Interesting Legal Advice on CPO’s & Extension of time on BusConnects Blanchardstown to City Centre Submissions

The Navan Road Community Council was delighted to received the information below from a local solicitor regarding the compulsory acquisition process and submissions to An Bord Pleanála (ABP). It sets out clearly the process that ABP must follow and rights of landowners.

Due to an administrative error by the NTA they have now been forced to reopen the process of allowing residents to make a submission on the BusConnects scheme. Any resident who has not already done so should seriously consider putting in a submission on this very important strategic infrastructure scheme, especially anyone who has received a notice of compulsory purchase of their property, either temporary or permanent. Anyone who has received a CPO does not have to pay the €50 fee and should request an Oral Hearing.
