Save St Ann’s

Save St Ann’s

Please reject the planning application by Crevak Developers who are seeking to use the fast track planning route to circumvent proper processes and develop on St Anne’s Park in Dublin.

Why is this important?

St Anne’s Park is a valuable public space given in trust to Dublin City Council by the Guinness family, for citizens of all ages, abilities and social groups. It is also part of the environmental buffer zone for Bull Island, a UNESCO protected environment.

Right now Crevak Developers are trying to by-pass proper planning procedures and steal a public space for private gain. An application for this development was previously turned down and people are already objecting for any reason [1] The more of us that raise our voices in objection, the better our chances will be to save St Anne’s!

Reasons for signing

  • Perry Square in Limerick was a "people's park" - donated to the people by the Earl of Limerick in the 1870s - however, Limerick Corporation sold off a section of it to a private developer who built apartments on it! The people of Limerick weren't asked or consulted about this and have now lost this valuable public space forever!
  • St. Anne’s Park is an invaluable public amenity for all citizens. It is also part of the environmental buffer zone for Bull Island, a UNESCO protected environment. This proposed development is an encroachment by a private developer into a public amenity.
