Council withdraw from Bridgefield Carpark Expansion Plan

21/05/2010

Today, Thursday May 20th, Fingal County Council have withdrawn from the Part XI process to seek permission to expand the car park at Malahide Castle, beside Malahide village.

This proposal attracted over 1,000 submissions by members of the public, the overwhelming majority were not in favour of this proposal.

I wholeheartedly support the views of the community and stand by my decision to seek the public’s opinion on this matter buy putting it out on public display in the first place.  I commend the council for withdrawing from the proposal at this time and encourage them to look at alternative parking solutions within Malahide Village and its environs.
