School Planning Application

Dear Supporter of Rathcoole Woodlands

We are very concerned with a recent planning application, SD23A/0336, to the rear of Coolamber Drive ( There is no consideration whatsoever of the potential impacts on Rathcoole Woodlands, or other protected habitats or on the supporting hydrology. These habitats are protected under the EU Habitats Directive and the Environmental Liability Directive.

None of the reports with the planning application, assess the impacts from the development. The view is taken that the zone of influence is confined to the site boundary that is the green railings. We want to ensure both good planning and good outcomes for the environment, in particular our beloved Rathcoole Woodlands.

We are proposing to make a submission on behalf of our supporters. We are looking for your support. Please come to Rathcoole Park between 1 and 4 pm, Sunday 28th January. Add your name and address to the submission. A donation is optional. All donations will go towards funding projects for the protection of Rathcoole Woodlands.

Help Protect Rathcoole Woodlands.
