Over the last two weeks we have seen some more housing developments.  While we only show the ones in our area ,there are many more taking place throughout the County.   Bishop Galvin is applying for a new Vehicular entrance .  Ardstone Homes are applying for a change in the 174 house development on the Rathfarnham end of Stocking Avenue, this of course will lead to more cars accessing the M50 at the Knocklyon exit and more traffic throughout our area. BBSE withdrew their application for a mast as we have already reported , due to local objections.    There is also a very major development of the proposed Dodder Greenway from Bohernabreena to Ringsend.   Knocklyon network has already met with the Council and made an earlier submission . We will be making a further submission and anyone interested should come along to our meeting on Tuesday evening 11th of July at 7.30 PM in the Iona Centre.  We recommend people to study the proposals and make comments if necessary.   It can be a fantastic amenity for all of us, but we need it to be done right,
