Pat Kenny has advised high-profile developer Richard Barrett to meet with locals in Dalkey to decide a new plan for Bulloch Harbour.

The broadcaster was speaking as hundreds of locals celebrated their victory this weekend after challenging a decision in the courts by An Bord Pleanala, that gave the green light to a mixed-use development by Barrett's Bartra Capital Property abutting Bulloch Harbour.

In recent days, An Bord Pleanala has written to solicitors for the Bulloch Harbour Preservation Association confirming it proposes to concede their Judicial Review challenge of the plan. When ratified by the High Court, the move effectively quashes the planning permission granted by the planning board and the application could then be remitted back to the appeals board for a fresh adjudication.
