Amend Section 3.2 - The Waterfront of Appendix 12 by amending the last sentence of the fourth paragraph as follows,

 

Analysis of the overall Harbour area indicates that it comprises of several areas which are of distinct character. This character, in turn, points to certain appropriate uses. It is considered that Cultural and Leisure uses will generally cluster to the east of St Michael?s Wharf - on the Carlisle Pier and along the East Pier - creating symbiotic linkages with the recently completed dlr LexIcon and the National Maritime Museum. Marine Activities and Enterprise are more likely to cluster around the Irish Lights Headquarters, Coastguard Station and Cottages and the Coal Harbour while traditional sail, fishing and boating activities will be concentrated at the West Pier and The Gut. occur across the entire Harbour area.’”

Motion No. 90 SLO/HARBOUR AND Motion Nos. 33 & 34 from the floor pdf icon PDF 78 KB

It was proposed by Councillor J. Madigan and seconded by Councillor V. Boyhan.

 

“That this Planning Authority pursuant to Section 12 of the Planning and Development Act, 2000 (as amended) resolves to amend the Draft Development Plan as follows:

 

To add a new Specific Local Objective (SLO) for Dun Laoghaire Harbour as follows;

To Develop a National Watersports Centre to facilitate training and participation in a range of water sports and to host major national and international watersports events

 

Explanatory Text:

 

“It is the policy of the council to facilitae and promote the development of a National Watersports Centre at the site of the former HHS terminal building and neighbouring marshalling area within the period of the Development Plan. The council recognises that Dun Laoghaire Harbour is a unique watersports facility of national and international significance.

 

It is an objective of the council that the National Watersports Centre will facilitate training and participation in a range of water sports and host major national and international watersports events. The National Watersports Centre will be developed to open up and increase access to the waters of Dun Laoghaire Harbour for all.

 

The council recognises that the National Watersports Centre will be a local and national assest and will develop water based sports for the benefit of residents and has a significant potential to grow tourism related to national and international events hosted at the centre.”

 

Reason:

 

The termination of the HSS ferry service has created a fantastic opportunity for Dun Laoghaire town and harbour to provide a new facility of national significance for water based sports at the very centre of the harbour, whilst at the same time opening up access to the water front for all.

 

This can be addressed by the development of a National Watersports Centre. This centre would be the focal point for training and participation in a range of water sports and would host major international and national sailing and other water sports events. The sports that will be facilitated can include sailing, kayaking, rowing, paddle boarding windsurfing triathlons and scuba diving.

 

Dun Laoghaire Harbour is already established as a unique sporting facility of national and international significance.

 

A state of the art National Watersports Centre can be developed in the heart of Dun Laoghaire converting existing and now redundant facilities at relatively low cost.

 

The business case for such a centre is good. Attracting hundreds of sailors to stay in Dun Laoghaire throughout the year will be of considerable benefit to the town.

 

The location of a National Watersports Centre at St Michael’s wharf in the centre of Dun Laoghaire town is superior to the leading examples in Europe which are generally located at a remove from the town centre. It is close to the capital city and has first class local, national and international transport links which will be very attractive to competitors.

 

The waters and weather of Dun Laoghaire harbour and Dublin Bay offer some of the best all year round sailing in Europe.

 

This will enable Dun Laoghaire to build on its established reputation for providing world class international sailing events and is a popular destination for competing sailors.”

 

AnCathaoirleach, Councillor B. Saul, declared the Motion FALLS.

It was proposed by Councillor M. Halpin K. Gill and seconded by Councillor B. Ward .

 

“That this Planning Authority pursuant to Section 12 of the Planning and Development Act, 2000 (as amended) resolves to amend the Draft Development Plan as follows:

 

Dún Laoghaire Urban Framework Plan 

 

Page 15 Central Harbour Area

 

Insert after first paragraph:

 

It is universally acknowledged that Dún Laoghaire and in particular Dún Laoghaire Harbour is the home of sailing in Ireland.   It is the key access for sailing in Dublin Bay.  The sport of sailing in all its manifestations including junior sailing, wag sailing, sail ability for the disabled, Special needs sailing, cruising, racing right up to Olympic training are all dependant on the unique water resource of Dún Laoghaire Harbour and its' easy access to Dublin Bay. 

