Plans lodged for 19 residential units at Tallaght Cross West
By Aideen O’Flaherty
PLANS for 19 residential units within the existing Tallaght Cross West development, located in Belgard Square West, have been lodged with South Dublin County Council.
Applicant Irish Residential Properties Reit plc has requested permission for the change of use of a number of units within the development, in order to house the residential units.
It is proposed that a permitted crèche at first-floor level will be changed to accommodate nine residential units, a permitted retail management suite and plant room at mezzanine floor level will be changed to provide three residential units, while a permitted gymnasium, also at mezzanine level, will be changed to house seven residential units.
The submission includes plans for these residential units to consist of four one-bedroom units, 14 two-bedroom units and one three-bedroom unit, with associated balconies/winter gardens.
The applicant is also seeking permission for the change of use of permitted retail and food court uses at ground, mezzanine and first-floor levels, to instead be used for third-level education purposes, and there are also plans for a permitted retail space of 2,885 sq m on the ground floor to be changed to facilitate medical use.
Further plans include the change of use of a permitted retail area of 1,918 sq m to be changed to accommodate gymnasium use at ground and mezzanine floor levels, and permission is also being sought for the change of use of a permitted retail area at ground and mezzanine floor levels to instead house a crèche facility.
The proposed development, the site of which is bounded principally by Belgard Square West, Cookstown Way and the Luas Red Line, will also include the provision of a crèche drop-off/collection area at Belgard Square West.
There are provisions for minor elevational works, including the repair, replacement and reconfiguration of existing curtain walling, windows and cladding with materials, and all ancillary site development works.
A decision on the application is due from South Dublin County Council by January 23.
