St Michael's Estate Regeneration Team need your help!

On May 19th Dublin City Council announced that the Public Private Partnership regeneration deal it had with McNamara/Castlethorn Construction to develop St Michael's Estate will not go ahead as planned. Locals are devastated and angry. Originally the government were funding the regeneration of St Michael's Estate but after the first phase of this plan was built , delivered on time and on budget the Department of the Environment rejected the master plan and recommended the estate be regenerated using Public Private Partnership. Despite the PPP process taking years and costing millions not one brick has been laid to date.

We want the want the 14 acre site at St Michael's Estate to go ahead as planned. The plan includes the physical and social regeneration of the Estate which includes 720 dwellings (165 social, 75 affordable, 480 private) with a civic centre with library, parish centre, three creches, youth centre, family resource centre, healthcare centre, two football pitches, play areas, new urban square, village green and public square. There is also an agreed figure of between 6 & 9 million for social agenda initiatives in the following areas community health & well-being, education & training, childcare, employment, cultural life (including arts and heritage), quality of life & community safety, sports and recreation.

Set up in 2001 St Michael's Estate Regeneration Team is a 'think tank' made up of residents and local community groups from St Michael's Estate and the Inchicore area. We work with and on behalf of the residents in the regeneration process.
