345 apartments require ‘further consideration’

By Aideen O'Flaherty

PLANS for the development of 345 apartments at the former Cable and Wireless site at the junction of Airton Road and Belgard Road in Tallaght require “further consideration/amendment”, according to An Bord Pleanála (ABP).

The plans for the Strategic Housing Development (SHD) were lodged with ABP by Power Scaffolding Supplies Limited last April through the fast-track scheme.

Recently introduced fast-track legislation means developers can apply directly to ABP for planning permission, following a pre-application consultation with South Dublin County Council.

The government brought the new fast-track legislation into effect last year in response to the housing crisis, and the legislation applies to SHDs, which are large-scale housing developments.

The developer is seeking permission for the construction of 345 apartments, a crèche, and a media and business centre, with provision for all associated site works.

On May 29 last, ABP ruled that that the application “requires further consideration/amendment”.
