In advance of the May 9th deadline for submissions (known as Observations) to An Bord Pleanála on the Hammerson-Allianz plans, Imagine Dundrum wrote a set of guidance notes to help individuals write their own submissions. You can read them here.
The only opportunity for groups and individuals to comment on this major Strategic Housing Development is by making a written observation (sometimes referred to as a submission or an objection) to An Board Pleanála before the deadline of 5.30 pm on Monday May 9th. All observations must be accompanied by a payment of €20*.
An observation can be a simple, short, hand-written note or a more complex detailed submission with plans, photos and reports.
All observations must contain the reference number 313220 or the development address – Old Dundrum Shopping Centre, Main Street, Dundrum – and your name and postal address.
An observation can be hand-delivered or posted to An Bord Pleanála, 64 Marlborough Street, Dublin 1, D01 V902 accompanied by a cheque, Postal Order or bank draft for €20. (Cash and card payments are accepted at the counter for hand-delivered observations).
