Sign our petition to Fingal County Council to save the Powerstown Allotments site
We understand that the Powerstown Allotment site and the sites on either side along the Powerstown Road could potentially be re-developed as other spaces. Our petition requests that they be designated as a PERMANENT allotment site and natural green spaces for the use of local schools, residents, churches, and allotment holders.
The three sites in question offer a very good cross section of natural habitats (woodland and wetland) and provide sanctuary for birds, insects, and mammals, including some declining and protected species. Their proximity to two primary schools, a new housing estate and a large church, makes this proposal ideal from a community perspective. The opportunity exists almost ready made to offer access to nature-based education as well as outdoor activity, with minimal infrastructural cost.
