ADDITIONAL information has been submitted on a planning application for the redevelopment of the former McHugh’s site in Greenhills, with a decision on the application due in the coming weeks.

The application is for the development of a mixed-use property, and includes the demolition of the Traders public house and the construction of an anchor retail unit that incorporates an off-licence and five retail units, a doctor’s surgery and 26 residential units.

Additional information was submitted to address concerns about on-site parking, an additional vehicular access point to the site and the retention of recent upgrades in the area surrounding the site.

Access and security to the medical centre and two apartments located within the complex is also addressed within the submission of additional information.

The application was met by a number of submissions by local residents who raised concerns with the potential for noise from the commercial development, the increase in traffic in the area and the introduction of on-street parking.

Additional information was submitted on May 17 by the applicant Double E Investments, with a decision from South Dublin County Council due by mid-June.