 

Dún Laoghaire Harbour is a world class sailing venue and the location of the Harbour within the town centre of Dún Laoghaire provides a unique opportunity for the future development of a National Watersports Academy that would foster the entire spectrum of water sports, including sailing, both in Dún Laoghaire and across Ireland.  The experience to date from the holding of International sailing events in Dún Laoghaire is that such events have contributed significantly to the cultural and social identity of Dún Laoghaire and it's unique sense of place.  Moreover they have contributed significantly and economically to the local economy and the national economy.  The integration of and the protection and development of Dún Laoghaire Harbour for watersports and sailing and the development of a Watersports Academy allied to the development of Dún Laoghaire Town centre as a destination for international sailing and watersport events provides for a truly sustainable vision for Dún Laoghaire Harbour and Dún Laoghaire Town Centre for the future.  It is the policy of the Council to support this vision and to ensure that all other policies and objectives seek to reinforce the achievement of this vision.”

New SLO Dún Laoghaire/Monkstown

 

The future vision for Dún Laoghaire is inextricably bound to the sea.  Dun Laoghaire Harbour defines a unique sense of identity and place and its location at the heart of Dún Laoghaire Town centre offers the opportunity for the development of a National Watersports Academy that would facilitate national and international sailing events and other marine related events such as rowing, triathlons etc.  Such a Maritime Academy would support the future of Dún Laoghaire as a Maritime Centre of Excellence in line with the evolving role and function of Dun Laoghaire as a Regional Tier 3 Port in line with the National Ports Policy focussing on recreation and sailing.  The removal of the HSS Ferry Infrastructure is timely in supporting the development of such a National Watersports Academy within the period of the Development Plan and supports a sustainable vision for the future of Dún Laoghaire Harbour.”

Motion No. 93 SLO HARBOUR pdf icon PDF 37 KB

It was proposed by Councillor V. Boyhan and Councillor M. Merrigan and AGREED to WITHDRAW Motion No. 93 on the Agenda as follows:

 

“That this Planning Authority pursuant to Section 12 of the Planning and Development Act, 2000 (as amended) resolves to amend the Draft Development Plan as follows:

 

Specific Local Objective (Dún Laoghaire Harbour)

 

Proposal:

 

That, a new Specific Local Objective (SLO) for Dún Laoghaire Harbour as follows. "To develop National Watersports Academy on the site of the former HSS Ferry Terminal and car marshalling area in Dun Laoghaire Harbour."

 

Reasons:

 

The termination of the HSS Ferry service has created a fantastic opportunity for Dun Laoghaire Town and harbour to provide a new facility of national significance for water based sports at the very centre of the harbour, whilst at the same time opening up access to the water front for all and reconnecting the harbour to the Town. This can be addressed by the development of a National Watersports Academy.

 

This centre would be the focal point for training and participation in a range of water sports and would host major international and national sailing and other water sports events. The sports that will be facilitated can include sailing, kayaking, rowing, paddle boarding windsurfing triathlons and scuba diving.

 

This would be a national watersports equivalent of the National Sports Campus Project at Abbotstown. This will also enable Dún Laoghaire to build on its established reputation for providing world class international sailing events and is a popular destination for competing sailors and would pride very significant economic benefits to Dún Laoghaire town centre.”

ii) “Submission welcomes the Green Infrastructure Strategy (GIS). However, disappointment is noted in relation to how little reference there is to the GIS within the Written Statement itself. A number of Sections where reference to the GIS should be provided include:

 

·         Policy E18: Sustainable Drainage Systems

·         Policy CC15: Flood Risk Assessment

·         Policy UD3: Public Realm Design

·         Section 8.2.4: Sustainable Travel and Transport

·         Section 8.2.7: Landscape, Heritage and Biodiversity

·         Section 8.2.8: Open Space and Recreation

·         Section 8.2.10.4: Flood Risk Management.

