Under the previous development plan, our client's lands, at [Redacted: Personal Information, was zoned 60% new community residential and 40% rural amenity. Unfortunately, in the recent draft development plan this line of zoning has moved for the [Redacted: Personal Information] to a fully rural zoning. This has a significant affect on our client's wish to develop on this portion of the lands, as the final user would not meet the rural housing needs critera. As mentioned, our client is developing a planning permission for submission to South Dublin County Council to develop these lands into 10no units of single occupancy social housing. This change in the development plan will greatly reduce this potential.
As agents, we held a pre-planning meeting with SDCC planning and roads departments on the 12th August 2021. At this meeting support for a scheme of this nature was conveyed by the planners and we are currently in the final stages of submitting that planning application in the coming weeks for consideration.
We ask that this area remain zoned new residential community and our planning application be considered for approval by the planners in the near future.
