Clontarf Residents’ Association has issued a statement following An Bord Pleanála’s decision to grant planning permission for 657 apartments on the St Paul’s playing fields beside St Anne’s Park in Raheny.

It reads: “We are surprised and disappointed at the decision of An Bord Pleanala to grant permission (dated 13th February 2020) for this development. This decision goes against the recommendation of Dublin City Council and appears to be in direct conflict with the Board’s recent decision to refuse the school’s application for permission for a sports hall and all-weather pitch on the adjoining lands.

“It is difficult to understand how the Board could have reached two such differing decisions within a week of each other on what was originally the same site. We will be discussing our options with our legal team and issue another statement in due course.”
