Save Sean Walsh Park, Tallagh

Save Sean Walsh Park, Tallagh

Please vote NO to the Part 8 proposal to build apartments within Sean Walsh Park, an Objective OS zoned area i.e.To preserve and provide for open space and recreational amenities.

Why is this important?

The top nine reasons why this is important is 1) We do not want to lose the SDCC depot as this will severely erode the ability to maintain the high standards within the park thereby threatening our Green Flag status 2) We will lose the precious and unique urban farm that delights children 3) We will lose the socially inclusive community garden 4) We will lose the St John of God garden that provides horticultural therapy for people with various disabilities 5) The highly invasive Giant Knotweed is present on the site. The proposal to move it is dangerous and reckless as Whitestown Stream runs parallel to the proposed building site 6) We will lose the last remains of a 200 year old bridge that should be a protected structure 7) Every inch of Sean Walsh Park is an Objective OS zoned area i.e.to preserve and provide for open space and recreational amenities (as set out in the SDCC Development Plan 2016-2022) 8) Putting old peoples homes beside Tallaght Stadium which hosts matches regularly and will host concerts represents extremely poor planning 9) There is at least one more appropriate site available in Tallaght for the proposed Cluid development that would not not cause any of the foregoing problems and issues. *If you wish to support our offline please email info@litter-mugs.og with your name and address* See why Sean Walsh Park should be preserved from property development: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MpP7Osf3YYo

Reasons for signing

  • The park is the great place for families, I cant imagine I would not be able to go for a walk with my kinds overthere.
  • This space is an oasis of nature that must be preserved to draw us away from the noise pollution of the motor way and capture the true reason as to why the park was designed in the first place .
  • This development will spoil the environment, there are already enough of apts in the area
