PERMISSION has been granted for a new equestrian centre in Rathcreedan in Rathcoole.

The application, which was submitted by Lucy McCarthy last December, outlines plans for a 50 stable equestrian centre.

It is proposed that the 1.45 hectare site, called The Pond Field, will contain an equestrian facility for the purpose of breeding, breaking and producing horses for own use and sale.

The facility will consist of 50 stables in two adjacent blocks, an indoor exercise area, a machinery park, a shelter building, and a staff welfare building to include associated canteen, wash area and tack room.

Plans also contain proposals for an outdoor sand arena of 1,800 sq.m, and an ancillary yard of approximately 3320sq. m for vehicle parking, marshalling, loading and unloading.

An access road from Tay Lane is sought, along with a landscaping, fencing, dungstead, water main connection, and a foul sewer connection to the existing sewer network on Tay Lane.

South Dublin County Council granted planning permission for the development this month, with a number of conditions.

These conditions include the prohibition of eventing or riding school activities without prior planning permission and the sale of horses on site through auction.

It has also been stipulated that all roofs shall be finished in non-reflective material in the interest of visual amenity.
