Greenmount re-zoning hits a red light

On March 10, 2020, Dublin City Councillors emphatically refused to approve the Manager’s proposal to rezone Greenmount Industrial Estate for residential development. This was the only proposal that was refused having been put to a vote. The result was 10% to rezone, 88% to refuse rezoning and 2% abstaining.

The number of residential units and associated bed spaces in Harold’s Cross has increased by over 25% since the 2016 census – many of these at the expense of small, privately owned businesses each employing between 10 & 50 people – the Classic Cinema, Thorn Lighting, Kenilworth Motors, DD O’Brien Tiles, Harold Engineering, Insignia Signs, Murphy & Gunn, Rosie O’Grady’s, MG Motors, the Lantern Inn and the Greyhound Stadium – hopefully soon to be a multi-school campus.

We look forward to working with our local Councillors, Residents Associations, the Business Association and City Council executives to develop a long-term strategy for the area.
