PLANS for the development of 40 dwellings in Adamstown, Lucan, have been given the green light by South Dublin County Council.

Cairn Homes, one of the largest housebuilders in the country, has previously lodged plans for the development of 417 apartments at Cooldown Commons in Citywest and a new public park in Adamstown called Tobermaclugg Park.

Adamstown development granted permission


The plans for Adamstown were lodged in late May.

In the application, the developer sought permission for the development of 40 residential units across four blocks, to be located on a site  bounded by the proposed Tobermaclugg Park to the north and west and Shackleton Drive to the south.

The residential development will consist of 20 two-bed apartments and 20 three-bed duplex units to be arranged over four three-storey apartment blocks.

Permission was also secured for 51 car-parking spaces, 54 bicycle-parking spaces, bin-storage areas, associated pedestrian footpaths and cycle paths, communal and private open space, including terraces, hard and soft landscaping, boundary treatment and all associated site and development works.

The local authority recently granted permission for the development, with a number of conditions.

These conditions include the submission of a detailed phasing schedule for the lands in the developer’s ownership, in the context of the delivery of units in the overall SDZ development, and that the existing trees at the site are to be retained and protected from damage during building operations.
