Buildings at Risk

3rd February 2017

The Built Environment unit of An Taisce took time over January to review the very popular database for structures at risk, which was originally released in November 2014. In this we published some 100 buildings and structures at risk which were considered significant nationally and regionally and required intervention to prevent further deterioration.

The Built Environment unit of An Taisce took time over the summer to review the very popular database for structures at risk, which was originally released in November 2014. In this we are tracking some 120 buildings and structures at risk which were considered significant nationally and regionally and required intervention to prevent further deterioration. While there has been progress in securing certain buildings particularly in the Dublin City area, the majority of buildings recorded remain at risk and are becoming increasingly lost.

An Taisce have today written to Fingal Council to take urgent action to protect the 18th century house at Belcamp.

This morning’s major fire occurred to the important 18th century house at Belcamp. The house formed part of Belcamp College School since the late 19th century. The building has been vacant since the closure of the school and acquisition by developer Gerry Gannon a decade ago.

Principles for Sustainable Rural Settlement

An Taisce has long voiced concerns as to the ongoing suburbanisation of rural Ireland and the resulting decline of rural towns and villages. The evidence clearly shows that the highly dispersed settlement patterns that have been allowed to take hold are extremely costly and have stored up significant social, economic and environmental problems that are to the long-term detriment of rural communities and the rural economy.

Buildings at Risk - Most Significant 2014

The Buildings at Risk Register is an unfunded project by An Taisce – the National Trust for Ireland supported and maintained by its voluntary members. The Buildings at Risk Register was put in place in response to a concern at the growing number of structures that are vacant and falling into a state of disrepair. The Register provides information on structures of architectural, historical, archaeological, artistic, cultural, scientific, social or technical interest throughout the country that are considered to be at risk.

An Taisce has considered the proposed development by the ESB at Fitzwilliam Street (Reference: 3052/14) as fundamentally flawed. It is seeking a large scale commercial floorspace scheme at a time when a residential vision has been outlined for the subject area, and at a scale and density that does not preserve the character and setting of the internationally significant Georgian area of Dublin in which it is sited and that of the individual protected structures in the vicinity.
