Redesigned flood defences for Clontarf

 

Redesigned plans for flood defences to protect Clontarf from the sea are being presented by Dublin City Council to residents in a series of briefings.

The council plans to lower the height of the planned defences from the maximum of 2.75m permitted by An Bord Pleanála to a maximum of 2.17m. Residents remain opposed to their construction on the grounds that they would ruin the local amenity and the views of Dublin Bay.

The briefings, during which residents are shown the potential effect of flooding on their properties, began last night and continue tonight 7pm-9pm, Saturday 11am-2pm and next Wednesday 7pm-9pm.
