Vecglen have submitted additional information on request from the council on a number of aspects, including electrical, engineer’s report, road plans, upgrade works to Ballymount Road, service plans, and autotrack vehicle plans.

According to the plans, the applicants have submitted a number of design changes from the original proposed development to primarily address the urban design/layout of roads and traffic concerns raised.

Key changes include the removal of HGV fueling and parking facilities, relocation of the petrol station closer to the street edge to provide for better frontage to Calmount Road, Ballymount Avenue and the access road to Fashion City.

Changes also include amended vehicle circulation internally with new spine road to accommodate HGV ‘service traffic’ required to facilitate the operation of the proposed facilities, and improved pedestrian access and provision of a tree avenue.

A decision on the proposed development has yet to be made by the council.
