Rezoning of Airfield land welcomed

9 May, 2006


South Dublin Sinn Féin Candidate for the General election Shaun Tracey has welcomed the decision of Dún Laoghaire -- Rathdown County Council to rezone five acres at Airfield Estate in Dundrum from residential to amenity. Mr. Tracey said the decision "reflects the wishes of the overwhelming majority of the people of Dundrum and of the late Overend sisters who left the estate in trust for the benefit of the people of the area."

He said, "I welcome the decision of Dún Laoghaire -- Rathdown County Council to rezone the five acres at Airfield Estate back to amenity. Sinn Féin has consistently called on the council to rezone this land so it would be free from the threat of development and can be enjoyed by the people of Dundrum as the late Overend sisters had wanted.

"The decision is a sensible one and one that reflects the wishes of the overwhelming majority of the people of Dundrum and of the late Overend sisters who left the estate in trust for the benefit of the people of the area." ENDS
