Proposed development would contravene Local Area Plan
A PLANNING application seeking to make an amendment to units and construct six two-storey dwellings at the Cornerpark development in Newcastle has been refused permission.
Dragonglen Limited filed the application in December 2021 seeking to make an amendment to units 10 to 15 at Cornerpark Rise, Cornerpark Townland off the Peamount Road in Newcastle.
Plans were for the construction of six two-storey, three-bedroom terraced dwellings.
All associated site development works, car parking, landscaping, open spaces, public lighting and connections to fouls and water-drainage/attenuation systems and mains water supply were part of the proposals.
South Dublin County Council refused permission on the basis that the removal of the road up the northern boundary and re-location of six dwellings westward would contravene a condition set out in the original planning application.
Permission was first granted for the Cornerpark development in November 2019.
The local planning authority granted permission subject to a list of 24 conditions – that were required to be met.
One of the conditions was in relation to the road network within the subject site and required that Road One cease prior to the front of Units 13 and 14.
Units 14 to 19 were required to be relocated in a westerly direction with footpath, privacy strip and private amenity space for units 13 and 14 absorbed into the space.
A bin storage was also included in part of the condition.
This recent planning application, which was filed on December 9, was seeking to amend the already approved scheme as set out in a revised compliance layout approved by the council in August, 2021.
The application was made on foot of the aforementioned conditions by making provision for a vehicular access and footpath to the north boundary of the development.
In the planning authority’s decision to refuse permission on February 11, 2022, it came to the conclusion that the proposed development would contravene that condition and be contrary to the Newcastle Local Area Plan.
