Greater Dublin Drainage – Public Consultation Process

Fingal County Council has published a report (PDF) identifying nine possible land parcels for investigation as possible locations for a new regional wastewater treatment works, marine outfall locations and routes for the drainage system.

The marine area identified for the outfall in the northern part of the county stretches roughly from south of the Rugby Club in Skerries to Portrane. In the southern part of the county, the outfall is around the Velvet Strand at Portmarnock.

The proposed land parcels are located at:

  • Tyrrelstown Little
  • Rathartan
  • Newtowncorduff
  • Annsbrook
  • Baldurgan
  • Cookstown
  • Saucerstown
  • Cloghran
  • Clonshaugh.

The proposed routes for the drainage system run through the areas named above.

The report and accompanying maps is available at

This major development has the potential to have a significant impact on the affected areas and I’d suggest that, if you live in an area potentially impacted by the proposal, you check out the website, attend the open days and let the council know your views.

The Council is currently undertaking a public consultation process, which started on 10 October 2011 and will continue until 18 November 2011. Two open days will also be held at the council offices at Main Street Swords on 3 November 2011 from 2pm to 8 pm and on 5 November 2011 from 11 am to 4 pm.

Written submissions on the potential land parcels may be sent, before 18 November 2011, to Greater Dublin Drainage Project Manager, C/O RPS Group, West Pier, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin.
