Muldowney’s Pub proposal for three-storey apartment blocks
DEMOLISHING a cottage extension, rubble wall, storerooms and structures at Muldowney’s Pub to provide for three-storey apartment blocks make up plans submitted to South Dublin County Council.
Lorat Trading Ltd is seeking planning permission for the development at Muldowney’s Pub off Main Street in Rathcoole.
The first aspect of the plans is the demolition of the existing structures on site to include a portion of an existing rubble wall, the rear extension of an existing cottage, existing structures, storerooms and sheds to the west and north of the pub.
Part of the proposals is for the reconfiguration, renovation, and extension of the existing cottages on site to provide for two two-bedroom units.
Reconfiguration and renovation of Muldowney’s Pub and storage yard is also described in the documentation attached to the planning application.
Plans include the construction of 21 residential units within two three-storey blocks to the rear and side of Muldowney’s Pub.
Block A will provide six one-bedroom units overall while Block B is down to provide for a mix of three one-bedroom and 12 two-bedroom units (15 overall in Block B).
Private open space will be provided in the form of balconies with communal open space provided in the centre of the subject site.
The development will also include the provision of a pedestrian access point from Rathcoole’s Main Street.
Pedestrian and vehicular access through the existing car-park entrance to the rear of the public house is also incorporated into this aspect of the plans.
There is provision for some 32 car parking spaces and 44 bicycle spots.
All ancillary hard and soft landscaping, boundary treatment, an ESB substation, signage, bin and bike stores and all engineering and site development works necessary to facilitate the development make up the remainder of the proposed development plans.
Third party submissions in relation to this planning application close on May 9, 2022.
The local planning authority is set to make a decision on the plans by May 30.
