Housing development set to be expanded at Landy’s Lane Industrial Estate in Knocklyon
By Laura Lyne
FURTHER housing development on a site known as Landy's Industrial Estate in Knocklyon is set to go ahead after planning permission was granted by South Dublin County Council.
As a result of the decision to grant permission, five further houses will be built on the site instead of 33 previously approved apartments located in three blocks.
Permission for the 33 apartments was granted back in 2007 as part of a planning application that also included 24 houses – construction of the 24 houses began in February 2014, with the original grant of planning permission extended until 2018.
As part of the original plans, the Knocklyon Service Station was due to be demolished and the apartments constructed on the site.
According to the new application, the long term lease on the Knocklyon Service Station was extended by the tenants, preventing the developer from demolishing the station and constructing the 33 apartments.
The five new houses will be built following the submission of additional information by the applicant Pinza Property Company Ltd and will be located behind and adjacent to the Knocklyon Service Station.
