Draft Ballyogan and Environs Local Area Plan - Chief Executives' Report on Submissions Received

Additional documents:

It was AGREED to continue with Item No. 6 at this time.

C/408

Pages 3 and 4: Introduction

Additional documents:

The Executives Report on pages 3 and 4 was NOTED.

 

C/409

Pages 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11: 2. Submission by the Office of the Planning Regulator

Additional documents:

The following summary of submission received was CONSIDERED:

 

“(i) The submission by the Office of the Planning Regulator (OPR) makes 4 no. recommendations for inclusion in the finalised LAP.

 

1. The forthcoming adoption of the Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (RSES) for the Eastern and Midlands Regional Assembly area will shortly trigger a State-wide requirement for Local Authorities to undertake a review of their City/County Development Plans in order to determine consistency with the RSES. By variation to or review, County Development Plans could in turn prompt a subsequent review of Local Area Plans to ensure consistency with the varied / new ‘parent’ County Development Plan. The OPR recommends the insertion of a written objective to the effect of the above in the finalised BELAP.

 

2. The Draft LAP indicates, in broad terms, a potential delivery of c. 4,300 new homes in the BELAP area. The OPR recommends this should be broken down in more detail on a site/area basis. The OPR recommends a summary table indicating the estimated housing yield for the substantial sites identified in the LAP.

 

3. Timely delivery of required infrastructure and amenities is critical in ensuring that development proceeds in a planned manner and that longer-term infrastructural deficits are avoided or mitigated. The OPR recommends inclusion of an overall ‘Implementation and Infrastructural Delivery Schedule’.

 

4. The OPR recommends that the conclusions and requirements of the Strategic Flood Risk Assessment should be more clearly integrated with the written statement of the LAP.”

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

The Executive notes the content of the submission.

 

In relation to recommendation 1, a written objective as requested will be inserted into the Final LAP.

 

In relation to recommendation 2, a summary table as requested will be inserted into the Final LAP.

 

In relation to recommendation 3, the Plan area is currently well served in relation to the quantum and distribution of strategic hard infrastructure. The Sandyford High Level Water Supply Scheme – completed in 2011 – guarantees security and resilience in relation to future water supply not just for the Plan area but the wider environs – including Sandyford Business District and the evolving Kilternan-Glenamuck area. The major trunk sewer laid from Kilgobbin Road to the Carrickmines Interchange, and ultimately draining via Cherrywood to the Shanganagh Wastewater Treatment Plant has, unlike Ringsend, considerable surplus treatment capacity. It is acknowledged more local upgrades may be necessary as significant sites are opened up, but any such works will essentially be developer-led.

 

The Plan area is traversed by the M50 corridor and ‘bookended’ at its western and eastern ends by, Junction 14 (Leopardstown) and Junction 15 (Carrickmines). The two junctions are directly connected by the Ballyogan Road/Murphystown Way District Distributor Road corridor which was fundamentally and radically upgraded in tandem with the construction works of the Luas Green Line B1 Extension Project, connecting Sandyford and Cherrywood. All junctions along the upgraded corridor are signalised (and synchronised to the parallel Luas signalling system) and  ...  view the full minutes text for item C/409

C/414

Pages 17 and 18: 4. Transport and Movement 4.1.2 (i) Public Transport

Additional documents:

The following summary of submission received was CONSIDERED:

 

“A number of submissions raise concerns relating to the capacity of the Luas.

 

The recent revisions to NTA’s MetroLink plans – to now terminate at Charlemont as opposed to Sandyford as originally proposed – calls into question the capacity of the Luas Green Line to facilitate the significant anticipated population growth in the BELAP plan area.”

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“The recently announced (March 2019) decision to terminate the current phase of MetroLink at Charlemont has precipitated further focus on the requirement to expedite and accelerate the delivery of the Luas Green Line Enhancement Scheme – aimed at incrementally increasing overall capacity in the network through a combination of larger rolling stock and increased frequencies during the am and pm peak periods.

 

At a recent presentation to DLR Officials by Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) it was advised that the current maximum carrying capacity in the morning peak is c. 6,408 passenger demand per direction per hour (ppdph).

 

Phase 1 of the Green Line Enhancement Scheme involves extending the existing twenty six 43-metre-long trams to 55 metres in length and the delivery of an additional eight new 55 metre trams to the Green Line fleet. The new trams are already on order and it is anticipated this phase of enhancement will be completed by 2021 and provide carrying capacity of c. 8,800 passengers per hour. Phase 2 of the Enhancement Scheme involves operating 30 no. 55 metre trams per hour (in each direction) – one very two minutes – which will increase carrying capacity to c. 11,000 ppdph. Phase 3 (post 2039) will see the Luas Green Line upgraded to MetroLink providing a carrying capacity of up to 18,000 ppdph. TII have advised that the Green Line Enhancement Project is currently in train and is being advanced as a separate project.

