Cross Party Councillors Object To Co-Living In Fumbally


A cross party objection to the proposal for a hotel and co living scheme at Fumbally Lane in Dublin 8 will be lodged today by the five councillors that represent the South West Inner City of Dublin.

Commenting, Cllr. Tina MacVeigh said: “The local community is outraged by this proposal for a number of reasons including the fact that it is more temporary profit led accommodation instead of secure and affordable homes for people at all stages of the life cycle. community and councillors have joined forces to shout loud our objection to the further destruction of our community.”

The submission jointly lodged by the South West Inner City councillors concludes:

‘We urge the city’s planners to consider our joint submission as a strong and urgent mandate from the community of Dublin’s South West Inner City to reject this type of development and to refuse this application for planning permission.

We want a city that is developed sustainably with regard to the wishes of the people who live and work here. The community has voiced its wishes through the planning process for some time now and we urge the planners to listen. This is the kernel of the democracy that is central to our planning process and this voice must be heard’.
