Luttrellstown Community College Granted Planning Permission

Friday, June 1, 2012

Fingal County Council have granted planning permission for Luttrellstown Community College and a nine room extension to Scoil Choilim primary school at Porterstown. Both schools are operated by County Dublin VEC.

This is really good news for the Clonsilla and Carpenterstown area. Fine Gael got a lot of criticism from the left wing parties when we supported rezoning land for the school sites. As well as the badly needed schools, the community and sports facilities will be a fantastic asset for the local area.  

The new Luttrellstown Community College will be a 2 storey school building with 20 specialist classrooms, 18 general classrooms, general purpose hall, library/resource room, offices, staff areas and ancillary accommodation with a total floor area C. 7149 m.sq. 

The College will have 5 new ballcourts, bicycle racks and 36 new carparking spaces and will be located on the southern side of Scoil Choilm. Scoil Choilm which is currently a 16 classroom primary school, will get a new special needs unit and a 2 story 8 classroom extension. 

At the eastern side of Scoil Choilm a new 16 classroom primary school is to be constructed to include a special needs unit and ancillary accommodation as well as 34 carparking spaces. 

In keeping with the Fingal schools model a new community centre and sports hall will be constructed on the Campus. Outside there will be 4 new ballcourts and parking spaces. 

Site works will include new access roads, turning circles and set down areas off the new Porterstown Link Road which is due for completion by the end of March. 

Following a submission from the local Porterstown and Homely Residents Association, the Department of Education relocated the school on the site. This required that additional information had to be provided to the planning authority which delayed the decision.
