Brief update on DCC meeting earlier today

21 Oct 2011

We met with Dublin City Council earlier today for what we would describe as an information meeting.

We will provide a more detailed statement on this meeting tomorrow. We need to review the material presented to us in more detail. In the meantime, where we have left it is that DCC have undertaken to revert within 2-3 weeks with a revised flood defence plan.

Contrary to what has been suggested in some quarters, this DOES NOT form the basis for an agreement going forward.

Our view remains that the current plan does not in any way take into account the inherent amenity value of Clontarf promenade and ignores significant personal safety concerns put forward by residents.
