Greenways, Seaside amenities, Water Park, Water Sports. Even if like me you cannot make this evenings public consultation you can still have your say see below for details on how you can email your ideas. Please do take the time to make a submission.
Fifteen years ago Kathleen Hammonds letter struck a chord with Balbriggan people she talked about how other towns in the Fingal area have been developed whereas Balbriggan has seen little development other than loads of housing with no facilities. We now have a chance to have a say in how a huge part of Balbriggan will be developed for the benefit of us all.
During the summer I wrote a blog "10 Things I want to see done on Balbriggans Coastline, Beaches & Harbour area" This document will now help inform my own submission as well as some extra projects I would like to see happen at Bremore Park, like a new Scout Den for 89th Bremore Scouts
I would also like to see Bremore Castle more available for public events and used for the community for meetings etc.
I also believe that with Bremore Castle complete the area has a real opportunity to become a major tourist attraction. We could build a world class tourist attraction, with lots of public transport particularly the train Balbriggan is uniquely placed to become a family recreational tourest attraction.
A great attraction would be a themed indoor waterpark associated with some coastal amenity like the a tidal pool on the seafront.
If you think this is a good idea, or you have any of your own take a few minutes and email Fingal.DevelopmentPlan@fingal.ie using the subject: RE – Bremore Regional Park Masterplan.
Use all or any part of my own submission below, comment on facebook that you have done so to encourage others to get involved.
Fingal County Council Call for your views
Fingal County Council’s Parks and Green Infrastructure Division are developing a Masterplan to guide the future development of Bremore Regional Park and we want your views.
Located north of Balbriggan along the coast, the Park is comprised of 41 hectares. The Park includes important historic sites, (most notably Bremore Castle) and landscapes, while providing significant public amenities. A key feature of the Park masterplan will be the consideration of the Visual, Historic and Ecological attributes of the site. The Park Development Plan will include proposals formulated to achieve the best fit between the unique characteristics of the site and provision of active recreation and strong linkages to Bremore Castle and surrounding residential areas.
Speaking about the Masterplan Interim Chief Executive AnnMarie Farrelly said “Bremore Castle and Regional Park form a vital element of the Our Balbriggan Rejuvenation Plan. Fingal County Council is committed to harnessing the potential of this unique site to develop a premier regional park both as a tourist destination and a vibrant recreation area for the people of Balbriggan”.
Public engagement is key and the project team are hosting a consultation workshop so that the local community can share their ideas and views on the park design and development. The workshop is taking place in the Bracken Court Hotel on Tuesday the 30th of July from 6.30pm to 8pm and if you wish to attend, please register via email to Fingal.DevelopmentPlan@fingal.ie using the subject: RE – Bremore Regional Park Masterplan. If you are unable to attend you can share your ideas or comments with us by emailing Fingal.DevelopmentPlan@fingal.ie again using the subject: RE – Bremore Regional Park Masterplan.
