Earthquakes in Dublin 8

Fatima regeneration going awry

The relationship between Dublin City Council, the developer and residents in the vicinity of Fatima is beginning to turn sour. Previously agreed upon elements of the regeneration project seem to be constantly being amended by the developer P. Elliott.
Ever increasing boundry
Ever increasing boundry

Some months ago my fellow residents and I were told an engineer would be calling out to take photographs of our homes so any damage due to the demolition of the Fatima blocks could be assessed.
The day demolition began on the row of blocks adjacent to my street I received a leaflet stating that as their engineer 'was denied access on a number of occasions' they were unable to asses my home for any future damage which may occur.
I contacted the site office immediately stating that I had no problem with an engineer calling out and that as I am currently working from home, I couldn't see how their engineer had been 'Denied access.' My details were taken re: a visit. Over the past few weeks both my neighbours and myself have felt our homes tremor. My P.C. monitor shudders as I work. I am still waiting on a visit from the engineer. I contacted The City Area Manager today and he said he would contact the developer on my behalf. As of yet I have heard nothing and feel with the work well under way that any picture taking would be futile at this stage.
Today the barrier fence surrounding the site has expanded for the second time. The building site is now less than ten feet from our doors. As our houses continue to rattle I dread when they begin digging the foundations for the new development.
I am curious about where all the partnership and community good will has gone?

To whom it may concern. D.C.C. are not the Mr.nice guys they tell us they are.They never were. They like things 'off the record' which allows them to do whatever they want.If you let them. Take photos as much as possible and a diary of events and conversations etc.
Put 'on the record'-by registered mail to the chief engineer ,your situation.Keep a copy of your registered receipt and of the Letter sent. Always insist on a written reply to your Letter otherwise the issue is then,'off the record'.Do this and you will get results. This holds the person responsible to act very quickly.
I will post up an Article soon about the power of a registered letter.
