Sutton to Malahide Greenway Information Evenings

Fingal County Council is organising information evenings on the Sutton-Malahide Greenway this week.

Fingal CoCo is organising a series of information evenings this week in relation to the proposed coastal greenway from Sutton to Malahide. The information evenings will take place as follows:

  1. Tuesday 17th October | 3.30-7.30pm in Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links.
  2. Wednesday 18th October | 3.30-7.30pm in Malahide Library.
  3. Thursday 19th October | 4.15-7.30pm in Baldoyle Library.

Local Fingal Councillor David Healy writes:

“The consultants for this project have been given a brief to produce a high quality amenity greenway along the coast. A previous outline design was rejected by the National Transport Authority for not providing a sufficiently high level of service. It will be part of the Fingal Coastal Way, leading on from the Sutton to Sandycove route around Dublin Bay, and connecting to the planned route across Broadmeadow Estuary from Malahide to Donabate.”

“The Baldoyle to Portmarnock section has been taken first, separately, and is expected to go to An Bord Pleanála and formal public consultation, probably in November.”

This week’s informal consultations will look at the sections south and north of the Baldoyle-Portmarnock stretch: -from Sutton Creek and Sutton Cross to the green belt north of Baldoyle and -from the Sluice River south of Portmarnock to the railway line at Malahide Estuary.

The purpose of the information meetings is to set out the scope of the project and to start the discussion with local people and visitors on the issues, challenges and opportunities in designing the Greenway. All are welcome.

We encourage all Dublin Cycling Campaign members to be active and get involved in this consultation process if they can. If you want to get involved in this or any Campaign issues, just contact info@dublincycling.ie.

Please pass this information on to anyone else who might be interested!
