It is proposed that a 476 sq. m single-storey modular warehouse extension, with a height of 5.2 metres, will be located to the south of the existing warehouse.

It is proposed that the warehouse extension will consist of six equally sized modular cold storage units and an associated external plant, with plans for the facility to be built in phases according to need.

Plans for the conversion of the existing temporary construction-related car park to a permanent car park for 220 car parking spaces, including lighting and ancillary works, also form part of the application.

It is proposed that a 2 metre high new screen wall constructed of metal cladding will be placed on top of an existing 2.7 metre high screen wall, around the existing waste handing yard.

This application also consists of a variation to a previously permitted development on an activity for which a licence under Part IV of the Environmental Protection Agency Act 1992 (as amended) is required, and the applicant stated in the application that full details of the proposed development and its anticipated environmental impacts will be notified to the Environmental Protection Agency.

A decision is due from South Dublin County Council by August 10.
