SIAC Changes Planning Application for site on Monastery Road


SIAC have made significant changes to their planning application for their site on Monastery Road in Clondalkin.
“When this application was first lodged I held a public meeting on the issue and Cllrs Tony Delaney and Therese Ridge and I have all been keeping an eye on how the application is progressing,” explained Frances Fizgerald.
“South Dublin County Council asked for further information from the developers some months back and this information has now been supplied. As it is deemed significant information there will be another opportunity for local residents to have their say on the proposal,” continued Frances Fitzgerald.

“This information can be inspected at South Dublin County Council’s Planning Desk. The planning application number is SD10A/0064 and will be available online shortly. Residents have until August 24th to make submissions to the Council on this. If you have already lodged an objection or observation then you can make a submission free of charge but if you haven’t made any previous submissions a €20 fee will apply. Some residents are making their submissions through their local residents association or clubbing together with neighbours to spread the cost,” said Frances Fitzgerald.

“Among the additional information received was a traffic management proposal and significant changes in relation to the design, layout, scale and mass of the proposed development. The height of the proposed buildings facing onto Monastery Road was decreased to bring it in line with the height of the Shalamar apartment buildings, making the proposed building 4 storeys along Monastery Road. The developer has recommended the installation of a footpath along Monastery Road to link the development with Clondalkin Village. The number of proposed residential units was decreased by 40 and the commercial floor area decreased by 1,363 sqm. Overall the development area was reduced by 4,251sqm. These are just a sample of the changes which can be viewed in full at the Council, online, or through my office,” concluded Frances Fitzgerald.

Senator Frances Fitzgerald was among those to lodge objections to this proposed development with South Dublin County Council.
