Residents invited to attend discussion on the green spaces in Springfield

SPRINGFIELD residents are invited to attend a gathering on the green spaces at Fernwood and Maplewood this Saturday, August 11, at 1pm, to object to plans for the development of social housing for older people on the two green spaces.

This follows on from a well-attended community meeting organised by the St Mark’s Residents’ Association last month concerning South Dublin County Council’s plans to construct 28 single-storey houses in Fernwood.

While 25 units, 15 of which are to be located in a three-storey managed building with communal facilities, have been proposed for the Maplewood site.

The plans are currently at the Part 8 public consultation stage, meaning residents can lodge submissions and observations on the plans directly to South Dublin County Council until the closing date at the end of August.

Members of St Mark’s Residents Association will be advising residents on how to lodge submissions about the proposed development on Saturday, where people will be gathering together to highlight their desire to retain the green spaces.
