A new housing masterplan, which could see the construction of 2,200 new homes in north Dublin, is facing opposition by local residents.

Dublin City Council will meet later to decide whether or not to rezone a large area in east Finglas from "employment and enterprise" to "mixed use".

If Dublin City Councillors pass this rezoning proposal later, this 43 hectare site of derelict land in east Finglas could be used for more housing and less business.

However the “Masterplan” proposal received over 200 submissions during its public consultation phase.

Local resident Philip Brogan says the online consultation wasn’t accessible to older people, while Fianna Fail Councillor Briege Mac Oscar says infrastructure, such as an extension of the LUAS line, should be introduced before housing on this scale is approved.

The 63 members of the council will vote later to decide on the future of the site.
