#BullochHarbour - Permission is being sought to develop a mixed housing and commercial scheme at the former premises of Western Marine at Dalkey’s Bulloch Harbour.

The planning application by Bartra Property Ltd calls for the demolition of the existing warehouses on the waterfront site before the construction of three detached houses and six terraced homes over “marine-based activity units” and a quayside café.

Western Marine bade farewell to Bulloch Harbour after 48 years this past April ahead of a relocation to new chandlery premises which has yet to be announced.

Meanwhile, the new development is being closely watched by the newly formed Bulloch Harbour Preservation Group, comprising local residents, boat users and Dalkey Community Council.

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.
