CRUISE BERTH: SUPERSIZED CRUISE SHIPS IN HARBOUR OFF THE AGENDA FOR NOW

Following the successful judicial review taken by Save our Seafront in 2017, An Bord Pleanála re-quested that the Harbour Company provide further information in relation to the issues raised by SOS, and in particular the effects of the proposed development on the environment.

This was to be completed by July 2018. The Harbour Company requested an extension due to the complexity of the application. The date for this has now been fixed at 1 February 2019.

In the meantime, the harbour is set to be transferred into Council ownership.

Save our Seafront wrote to An Bord Pleanála pointing out that, as a result of this decision, the Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company will be wound up.

We have written to An Bord Pleanála suggesting that because of the forthcoming transfer of owner-ship to the Council this application should not go ahead. We are awaiting a reply on the matters outlined in our letter.
