Residents object to plans for three-storey apartment building

By Aideen O'Flaherty

PLANS for a three-storey apartment building at Carrigmore View in Aylesbury, Tallaght, have attracted ten objections from residents in the area and local politicians.

Developer JAS Ventures lodged a planning application with South Dublin County Council earlier this year, seeking permission for the construction of a three-storey building, to provide two one-bed apartments at ground floor level and two two-bed duplex apartments at first and second floor level.

The plans for the apartments have been lodged for this site

Provision for new vehicular access and car parking to front gardens and all associated site works is included in the plans.

This is the second time the developer has lodged plans for the Carrigmore site, as JAS submitted a planning application for an identical development last year, and while it was granted planning permission by the council, An Bord Pleanála refused permission after a third-party appeal.

The site, which is adjacent to 23 Carrigmore View, was also the subject of a separate planning application by Gary Smith in 2017.

Mr Smith received permission for the construction of two semi-detached, three-bed houses at the site in November 2017, however the development did not go ahead.

In relation to JAS Ventures’ current application for planning permission, the St Martin’s Residents’ Association lodged an objection to their plans on a number of grounds.

These grounds include concerns about the potential overdevelopment the apartment block could cause, the overshadowing of neighbouring houses, the “poor design” of the proposed apartments, a lack of integration with surrounding buildings, and the potentially negative impact on the streetscape.

Three other residents also lodged separate objections to the plans, outlining similar concerns in relation to the potential impact the development could have in the locality.

Local politicians across all parties, including Mick Duff, Dermot Richardson, Charlie O’Connor, Teresa Costello, Baby Pereppadan, and Liam Sinclair, lodged submissions supporting the residents’ association’s objection, and issues raised by local residents.

South Dublin County Council requested additional information from the developer last month.

The requested additional information includes computer-generated images of the proposal showing the relationship it will have with the adjoining development, revised plans which pull the proposed building back from the southern boundary of the site, and revised proposals for the location of bin storage.

The applicant has six months to submit the requested additional information.
