More information requested for revamp of Cuckoo’s Nest
ADDITIONAL information has been requested by the South Dublin County Council (SDCC) in relation to plans for the extension and renovation of the landmark Cuckoo’s Nest pub, and the construction of 11 apartments.
The plans for the landmark pub, lodged by Brain Mulvaney last June, include retaining the original front part of the pub, and re-establishing a public house/gastro pub at ground and first-floor level.
The proposed development also consists of the construction of a three- and four-storey building to the side and rear of the existing pub building.
The new building will accommodate public house use at ground floor, retail/shop use, also at ground floor, with 11 apartments overhead.
The proposed residential accommodation consists of five one-bed apartments and six two-bed apartments.
The proposed development is a modification to a previously permitted development and includes access to the development via an existing/permitted vehicular entrance off the Greenhills Road.
Last month, SDCC decided that it required further information from Mr Mulvaney about a number of aspects of the development.
The requested information includes details on how the development can support bicycle infrastructure on the Old Greenhills Road, and also how the development plans to establish the space as a pedestrian priority space.
Information about the relationship between the apartment aspect of the proposed development and the existing Temple Court apartments, is also requested “to establish that the occupants of the new development will not suffer a lack of privacy given the location of kitchen”, stated the council.
The council requested the additional information on August 18. The developer has six months from that date to supply the additional information to the council.
The Cuckoo’s Nest pub ceased trading in 2015, after being run by the Lynch family for more than 50 years.
