Further consideration on plans for 263 apartments

PLANS for the development of 263 apartments on a vacant site on the Greenhills Road in Tallaght “require further consideration/amendment”, according to An Bord Pleanála.

As reported in The Echo last November, Greenhills Living Limited – which was set up in March 2021 with a registered address in Drumcondra – submitted the application for a pre-planning consultation for the proposed development to ABP.

Pre-planning consultations are the first stage of the fast-track application process for Strategic Housing Developments (SHDs), and the consultations are held in advance of a formal planning application being lodged.

On January 27, the appeals board ruled that the plans required further consideration/amendment before being submitted in a formal planning application.

According to South Dublin County Council’s Tallaght Local Area Plan 2020-2026, the overall area of Broomhill and Greenhills is to be “predominantly business with more mixed-use residential” uses.

The surrounding area is the subject of numerous large-scale developments, including the site of the former Gallahers cigarette factory on the Greenhills Road, where plans for a €110m residential development consisting of 502 apartments have been approved by An Bord Pleanála.

The former Cable and Wireless site on the corner of Airton Road and Belgard Road is set to house 328 apartments, across two apartment blocks, after developer Power Scaffolding Supplies Ltd was granted planning permission last year.

The Agneli Motors site on the Greenhills Road was the subject of a pre-planning consultation for the development of 241 build-to-rent apartments, which An Bord Pleanála ruled last December “required further consideration/amendment”.

Plans for the development of 242 apartments on Broomhill Road in Tallaght will also be the subject of an upcoming pre-planning consultation.

The Tallaght District Heating Network, trading as Heatworks – Ireland’s first publicly owned, not-for-profit energy company, which will provide low carbon heat, sourced from an Amazon data centre on the Belgard Road to local community buildings, is also located nearby.
