The additional information requested relates to the Local Area Plan, which states that the lands are intended for a primary school and a secondary school.

South Dublin County Council requested details about the “rationale for the omission of a secondary school from the site”.

It also requested details on surface water attenuation, and revised details on the watermain layout for the development.

A revised Mobility Management Plan is also requested, along with a revised site layout for the safety of those using the proposed cycle facility.

The decision to ask for additional information was given on September 1.
