Bremore Park project a step closer in Balbriggan

by Gazette Reporter

Fingal County Council has started the formal planning process for the proposed Bremore Regional Park Development Project in Balbriggan.

In 2019, the council undertook extensive consultation with the local community with the goal of developing an ambitious shared vision for the future of Bremore Park.

The project, led by the council’s parks and green infrastructure division, covers the key infrastructure required to upgrade Bremore to regional park status and to best serve the needs of the local community.

The focus of this planning application is on the lands within the park to the west of the rail-line as well and the section of the park to the south-east (designated as a new coastal park) encompassing a project area of over 15 hectares within the park. The park development project is organised under three distinct zones: a sports and recreational hub, a central zone of open spaces and the coastal park.

Several important heritage buildings exist within the wider boundary including the Martello Tower, Bath House, Boathouse, and Bells Cottage. It is an objective to conserve them and repurpose the castle as a major heritage and tourism asset for Balbriggan. AnnMarie Farrelly, Chief Executive of Fingal County Council, said: “This proposal is the result of extensive consultation and engagement  and is a significant milestone in delivering the longterm vision for the Park and I would encourage everyone to continue to engage with the process.”

The council actively encourages feedback and comment on the proposed Bremore Regional Park Development during the submission period to 30 April as detailed in the attached part 8 planning application available at: https://consult.fingal.ie/en/consultation/proposed-bremore-regional-park-development-project
