Gilmore asked Nama to buy back plush Booterstown site - -> http://www.independent.ie/business/iris ... 04068.html

Quote:
"My constituent has queried the requirement for Nama to provide a 'social dividend', which would contribute to the social and economic development of the State . . . she is wondering whether Nama would offer to purchase the site to resell to the councils for the public and environmental good to protect it from developments that threaten protected habitats and areas," Gilmore's email reads.

"My constituent believes that the site has limited value as its potential for either commercial or indeed active recreational development is severely constrained by the existing zonings under the current Dublin City Council and Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council Development Plans and by its proximity to the Booterstown Nature Reserve.

there is more



Who would that be? -> http://www.antaisce.org/property

One strong candidate would be a person with a strong conservation record and who is acknowledged as having successfully lobbied to save at least one other cultural site locally.

Another strong candidate would be the developer who bought the property and has not been able to swap it for the better-zoned land owned by the tennis club on Green Road. So he’s now sitting on land of dubious value.

I thought it was an offence to lobby NAMA?

To be fair, if the site in question is next to the nature reserve, it's only ever one high spring tide and strong easterly away from being a wetland itself. A park/nature reserve/environmental educational site is probably all it's really fit for. The number of people along the Sandymount and Booterstown coast with flood gates and sandbags in their drives can be alarming at times.

As per Baldy "As the Deputy is aware, NAMA operates a dedicated email address, , to enable TDs and Senators to raise any matter directly with the Agency. "

For some reason KildareStreet strips the email from their copy of the transcript. The official transcript shows the email, oir@nama.ie

A viable FOI target?
