So the deadline for submissions to An Bord Pleanala (ABP) passed last Monday at 5.30 pm.
The options open to ABP are threefold: APPROVE planning permission, REFUSE planning permission, or Approve subject to conditions.
ABP is required to publish its DECISION by Monday July 25th, at the latest, but it may do so before that date.
Over the course of the weeks since the plans were published, Imagine Dundrum has been encouraged by the support we have received from our friends and neighbours in Dundrum and its environs. If the attendance at our public meeting and our drop-in clinics and the number of queries and supportive messages is anything to go by, ABP will have a considerable volume of quality submissions to consider before making its decision. Our own submission will be posted on our website www.imaginedundrum.ie shortly. Our core message is to recommend refusal to these plans.
We take this opportunity to thank everybody who has made a submission and all who have supported Imagine Dundrum in our efforts since 2016 to influence a positive outcome for Dundrum Village. We look forward to linking up with you again as the decision date approaches.
