#BullochHarbour - Locals in Dalkey opposed to the building of a residential and retail development in Bulloch Harbour writes The Irish Times have been encouraged to lodge planning objections before the January 19th deadline.
More than 100 people attended a meeting in the Royal Marine Hotel in Dún Laoghaire on Saturday regarding the plans. They heard the potential grounds of appeal that campaigners hope will be successful in blocking the proposals.
The proposed development by Bartra Capital Ltd consists of seven ground-floor commercial units fronting onto the harbour itself, with six three-storey terraced dwellings and a further three houses nearby.
Locals have dubbed it a ‘Costa del Sol’ style proposal which they say would significantly impede sea views from the quay and would restrict access to rocks on the foreshore which are currently accessible to the public.
In her presentation, Susan McDonnell of the Bulloch Harbour Preservation Association raised concerns that so-called overtopping from large waves during winter storms (see Afloat coverage photo) could pose a flood risk for new properties.
If this were to happen further down the line, it could cause a risk that homeowners in the entire Bulloch Harbour area would encounter difficulty in getting insurance coverage for flooding, she said.
