Decision due on plans for former Tandy’s Lane An Post Office site
By Laura Lyne
A DECISION on a potential housing development for the former An Post sorting office site on Tandy’s Lane in Lucan is due by September 12, after additional information was submitted on the application.
The application, which was submitted by DPB Ventures Ltd back in April, is for the demolition of the existing structures on the site and construction of five residential dwellings.
Two submissions were made on the original application, by Tandy’s Lane residents and local Fine Gael councillor William Lavelle.
In both submissions, concerns were raised about the proposed height of the development and the impact it would have on privacy and overlooking of nearby residential homes.
Concerns were also raised about parking provision in the local area, with “significant” traffic congestion already occurring on a daily basis.
Following the submissions, a request was made from South Dublin County Council for additional information.
The request asked for details on an updated design, bringing the houses down to two-storey from three and landscape, open-space and refuse storage proposals for the site.
Additional information was submitted by the applicant earlier this month, and included the reduction of height in the dwelling in line with nearby residential homes.
Details on landscaping, boundaries and refuse storage were also submitted within the additional information.
The applicant also stated that it would be willing to submit a “reasonable” financial contribution to upgrade and maintain local open space in lieu of an open space area within the development.
