Irish Independent - Business Week - - Commercial Property - Ron­ald Quin­lan

BUILDER Wil­liam Neville & Sons has se­cured plan­ning per­mis­sion from Dun Laoghaire Rath­down County Coun­cil for the con­struc­tion of 313 homes in the new town of Cher­ry­wood in South Dublin.

While the de­vel­oper had ap­plied to build 322 units com­pris­ing 242 apart­ments and 80 houses on the site, the coun­cil’s plan­ners have di­rected that a to­tal of nine apart­ments be omit­ted from the top floors of six blocks within the scheme.

The re­moval of the units is just one of 66 con­di­tions be­ing im­posed by the coun­cil as part of its de­ci­sion to al­low the pro­posed de­vel­op­ment.

Wil­liam Neville & Sons sub­mit­ted its ap­pli­ca­tion for the scheme in Au­gust of last year within days of the de­ci­sion by Dun Laoghaire Rath­down County Coun­cil to al­ter the plan­ning for the Cher­ry­wood Strate­gic De­vel­op­ment Zone (SDZ) to al­low for smaller apart­ment sizes within the town.

Ex­tend­ing across 400 acres on both sides of the M50 mo­tor­way south of Cabin­teely, Cher­ry­wood will upon com­ple­tion com­prise in ex­cess of 8,000 homes, ac­com­mo­dat­ing up­wards of 30,000 peo­ple.

While 11 dif­fer­ent landown­ers con­trol sites within the SDZ, US-head­quar­tered real es­tate gi­ant, Hines, is the main en­tity driv­ing its de­liv­ery.

Ear­lier this sum­mer, the com­pany re­ceived the green light from coun­cil plan­ners for its plans to de­velop Cher­ry­wood’s 2.1 mil­lion square foot town cen­tre.

Work on the €1bn mixed-use scheme is set to get un­der­way by the end of this year, and will see the de­liv­ery over the next three years of 1,269 build-to-rent apart­ments along­side 585,000 sq ft of re­tail, of­fice and leisure space.
