THE construction of a 99-unit residential development in Citywest has been given the green light by South Dublin County Council.

The location of the proposed development is bounded to the north by Citywest Avenue, to the east of a permitted residential development known as Citywest Village and existing ESB sub-station, and to the north of the Luas red line.

City West Site 09 1

The site in Citywest planned for a 99-unit residential development

Citywest Ltd lodged an application for planning permission last year for the construction of 84 two-storey houses, and 15 apartments and duplex units.

The proposed apartments and duplex units are six one-bed units, three two-bed units and six three-bed units, to be housed across two three-storey apartments blocks.

The proposed houses are nine two-bed houses, 71 three-bed houses and four four-bed houses.

Provision of car and bicycle parking, an ESB sub-station, open spaces and landscaping, bin and bicycle storage is included in the application.

Access to the proposed development is via a new vehicular entrance on the western boundary of the site, off the existing access road to the Luas park-and-ride facility, on a site area of 3.14 hectares. 

The council granted permission for the development this month, with conditions including a community floorspace agreement, and the requirement for the final allocation of car parking spaces and the design of fixtures or signage to indicate allocation of spaces shall be agreed with the council in advance of the occupation of any of the residential units.
