ABP approves Lynam Development

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

An Bord Pleanála have given the go ahead to the high rise development by EP Lynam Properties Ltd  (FW09A/0019) on the Clonsilla road.  The site, which is at the Link road across from the funeral home, was considered by many to be unsuitable for four and five story apartment blocks. The appeal was submitted by Portersgate Residents Association with the assistance of a professional planner.

Writing with Leo Varadkar T.D. in support of the Portersgate appeal I suggested that the need to retain and protect the unique character of this part of Clonsilla village outweighed any requirements for higher density at the location. 

Attaching 22 conditions, the Bord made their decision “having regard to the zoning of the site, the pattern of development in the vicinity and the proximity of the site to public transport infrastructure, it is considered that the proposed development constitutes a sustainable form of development at this location, would not seriously injure the visual and residential amenities of the area and would be in accordance with the proper planning and sustainable development of the area.”
