An Bord Pleanála has recently destroyed Clane’s sustainable Local Area Plan by adding huge “Strategic Housing Developments” on top of the hundreds of permissions that have already been granted.
These 1200 permissions in total since 2017 will result in a 50% rise in population, 1500 additional cars on our roads, and an almost 50% rise in congestion.
This unplanned building explosion will impact everyone: school-place shortages, after-school activity waiting lists, chronic traffic congestion, pressure on all local services and local amenities.
Our legal advice is that An Bord Pleanála acted incorrectly and illegally and Clane Community Council and concerned residents have decided to organise an urgent legal challenge to save Clane from this massive over-development.
Unfortunately, this €40,000 Sustainable Clane Judicial Review is our last opportunity to protect a sustainable Clane, but we are encouraged by the fact that 85% of Judicial Reviews of Strategic Housing Developments have succeeded due to An Bord Pleanála acting outside the law.
We must act together and fast.
