Finally after months of campaigning for the original 343 submissions made by the people of Balbriggan to the Castlelands Master Plan have been published.
In May of this year I wrote a blog calling for the submissions to be made public from the previous Castlelands Master Plan public consultation held in September 2018
These submissions contain extensive detailed submissions, hundreds of which came as a direct result of a call by myself through Balbriggan.net and supported by North Fingal Pool Campaign. We called on the people of Balbriggan to use their voice and to call for new facilities and improvements before any new development.
Together we called on the people of Balbriggan to engage with fingal and demand improvements. 8 Bullet points we asked you to send to Fingal County Council. In a blog:
These 343 submissions should have been available to people when the second round of consultation took place in May of this year. They would have gone a long way to informing people of the views that had already been expressed.
As a direct result of this campaign Fingal County Council conceded to your demands for a swimming pool and much more. We were able to show Balbriggan people once awoken and making this demands made in a structured manner can achieve results.
