Roadstone environmental impact considerations raise ‘serious concerns’

SOUTH Dublin County Council has expressed "serious concerns" regarding how Roadstone Ltd has addressed environmental impact considerations and how these considerations inform two of their applications for planning permission.

Roadstone lodged two separate applications for planning permission, one application is for retention concerning their site at Belgard Townland in Fortunestown, and another application is for planning permission and retention concerning their site at Belgard and Whitehall Townlands in Fortunestown.

Roadstone Cookstown Rd

The first application, concerning Belgard Townland, is for the retention of a range of structures, including a 106.2 sq.m two-storey retail display shop, a 180.8 sq.m office, a paving product sample shed, a storage shed, a water tank and a retail concrete plant.

Other structures which are listed on the application for retention include two dry mortar 'Flomix' silos, a storage portacabin, a security hut, a 23-space car park, a security hut and barrier entrance.

The second application, concerning Belgard and Whitehall Townlands, contains a submission for the retention of the 697 sq.m single-storey Roadstone main office, the single-storey ISAC Office, eight storage portacabins and a storage container.

Other structures which form part of the application for retention include an LPG gas store vessel, an office bin storage area, four 4.75m high lampposts, two 6.1m high lampposts, three security camera posts, a 'Tricel' effluent treatment system and sand polishing filter, and two car parks - one comprised of 73 spaces and another comprised of 35 spaces.

There is also a proposed development of a 30 sq.m single-storey additional office space within the existing courtyard of the main office building.

In respect of both applications, South Dublin County Council requested additional information from Roadstone Ltd, including a watermain drawing, a fully detailed landscape plan and a "detailed response regarding the need for an Environmental Report or EIS (Environmental Impact Statement) relating to all current applications."

A decision for both applications is due from the council by March 27.
