Clontarf flood plans rejected
Dublin city councillors have voted unanimously to reject plans for the construction of a controversial flood defence barrier along the promenade in Clontarf.
Redesigned plans were submitted for consideration following objections from residents and business owners over the height and scale of the project.
Over 3,000 people attended a demonstration in October, prompting the council to redesign their preferred proposal.
Council officials later admitted that the public consultation process was “minimal” and “didn’t work”.
