On Monday 1st July, the Club received the wonderful news that planning permission for its St Thomas Multisport Campus was granted. A message from Declan Ryan, Club Chairman was as follows:
Dear DSD members,
The DSD Board is delighted to inform you that the journey towards a definitive home for our Club has taken another significant step forward today with Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council (DLRCoCo) approving the Part VIII planning permission for the Multisport Campus at Saint Thomas.
This planning permission will now be used pending our success in securing funding from the Large Scale Sports Infrastructure Fund to which the Club and DLRCoCo submitted a joint application in April 2019.
The DSD Board will continue to keep members informed regarding the Club's goal of developing the Saint Thomas Campus.
Chairman of the Board
