Cloud over multi million scheme
THE FATE of a proposed multi-million euro development in Greystones hangs in the balance after a recent Bord Pleanála hearing following objections to the project.
The proposed scheme is to include a 32-room school, garda station, recycling centre and creche and the creation of up to 3,000 jobs pending a decision by the Board.
Located on the outskirts of Greystones at Charlesland, the planned development also includes a shopping centre, warehouses, homes and offices.
The brain-child of Zapi Developments, owned by Developer Sean Dunne and Sean Mulryan of Ballymore properties, objections to the building were entered by Ann Daly of SuperValu in Greystones, and rival developers Pizarro.
Ballymore is the development company behind the much scaled-down Florentine project currently under construction in Bray. The Florentine, a potential rival to the Greystones scheme, was to be a shopping centre with apartments but will now be one smaller section of retail units with some parking.
