Despite 60 submissions to An Bord Pleanála asking them to insist on an Environmental Impact Assessment for this proposal, the Board turned down our appeals on the 4th April last.
A high, wide road over a floodplain; a bridge design that has already proved lethal to swans in Dublin, and which has also been judged by its own Road Safety Audit to be dangerous to pedestrians and cyclists; plus an exit onto an already dangerous junction beside a housing estate “would NOT be likely to have significant effects on the environment” – according to An Bord Pleanála.
That left us with no alternative but to take our appeal to the High Court, where we will be seeking a Judicial Review of the Inspector’s Report. We have been told we have a very good legal case, but – no matter how good – it costs a lot of money to mount a legal challenge!

You can also help by sharing our appeal with your own contacts, be they relatives, friends, work colleagues, fellow environmentalists, or simply people who love Bray, like us. You can share our appeal personally or through social media, and, if you’re not comfortable with online donations, you can donate in person in Bray at:
Cloud9 charity shop on the Quinsboro Road, Bray.
We are standing together, as one Bray community, to #SaveBray from non-community and non-environmental planning.
Will YOU stand with us?
