500 acres of public land near Peamount is re-zoned for industry


At a special meeting of South Dublin County Council on Monday 21st May elected members agreed to re-zone approximately 500 acres of council owned land from agricultural use to industrial use. People Before Profit-Solidarity councillors had proposed to re-zone some of the lands near Peamount Hospital for housing.

Clondalkin Cllr Madeleine Johansson commented: “It is very disappointing that the proposal by management to re-zone all the lands for industrial use was passed by a majority of councillors. There was no facility for us to put forward a counter-proposal for consideration of councillors and there was no engagement from management to discuss plans for large scale housing construction in the area.”

“The housing crisis is continuing to worsen while there is no serious plan by the Government to solve this crisis. Unfortunately, South Dublin County Council management are not prioritising the construction of social housing on a substantial scale.”
