Notice from CRA - New Planning Application for St Annes/St Pauls

03 Jan 2018

Below is a note from the Clontarf Residents' Association regarding the proposed development on the St Paul’s playing fields in St Anne’s Park

On 22nd December last, Crekav lodged their latest application for a major housing development on the St. Paul’s playing fields in St Anne’s Park.

The current application is for 536 dwellings comprising of 104 houses and 432 apartments in blocks up to 8 stories high plus underground parking for 434 cars and 864 bicycles! Full details of the application are available on  

This application has been lodged with an Bord Pleanála as a Strategic Housing Development so the normal planning process through Dublin City Council will not apply. Observations on this application must be lodged with An Bord Pleanála not later than 5.30pm on 5th February and must be accompanied by a fee of 20 Euro.

The “I Love St. Anne’s” group are continuing to lead the campaign against any residential development on the St. Paul’s playing fields which they believe should be protected as an integral part of the St. Anne’s demesne. We are providing a link to their Facebook for further information.

Clontarf Residents’ Association will be lodging observations on this application in due course. We would welcome the views of residents, by email to, so that we can incorporate them into our observation.
