Re: Illegal right turning at Semple Woods

I actually agree with your point that the entrance/approach is really poor. It's the overall passive aggressive, ranty describing everyone as idiots that I think is unnecessary. The biggest issue I can see there is the fact that there is no traffic calming on approach to the entrance. And with the e...

Yeah if you are going to point out that all involved are idiots a man as smart as yourself should have a few solutions.

Re: Illegal right turning at Semple Woods

Have you any suggestions for how the residents should enter the estate legally given you know more than all the idiots?

Hi all

What are the waste company options in Donabate?
Is it only Panda?
How much are you paying with them on average?

Re: Cycleway to Malahide Progress

Have to agree with the above. To go straight to the village via a widening of the train route would make much more sense. And then cut into Newbridge via the village. Having said that there may be a structural reason why this isn't possible.

Re: New Houses at Beresford

Hi all

Did you get a structural review/engineers report done prior to moving in? Not talking about snagging.
If so could you pm me details on who carried it out for you?

Thanks

Re: This place is getting worse

I agree with Roger. Serious amount of whinging on this forum. Seems to be the place to come to give out. I only joined here a few months ago to get a feel for what the area is like as I'm planning to buy. I just hope the constant moaners represent a small minority. I do understand that recent change...

Re: Semple Woods new development

I heard the 10% social housing in that development is not going to be allocated at all because Glenveagh have amended their application claiming they will be able to sell all the properties. I heard this a few months back so obviously it was in the pipeline a long time ago to sell to iRes. I'm sure...

I don't know where you are getting your figures from. The estate agents marketing the estate have the number of houses at 134 (https://dmpc.ie/new-homes/semple-woods/) and the map on the official website for the development shows the same amount (https://glenveagh.ie/development/glenveagh-semple-wo...

Re: Semple Woods new development

Social housing ghetto is a bit extreme. There are 258 properties being built there so taking 40 that have gone to the private landlord and let's assume another 26 for social housing that's still 192 for private purchase. I'd predict they won't have any trouble selling these as conversely if these cu...

Re: Semple Woods new development

The developers are currently building a footpath into Donabate from Semple Woods on the hearse road. They were required to do it. Once the development is completed there will also be another walkway to the village through the estate without the need to go to the main road. I'd say that's years away ...
