Shopping Centre covered canopy plans upheld

By Aideen O'Flaherty

SOUTH Dublin County Council’s decision to grant permission for the development of a covered canopy and a new entrance at SuperValu in Knocklyon has been upheld by An Bord Pleanála, following an appeal by a local resident.

Musgrave, the wholesale supplier behind SuperValu, Centra and Daybreak, lodged the plans with South Dublin County Council last April.

SuperValu in Knocklyon decision to develop a covered canopy approved by council upheld by An Bord Pleanala

In their application, the wholesaler outlined plans for the demolition of the existing trolley bay and glazed entrance lobby on the south-western corner of the SuperValu unit.

The demolition is to make way for the construction of a covered canopy on the eastern wall of the shop to serve as a ‘click and collect’ facility.

Permission was also sought for internal alterations in the SuperValu unit, to include the provision of a seating area/toilets and the relocation of the existing post office unit, and construction of a new mezzanine floor at the rear of the check-outs in the shop unit for a seating area.

The council granted permission for the plans last September, with a number of conditions.

Some of these conditions include the requirement for the mezzanine floor to be used as a seating area, and the stipulation that any further advertisement signs at the site would require a further grant of permission.

Ballyroan resident Brian Sherry lodged an appeal against the council’s decision last September, with his primary concerns being the relocation of the bicycle parking area, the circulation of pedestrian, bicycle and vehicle movement at the site, and parking spaces for people with disabilities.

An Bord Pleanála upheld the council’s decision to grant permission for the development, when they gave it the green light on February 8.
