Go-ahead given for 77 apartments on Old Naas Road

THE Sheldon Park Hotel has been granted permission to build a development containing 77 apartments, at a site adjacent to their business premises on Kylemore Road.

Arcourt Ltd – who trade as the Sheldon Park Hotel - submitted plans with Dublin City Council to demolish seven cottages (numbers 8-14) on the Old Naas Road and build three apartment blocks containing 85 apartments.

However, Dublin City Council requested that one of the blocks – containing eight units – be omitted in the interest of protection of adjoining residential properties.

The two six-storey blocks granted permission are Block A (48 units – 12 one-bed, 36 two-bed) and Block B (six one-bed, 11 two-bed, 12 three-bed).

In granting permission for the development, Dublin City Council has requested the developer pay €864,000 in planning fees. Conditions within the planning application, state the developer shall pay a sum of €556,058 to the planning authority as a contribution towards expenditure. A separate condition requests the developer to pay €4,000 per residential unit (77 apartments) – a sum of €308,000.

Conditions also request the developer retain a licensed archaeologist to advise on archaeological implications during development.

Car-parking spaces are scheduled to be permanently allocated to proposed residential units and are not to be sold, rented, sub-let or leased to other parties.

All costs incurred by DCC, including any repairs to the public road and services necessary as a result of the development, are at the expense of the developer.

The site has been subject to numerous planning applications in recent years.

In 2015, An Bord Pleanála and Dublin City Council rejected plans by Arcourt for a four-storey development (38 apart-hotel suites and six apartments) at the same location – citing the “scale and height” of the project and “historical value” of cottages.

A number of objections were lodged by residents to the latest plans, reiterating their concerns about the historical value of cottages, which date from 1908.
