potential for flooding.

Save Bulloch Harbour is a campaign led by Bulloch Harbour Preservation Association (BHPA), made up of local boat owners, fishermen, harbour users and residents.

Next Monday, October 14, the high court will hear BHPA’s application for a judicial review of An Bord Planala’s decision to grant planning permission for the proposed development.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
