Arcourt Ltd – who trade as the Sheldon Park Hotel - submitted plans to demolish seven cottages (8-14) on the Old Naas Road and build three apartment blocks ranging from four to six storeys.

A number of objections have been lodged by residents, who cite the historical value of cottages which date from 1908, and concerns about the proposed height of the development and traffic implications.

In the plans, DCC’s Road Streets and Traffic Department division has no objection to the proposed development subject to conditions, which include a construction management plan to be submitted to the planning authority.

Overall, the development is seeking to provide 18 one-bed units, 55 two-bed units and 12 three-bed units, all with associated balcony/ terrace private open space areas.

In April, city planners have called for the omission of eight units in Block C “until the relationship between Block C and number seven Old Naas Road and Bluebell Mews can be improved.”

The development contains provision for 86 car parking spaces, 85 bicycle spaces, vehicular access via Old Naas Road.

Up to 12 existing car parking spaces will be removed from the front of the Sheldon Park Hotel car park and relocated to the rear of the Sheldon Park Hotel to accommodate the development.

 Permission is also sought for all associated site development, services and landscape works.
