Penin­sula build­ing lim­its only for LAP

Fingal Independent - - NEWS -

FIN­GAL County Coun­cil has told a lo­cal Fianna Fáil coun­cil­lor that hous­ing con­struc­tion lim­its on Don­abate penin­sula be­fore the new Don­abate Dis­trib­u­tor Road is op­er­a­tional, only ap­ply to lands within the Don­abate Lo­cal Area Plan.

Cllr Adrian Henchy asked the coun­cil to ‘con­firm the up­per limit of hous­ing units that can be both built and oc­cu­pied within both the cur­rent lo­cal area plan zoned lands and all other res­i­den­tial zon­ings within Don­abate Por­tane that can be oc­cu­pied be­fore the pro­posed Don­abate Dis­trib­u­tor Road be­comes fully op­er­a­tional’.

But the coun­cil re­sponded in writ­ing, say­ing: ‘The phased de­liv­ery of hous­ing re­lates only to those lands that are sub­ject to the Don­abate LAP that was adopted in March 2016 i.e. lands at Tur­vey, Rahillion, Cor­bal­lis East and West, Spires East and Bal­ly­ma­s­tone.’

Lay­ing out the lim­its on con­struc­tion on those sites be­fore the road is op­er­a­tional, the coun­cil ex­plained: ‘Circa 1,000 units can be pro­vided in Phase 1 on lands at Tur­vey, Rahillion, Cor­bal­lis West and a small area of land to the south of Smyth’s Pub be­fore the con­struc­tion and op­er­a­tion of the Dis­trib­u­tor Road.’

The lo­cal author­ity added: ‘Phase 2 pro­vides for the con­struc­tion of c.750 units on lands at Cor­bal­lis West, Cor­bal­lis East and Spires East, and prior to any units be­ing sold and oc­cu­pied on these lands, the Dis­trib­u­tor Road link­ing the Hearse Road to the Bal­car­rick Road must be op­er­a­tional.’

It con­cluded: ‘The fi­nal phased de­liv­ery of hous­ing and in­fra­struc­ture re­lates to circa 2,000 on lands at Cor­bal­lis East and Bal­ly­ma­s­tone. Con­struc­tion can­not be­gin on these units un­til the full Dis­trib­u­tor Road link­ing the Hearse Road to the Por­trane Road is op­er­a­tional.’ The an­swer comes in the con­text of in­creased lo­cal con­cern over the level of con­struc­tion on the penin­sula.
