Council seek further information on SIAC Planning Application - Fitzgerald
Senator Fitzgerald opposes the application based on:
The proposed heights of the residential buildings (up to 8 storeys high)
And the fact that it is proposing more retail units at a time when Clondalkin village has a number of vacant units.
Speaking about the Council's decision to write to the applicant seeking further information, Senator Fitzgerald said, "I believe South Dublin County Council has now asked the developer to provide more information on many aspects of the application including a number of questions regarding traffic plans and pedestrian safety in the locality."
"The developer has up to 6 months to submit this information and once it is received by the Council a decision will then be paid within 4 weeks. I will continue to oppose this planning application and should South Dublin County Council decide to grant permission I will then work with the local community to take this issue to An Bord Pleanala so all the concerns of the community can be fully heard and considered," concluded Senator Fitzgerald.
