Boyle Sports given green light for the Walkinstown units

BOOKMAKERS Boyle Sports has been granted planning permission for the consolidation of two units located off the Walkinstown roundabout.

Its all systems go for Ireland’s largest independent bookmaker after their plan to merge Units 8A and 8B on Greenhills Road, Walkinstown, was granted permission by South Dublin County Council.

Boyle Sports currently occupies Unit 8B and this development will expand it into Unit 8A, where WM Trimmings is located.

The development consists of the change of use of the existing haberdashery outlet from retail use to a bookmaker’s office, and the consolidation of both units.

Alterations and extensions to the side and rear of the existing single-storey bookmaker’s office and revised signage detailing with all associated site development works make up the remainder of the plans.

The original plan was to paint the entire exterior in blue with the council stating that “the proposed front-elevation treatment is inappropriate”.

The council has requested that the original brick finish be maintained below window level and restored as such in front of Unit 8A.

In a list of conditions, the local planning authority requested that the single sign above the shop window not be “internally illuminated” in the interest of residential amenity.

The applicant is to agree with the the council Roads Department “a suitable location for a Sheffield stand or similar to facilitate parking for two bicycles”.

Permission was granted by the planning authority on August 16, 2021.

According to via the property price register, it shows that Units 8A and 8B Greenhills Road, in Walkinstown, were sold for a guide price of €40,000 on June 3, 2021.
