€10 million primary care health centre will become home to Department of Public Health

By Laura Lyne

A €10 million primary care centre for the former Packard Electric complex on the Airton Road has been given the green light adjacent to a site that is also set to include new Harvey Norman and Costa Coffee stores.

The Kilnamanagh Tymon Primary Care Centre will see 5,900 sq.m. of the Junction House building changed to medical use for a number of services, including community nursing, occupational therapy and physiotherapy, speech and language therapy and child and adult counselling services.

It will also become home to the Department of Public Health and will include a GP out-of-hours service,

A decision to grant permission for the development was given on January 28 and was met with no objections from local businesses or residents.

Three GPs from the local area are understood to have already committed to re-locating to the primary care centre, which is the second of three centres earmarked for the wider Tallaght and Citywest area.

It will join the Tallaght Cross/Springfield primary care centre due to open later this year and will be followed by a centre which will be based in Citywest and which is currently at early discussion stages.

As part of the grant of permission, a condition has been attached to the parking spaces for the complex which is to be used by the primary care centre and the Harvey Norman and Costa Coffee stores for the public, with no designated spaces except for disabled spaces.

The office site was sold last year alongside the Airton Retail Park which is set to become home to Harvey Norman and Costa Coffee for more than their combined €4.8m asking price, with a non-disclosure agreement attached to the sale of the properties.

Both developments will see new life within the Airton Road complex, which has been sitting vacant since it was built in 2008.