 

In addition to the above, it is important to acknowledge that the Luas Green Line is not the only public transport option available to serve the BELAP area as it develops and grows. As the area evolves the National Transport Authority will be required to expand and improve the quantum, frequency and number of bus routes serving the area.

 

Recommendation

In light of the recent MetroLink proposals, amend the Draft LAP as follows:

 

Page 16 - Amend Section 4.3.2 Policy BELAP MOV7 – Public Transport Improvements to read:

 

Policy BELAP MOV7 - To support and promote any and all improvements to capacity and service levels on the Luas Green Line corridor, including the delivery, in time, of the provision of a Metro grade service from Dublin Airport via the City Centre to Sandyford, and to support and promote any and all improvements to bus services and routing serving the area.”

The following summary of submission received was CONSIDERED:

 

“Submission welcomes the recognition of the Park, Carrickmines as an appropriate location for higher buildings, and for the development of residential development and Build-to-Rent accommodation. Notwithstanding, the submission recommends amendment of several provisions and policies within the Draft Plan including, inter alia:

 

• Increased minimum residential density at The Park;

• There should be no restriction on the provision of residential uses at ground floor level. Proposals for residential use should be considered on a case by case basis.

• Policy BELAP Res4 should be amended as it is considered to be contradictory to provisions included elsewhere in the Plan, notably Policy BELAP RET16 – Residential Uses and Policy BELAP RES8 – Build to Rent.

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“A significant component of the submission’s case for a more flexible approach towards residential development at The Park, Carrickmines would appear to be grounded in an inference that SLO Objective 131 has a degree of primacy over the ‘E’ Zoning Objective at the lands. Statements such as ‘…the SLO for a mixed use neighbourhood centre on these lands qualifies the interpretation of the E Zoning Objective for the wider area’ and, ‘…having regard to the fact that the ‘E’ Zoning of the lands at The Park is interpreted in the context of SLO 131 for a mixed use neighbourhood centre…’ fails to appropriately recognise the primacy of the land use zoning objective for the lands as Objective E ‘To provide for economic development and employment’. Employment zoned lands are identified in the County Development Plan - and Specific Local Objective 131, that relates to the provision of a Neighbourhood Centre and leisure facilities at these lands - is specific to these ‘E’ zoned lands only. The Objective provides for land uses that would normally only be ‘Open for Consideration’ and does not extend to any more than that.

 

Employment zoned lands at Carrickmines are of strategic importance to the County for the delivery of high intensity employment. The relative quantum of employment zoned lands in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown is low in the context of the other Dublin Authorities. There is a total of almost 300 hectares of employment lands within the County – only c. 60 hectares of which is greenfield, undeveloped land. Fingal County Council, by comparison, has a total of almost 2,700 hectares of employment land and South Dublin County Council has over 1,000 hectares of enterprise and employment zoned land. There is thus a degree of scarcity to employment zoned lands within the County, and a heightened need to protect these lands for employment uses in line with their zoning objective. The County Development Plan and Local Area Plan focus on safeguarding and delivering this objective. Any proposals for residential development at The Park will be considered in the context of its ‘E’ zoning objective, SLO 131 and associated policies contained in the LAP. It is thus not considered  ...  view the full minutes text for item C/423

The following summary of submission received was CONSIDERED:

 

“Submission states that Policy BELAP EMP2 – Non-Employment Uses: ‘To ensure that any new uses on lands zoned ‘E’ within the BELAP area – aside from the lands subject to CDP SLO 131 (Neighbourhood Centre) at the Park Carrickmines - shall be restricted to uses deemed ‘Permitted in Principle' for this zoning objective…’ is not consistent with the parent County Development Plan 2016-2022 as it removes ‘Open for Consideration’ uses from the zoning objective, as set out in the Development Plan for ‘E’ zoned lands.

Submissions requests that Policy BELAP EMP2 be omitted from the Draft Plan.”

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“Employment zoned lands within the BELAP area are of strategic importance to the County for the delivery of high intensity employment. The relative quantum of employment zoned lands in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown is low in the context of the other Dublin Authorities.

The following summary of submission received was CONSIDERED:

 

“The submission by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht suggests that ‘environment’ should be given greater prominence in Chapter 9 – Leisure and Environment. Submission notes that Section 9.1.7 deals with natural heritage and states the area is rich in fauna and flora, however no references are given to allow policy to be developed in relation to these natural heritage assets.

 

Comments that the Habitat Survey referred to in the SEA appears to be over 10 years old and that no protected mammal surveys (bats, otter, badger) appear to have been carried out. Seeks a commitment that habitat and protected mammal surveys of the Plan area will be carried out within the lifetime of the Plan.

