11 April, 2019 - by Chris Andrews


Local Sinn Féin Councillor for Ringsend Chris Andrews has welcomed planning permission for the development of t3,500 new homes on whats known as the Poolbeg Peninsula Glass Bottle Site.

Speaking today Councillor Andrews said;

“The prospect of 25% of these new homes being social and affordable homes is welcome.

“This is good news for individuals and families struggling with lack of housing in the Ringsend Community and beyond.

“While this is announcement is welcome it creates new challenges which we face as a community.

“We must ensure that the infrastructure goes in so the existing community in Ringsend is not overwhelmed with traffic or pressure on local services.

“We must also ensure that the social and affordable homes are fast tracked to ensure that the local community has the housing pressures resolved.”
