Developer seeks go-ahead for 180 apartments plan

By Aideen O'Flaherty

DEVELOPER Randalswood Holdings Ltd has lodged two appeals with An Bord Pleanála (ABP) after their plans for the development of over 180 apartments at Dolcain House on Monastery Road in Clondalkin were refused permission by South Dublin County Council.

The plans for the former SIAC office building were lodged in three separate planning applications last October and, in total, the three applications proposed the construction of four apartment blocks, which would house 181 apartment units (135 one-bed, 40 two-bed and six three-bed).

The council refused planning permission for all three applications in early December citing a number of concerns, including their view that if the development went ahead it would contain an over-provision of one-bed units and lead to unacceptable levels of traffic congestion.

At the time of going to print, Randsalswood Holdings had lodged two planning appeals against the council’s decision to refuse permission for two of their three unsuccessful applications for planning permission.

The planning appeals gave detailed responses to each of the council’s reasons for refusing planning permission, and Randalswood made modifications to their plans.

They described the location as an “under-utilised site”, that it currently has an “untidy and dated appearance”, and that their proposed development will “further enhance and sustain the site’s future”.  

An Bord Pleanála has not yet made a decision on the appeal.
