Fast-track notice posted for 156-unit development

By Aideen O'Flaherty

A SITE notice for planning permission for the construction of a 153-unit residential development on the Long Mile Road, on lands to the east of the Assumption National School in Walkinstown, was erected on Friday.

According to the notice, the plans will be lodged with An Bord Pleanála (ABP) through the fast-track system, where developers who are planning to construct Strategic Housing Develop-ments (SHD) can apply directly to ABP after consulting with the local authority, by developer Jackie Greene Construction Ltd.

It is proposed that the development will consist of 15 duplexes/maisonettes, seven of which are to be one-bed and eight of which are to be two-bed units, and 138 apartment units.

It is proposed that the apartment units will be comprised of one studio apartment, 54 one-bed units, 76 two-bed units and seven three-bed units, all of which are to have private balconies/terraces.

Provision for 129 car parking spaces, five motorbike parking spaces, and 198 secure bike parking spaces, the majority of which are to be located at underground level, is included in the site notice.

Last April, following a consultation with the developer about the plans, ABP deemed that there was a “reasonable basis” for the developer to lodge an application for the plans through the fast-track system.

Jackie Greene Construc-tion Limited has been the developer behind a number of housing developments, including Fortfield Square in Terenure, Wilkin’s Court in Greenhills, Brookmount in Tallaght, and the Rathfarnham Mill development.
