Save the Hellfire

We the undersigned, wish to object in the strongest possible terms to the suggested €22 million Flagship Development at the Hellfire and Massy's Wood for the following reasons.

  1. The area has a unique environmental, historic and amenity value within the Dublin region and has protection under existing Planning and National Monument Law which should not be limited or diluted in any way.
  2. There has been no real engagement with any other County Council or other relevant statutory Authority to assess the best place to provide a significant tourist development in the entire Dublin Mountains region, particularly when there are options close to Motorways and existing sewerage and other infrastructure, such as the Victory Centre, Firhouse Road, Dublin 24, the Orlagh Retreat Centre and the Total Fitness Site within a five minute drive from Three Rock in the Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Administrative Area.
  3. There has been no thought whatsoever by South Dublin County Council  in respect of the management of the proposed development and the inevitable significant increase in traffic (SDCC themselves estimate that this will increase by 300% in terms of number of people).

We further call upon SDCC to immediately engage with all local residents, habitual users, farmers and other statutory agencies such as DLRCOCO to find an appropriate place for any desired tourist attraction and agree to a binding mediation/arbitration process in respect of any proposed development.
