These submissions contain extensive detailed submissions, hundreds of which came as a direct result of a call by myself through 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.

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.

Due to the high level of public engagement and pressure being applied by Balbriggan people to leverage better facilities and improvements for our town the amended plan will be presented at the next local area meeting. Following which the plan will be presented to the first full Fingal County Council meeting in October.

Do not relent Balbriggan, keep the foot on the gas.
