Peter McVerry Trust plan to build 10 one bedroom units

PETER McVerry Trust is seeking permission to knock down an existing house and build 10 new dwellings at sites in Kiltipper.

South Dublin County Council received the plans, which relate to the combined sites of The Priory – not to be confused with the church in Tallaght Village – and Leabeg off Kiltipper Road, on October 22.

The two sites are located next to one another.

Plans include the demolition of a single storey detached dwelling with single storey extensions to the rear and a single storey rear ancillary shed, boiler house shelter and septic tank removal at Leabeg.

The Priory building is not affected by this application.

However, the demolition of ancillary buildings at the Priory site, including the single storey detached rear building, gas boiler enclosure, boundary palisade/timber fences that connect both sites and removal of a septic tank is being pursued.

Proposals include the construction of 10 one-bedroom, single storey houses in three blocks.

Block A has a gross floor area of 204sq.m. and will consist of Units 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Block B has a gross floor area of 205sq.m and will consist of the next four units, numbered 5 through 8.

Taking in 104sq.m., Block C consists of just two units, which are numbered Units 9 and 10.

Taking down the existing boundary fence and entrance walls along Kiltipper Road to both properties are among the plans.

A new site entrance with new boundary fences, piers and automatic gates along with a new pedestrian entrance route with a proposed pathway from the entrance to the houses are to be established.

This includes the establishment of a new boundary with automatic gates to the current Leabeg site entrance.

There is provision for 10 car parking spaces, which include two disabled spaces and two electric car charging ports as well as a new connected driveway layout, and bicycle stands.

Enclosed bin storage, landscaped gardens and paving areas, covered pergola areas and ancilarry site development works are included in the remainder of the application.

The closing date for third party submissions is November 25.

South Dublin County Council are due to make a decision on this proposed development on December 16, 2021.
