To Preserve a Visual Aspect of the Round Tower in Clondalkin

This petition had 1,263 supporters

South Dublin Council has prepared their Draft Planning Scheme for the Clonburris SDZ.

The residents of Clonburris Great Townland “Great Meadow of the Borough”  are saddened to learn that The Visual Aspect of the Round Tower of Clondalkin at the elevated site of the  11th Lock that is an important vantage point has been excluded in the draft Planning Scheme.

The 11th Lock  is a focal point of many aspects with Views &  location of high Heritage & Amenity value 

 It is the Councils plan to develop  a number of 3 to 4 storey high residential Units in block formations which will ensure that this, the only Visual Aspect of the Round Tower along the Grand Canal Way in the Townland of Clonburris Great will become a view of the past.

We are calling on South Dublin County Council , The Mayor of South County Dublin & all sitting Councillors of the County to Protect this Visual aspect.

For the benefit of our Community, Tourism & Future Generations alike.


The proposed development should harmonise with rather than block & dominate the visual character of this area.
