Mixed-use development refused extension of permission in Newcastle as nursing home approved

By Laura Lyne

PLANS for the development of mixed-use residential and medical development in Newcastle have been halted, after an extension of permission for the previously approved development was refused by South Dublin County Council.


The application was submitted by developer Liam Butler, who also submitted a separate application for the extension of permission for a 64-bedroom nursing home, which was granted.

A refusal of permission for the residential and medical development was given as the proposed development “would materially contravene specific objectives of the Local Area Plan” as there have been “significant changes” in the development objectives for the local area.


The concerns with the development included the dwelling mix, the building heights, a failure to retain existing burgage hedges and the requirement for a connection to the Glebe Estate.


Permission for the development of the nursing home has been extended to March 2021, as South Dublin County Council found that the proposal is in accordance with the Planning and Development Act 2000.
