A landbank in north Dublin, that's been the subject of multiple contentious housing applications, has been rezoned.

The move by city councillors blocks the site beside St Anne's Park in Raheny from being developed.

The 16.5-acre plot was rezoned as Z9 open space during a vote by public reps last night as part of the city's new development plan.

Several planning applications for housing on the privately owned landbank beside St Anne's Park have been lodged in recent years, that have been challenged in the courts by locals.

The most recent proposal for 580 apartments and a nursing home on the former playing pitches was refused permission by the city council last week over concerns about the impact on Brent geese.

The rezoning will come into force in the middle of December.
