People living in the Liberties are up in arms, after discovering a site they want turned into a public park could be used for modular housing.
Residents living near the site Bridgefoot Street thought they’d won their battle for a park after councillors voted to rezone it in the new development plan. .
But that doesn’t come into force until November and now they’ve discovered that Dublin City Council want to build modular houses instead.
Reports suggest up to 100 units could be put there – meaning plans for the park and new amenities will go by the wayside.
Campaigner Zoe Obeimhen says there isn’t enough green space for all of the children to play in.
"There's over 150 children under 10 in this area and we only have play facilities for 38 children. So you're asking people in this proposed housing to move into an area with no amenities, there's an amenities crisis in this area".
Richard Taflin works on the community garden at the top of the site, he says it would be a big loss to the community.
"Since the community garden has been back up and running in the last two years, you're meeting so many new people from the area, that are living in the area that you wouldn't see normally. So, we want the park and that's our bottom line."
Campaigners say they’ll fight Dublin City Council on the proposal, which would have to get the agreement of councillors if it’s to go ahead.
