In early January 2013 initial preparation of the Grangegorman site for construction work commenced with the pruning and felling of some trees on the campus. The GDDA confirmed to me that “the trees to be removed are only those that have been identified in the planning permission for the site infrastructure and public realm. Other trees will be cut back to varying degrees, but this is to be carried out by arbourists and is being done as essential work for the health of the trees. This work will be concentrated around the playing fields and the location of the future St. Brendan’s Way (the new main street of the development). The direct felling and maintenance work is due to last until the beginning of March and after this the debris will be removed.” The preservation of the natural habitat is key to achievement of a sustainable campus. Should you have any queries please drop me an email. Mary
