In answer to a question to all of our 14  local representatives concerning the Dublin Mountain Interpretive Centre we received one written reply from Enda Fanning and a verbal reply from Francis Duffy.   Here is the written reply from Enda.   Francis confirmed what was below.

At the May Council meeting a presentation was given to Councillors on the project. In that presentation the following next steps were identified :

  • Await response to ABP correspondence.
  • Respond to Failte Ireland approval for project
  • Finalise EIA & planning documentation.
  • Prepare model & present to Members before formal planning process.
  • Lodge with Board June/July 2017.

At the June Council meeting we were informed that An Bord Pleanala had confirmed that the application should be made to them. We were also given a Powerpoint presentation by the Design Team which I have attached for your information. The required plans and documents are now being finalised for lodgement with the Board. A project model and plans were also presented at our June Council meeting and it is hoped to lodge the application to the Board in July.

The Powerpoint Presentation by the Design team can be downloaded and viewed from this link.
