Special educational needs school planned for community residence
PLANS for the change of use of the community residence in Templeogue College into a special educational needs school have been submitted to South Dublin County Council.
The Libermann Trust CLG lodged the planning application last month, with proposed works including the reconfiguration and refurbishment of the existing building, with a new extension to the rear.
The revised internal layout consists of four classrooms and related ancillary school facilities, such as a reception area, a principal’s office, a staff room, student and staff toilets, and a sensory room.
The development will also consist of associated minor alterations to the existing facades, including replacing all existing windows, and new external classroom doors on the western elevation.
New gently sloped access ramps and external covered walkways are to be to the north, east and west elevations
The proposal includes the development of the rear garden, with provision of landscaping for two soft play areas, and the development of a new pedestrian access from Templeville Road.
A decision on the application is due from South Dublin County Council by December 20.
