Fingal County Council is seeking expressions of interest from developers to build almost 1,000 houses in Ballymastone, Donabate. Donabate Portrane Community Council is calling on FCC to hold full community public consultation into the plans, as is happening in Balbriggan with a similar plan at Castlelands. FCC is not planning public consultation on the Balllymastone lands in Donabate, which is inconsistent and unfair. People on the Donabate peninsula, which is chronically short of infrastructure, deserve to be consulted on such a large house-building plan. The plan is to have 50pc of the houses for private sale in Ballymastone, 30pc social and 20pc affordable.
E&Y is handling the selection of an economic operator (developer).