 

Critical of three policies relating to Green Infrastructure which primarily address improving pedestrian and cycle links. While generally welcomed as a positive contribution towards sustainable travel in the Plan area it is important to differentiate between the primary function – the movement of people – and any secondary

benefits arising from the development and upgrading of the pedestrian/cycle network.

 

Submission notes that while pollinators are mentioned in the context of the proposed Masterplan for Jamestown Park, there appears to be no wider commitment within the LAP to manage lands in accordance with the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan 2015-2020.”

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“The submission does not appear to have recognised or acknowledged the context of the hierarchy of statutory spatial plans and that Local Area Plans are ‘subservient to’ and required to be fully consistent with the overarching ‘parent’ County Development Plan (CDP) – in this case the 2016-2022 DLR CDP.

 

Section 4.1 of the CDP – Landscape, Natural Heritage and Biodiversity contains 36 no. policy objectives, the majority of which are strategic, and consequently have County-wide application e.g. preservation of Landscape Character Areas, High Amenity Zones, Coastal Zone Management, Protection of Natural Heritage and Environment, Habitats Directive, Biodiversity Plans, Designated Sites, County-wide Ecological Network, Hedgerows etc. Section 4.2 contains a further 15 no. policies relating to open space and recreation. It is noted that the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht’s submission on the Draft CDP (March – May 2015) stated that, ‘The Department welcomes the strong policies in the Plan to protect natural heritage, protected sites and biodiversity’. It is thus considered that the Department’s comments are balanced by the significant number of environmental policies contained in the County Development Plan.

 

In relation to the request for a commitment to update Habitat Survey of the Plan area it is proposed the Draft Plan be amended to incorporate same.

 

The references to separating out the primary function and any potential secondary benefits arising from the introduction of both improved and new pedestrian cycle networks throughout the Plan area are acknowledged. While retaining the crossing points of the M50 within the final LAP (see Policy BELAP MOV12 – New Linkages), it is

Pages 50 and 51: 12. Site Development Frameworks, (ii)Site Development Framework: Kilgobbin

Additional documents:

The following summary of submission received was CONSIDERED:

 

“Submission relates to Oldtown House (a Protected Structure), its associated curtilage, and undeveloped greenfield/agricultural lands immediately to the east of the property. The submission supports the density bands proposed in the Site Development Framework.

 

The submission notes that Oldtown House has existing vehicular access onto Kilgobbin Road and submits that development at the ‘core’ Oldtown House curtilage should be allowed to avail of that existing access, subject to detailed design and assessment of the

use of same. Submission seeks to have same recognised through text and illustrations in the Site Development Framework.

 

Notes that the indicative alignment of the Loop Road in Figure 12.8 is not consistent with the alignment indicated in the County Development Plan Zoning Map 6 and submits that the alignment should be closer to that identified in the County Development Plan, which has regard to archaeological features in the area. The submission includes a diagram suggesting proposed re-alignment.

 

The submission welcomes indication on Figure 12.8 of accesses from the Loop Road to adjoining development sites. Recommends inclusion of narrative to include requirement for road connections to be provided to serve development of the subject site.”

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

Oldtown House is but one of a number of individual properties in the BELAP area accessing directly onto Kilgobbin Road. It would be inappropriate to afford Oldtown House and adjacent lands some special status in relation to the Site Development Framework regarding access arrangements. The most appropriate and optimum access

arrangement for these lands is set out in the Kilgobbin Site Development Framework (Section 12) that states ‘Vehicular access for all new residential development within the SDF will be provided via the Loop Road and/or its feeder routes.’. Regard should also be had to the 2016-2022 County Development Plan ‘Long Term Road Objective’ to retain Kilgobbin Road, between Ballyogan Road and Kilgobbin Lane, ‘…as an attractive ‘country’ road’.

 

All County Development Plan Maps include quite clear caveats that any road proposals shown are indicative only and could be subject to change/amendments as detailed design is advanced. The Loop Road alignment shown in the current 2016-2022 County Development Plan is effectively a legacy from the non-statutory Stepaside Action Area Plan (SAAP) drafted in 1999 prior to the publication of the Planning and Development Act 2000, which introduced for the first time, statutory Local Area Plans. The alignment shown in the SAAP was extremely notional and without the benefit of topographical or engineering analysis and was simply shown to embed the principle of there being two signal controlled junctions on the Ballyogan Road with a loop road connecting both to facilitate shared loading at the junctions and to provide options in terms of emergency access. It is acknowledged, however, that Figures 12.4 and 12.8 do not include a caveat similar to that contained in the County Development Plan, and it is thus recommended that the Draft Plan be amended to  ...  view the full minutes text for item C/436
