In August, The Echo reported how the sudden closure of Liffey Valley Fitness Centre came as a shock to both customers and staff, who cited a lack of communication from owners regarding plans for the site.

Cavvies Ltd owners Vincent and Jackie Cosgrave, operate a number of businesses in the community, including the Sheldon Park Hotel, Clondalkin Towers Hotel and Oakfield Lodge Hotel. Liffey Valley Gym first opened in 2004.

Plans for the development include provisions for balconies/terraces, an area of landscaped communal open space at ground level, 42 surface-level car parking spaces, a bicycle store, new landscaping and boundary treatment and associated site works.

In making their decision to green-light the development, the council said permission under revised plans is for six one-bed apartments and 21 two-bed apartments.

Permission was granted on September 7.
