Last chance to comment – Draft Phoenix Park Visitor Experience Strategic Review

 

This is your final chance to have a say on the above review which has been instigated by Failte Ireland, OPW and the Department of Heritage. You can access the executive summary at phoenixpark.ie/visitor-experience-strategic-review/

Navan Road Community Council are particularly worried about proposals to build a large retail outlet at the Visitor’s Centre site.  This would also mean the addition of considerably more car parking.

UPDATE ON – Draft Phoenix Park Visitor Experience Strategic Review

 

Since our original post on the 27th March, we can now confirm that following representations the Draft Review will be on display from 9.30am to 5.30pm daily until Friday 19th April, 2019 in the Visitor Centre, Ashtown Castle.  The full draft report is now available to view in the Visitor Centre as well as the Executive Summary.

The closing date for comments and submissions has been extended to Friday 26th April 2019 and can be made by post to Cathy Mahon, Office of Public Works, Heritage Services, Dublin Castle, Dublin 2, D02V240 or by email to visitorpark@opw.ie 

We feel that this is still too short a time for consultation and submission (the full draft document is 198 pages long) and we are trying to have this closing date extended further.

We are asking anyone with an interest in and love for the Phoenix Park to request a further extension of the closing date by contacting Mr. Kevin Moran TD, Minister of State with responsibility for the OPW.  You can write to the Minister at the Office of the Minister of State, OPW,  52, St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2, D02DR67. You can telephone the Minister’s Office on (01) 647 6000 or you can email him at ministersoffice@opw.ie
