By Brendan Grehan
A DUBLIN-based developer has applied for planning permission from South Dublin County Council to build 267 homes at Tobermaclugg in Adamstown, Lucan.
Cairn Homes’s application comprises 199 houses, consisting of 107 four-bedroom houses, 86 three-bedroom houses and six five-bedroom houses in a mix of two- and three-storey terrace, semi-detached and detached units ranging in size from 110 sq m to 165 sq m, 60 apartments consisting of 49 two-bedroom units, nine one-bedroom units and two three-bedroom units ranging in size from 47 sq m to 98 sq m in a three- to four-storey apartment block over basement car park (86 spaces) and eight duplex/ apartment units (referred to as Block B) consisting of four three-bedroom duplexes, three two-bedroom duplexes and one one-bedroom apartment ranging in size from 54 sq m to 111 sq m in a three- to four-storey residential block.
Private and semi-private open space to serve the proposed units will be provided in the form of balconies, terraces, gardens, courtyards and roof terraces.
The proposed development includes associated landscaping, 534 car-parking spaces, bin storage areas and all associated site development and infrastructural works.
Vehicular access to serve the residential development will be taken from four access points off Adamstown Drive, a proposed 6.5m wide east-west road (c.485m in total) connecting to the existing Dodsboro Road/Tandy’s Lane in the east.
As part of the development, the new road will make provision for vehicular traffic, online bus services, car parking as required, pedestrian footpaths and cycle paths.
Permission is also sought for the upgrade of around 257m of Dodsboro Road/Tandy’s Lane from the existing junction of Dodsboro Road and Dodsboro Cottages, tying back into Dodsboro Road/Tandy’s Lane, adjacent to the former Airlie Studfarm.
A new signal-controlled crossroads providing access to the proposed residential development will be provided at a point about 143m south of the existing junction of Dodsboro Road and Dodsboro Cottages.
To the east of the proposed crossroads, permission is sought for a new 6.5m wide road of around 360m in length connecting to the existing road network.
This new road will make provision for vehicular traffic, car parking as required, pedestrian footpaths and cycle paths.
A crossroads will be provided on this section of the road at a point of c.235m from the proposed crossroads on the Dodsboro Road all on lands bound generally by Dodsboro Cottages to the north, Dodsboro Road/Tandy’s Lane to the east and future development lands in Adamstown SDZ to the south and west.