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Chief Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“The Chief Executive notes the contents of this submission.

 

The Green Infrastructure Strategy is already copiously referenced in the Draft Plan; vis:

 

·         Section 2.2 Sustainable Travel and Transportation

·         Section 4.1 Landscape, Heritage and Biodiversity

·         Section 4.2 Open Space and Recreation and

·         Section 8.2 Development Management (Section 8.2.3.1 - Quality Residential Design,

 

8.2.7.1 - Biodiversity and 8.2.8.3 - Public/Communal Open Space – Quality).

Having carefully considered the contents of this submission the Chief Executive considers that the Draft Plan should be amended to include reference to the Green Infrastructure Strategy in Policy EI8: Sustainable Drainage Systems.

 

It is not considered appropriate to add references in Policy CC15: Flood Risk Assessment or Policy UD3: Public Realm Design.

 

The Sections referred to in the submission within Section 8.2 Development Management are already addressed by the second paragraph of Section 8.2.1: Introduction. It states that the entire Development Management section should be read in conjunction with the Urban Design Section (Section 8.1) and other relevant individual topic Sections incorporated in this Development Plan (together with its Appendices and Supplementary Documents). This is considered sufficient to alert the attention of the reader for the need to cross-reference with other Sections of the Draft Plan.

 

Recommendation:

 

Amend the Draft Plan to include reference to the Green Infrastructure Strategy in the following Section:

 

Section 5.1.1.8 Policy EI8: Sustainable Drainage Systems*

It is Council policy to ensure that all development proposals incorporate Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS).

 

Development will only be permitted where the Council is satisfied that suitable measures have been considered that balance the impact of drainage through the achievement of control of run-off quantity and quality, and enhance amenity and habitat (for further details refer to Sections 8.2.8.3, 8.2.9.7, 8.2.9.11, 8.2.10.4 and Appendix 14 Green Infrastructure Strategy). In particular the requirements of the „SUDS Manual? by the UK?s Construction Industry Research and Information Association (CIRIA) shall be followed unless specifically exempted by the Council and/or Irish Water”.”

The following summary of submissions received was CONSIDERED:

 

xxvi) “Submission requests that „Innovation House? located in Zone 2 should have an upward modifier attached to the site to allow for additional height over the height limit identified on Map 3”.

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Chief Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“The Chief Executive agrees with the contents of this submission.

 

The Building Heights Strategy - Appendix 9 of the Draft County Development Plan - aims to reinforce the Countys image as a high quality residential urban area with mixed-use town centres by encouraging higher densities and, where appropriate, taller buildings around existing and emerging new urban nodes.

 

On a more micro-level, the Draft SUFP provides specific, detailed guidance in relation to the permitted/developed building height limits and proposed building height limits within the overall Sandyford Business District.

 

The building height limits set out on Map 3 of the Draft SUFP were established through an extensive assessment of both the location and character of the area and the existing or proposed land-uses. Scale of development is defined not just by height but by plot ratio and must have regard to the overall capacity of Sandyford to develop in a sustainable fashion. In this regard, as the Plan is prepared there will be a need to have regard to the overall carrying capacity of Sandyford to develop in a sustainable fashion.

 

The site in question has a proposed building height limit of 6 storeys and is alsohighlighted – under Objective BH4 – as a site which should facilitate a building of “notable design?. For clarity, the 2011 Draft SUFP contained an upward modifier on the site in question, which would have permitted a height limit of eight storeys. This upward modifier was removed - following debate - by the Elected Members during the adoption of the SUFP in September 2011.

 

It is acknowledged that a high density, mixed-used development with two blocks of predominantly seven, eight and nine storey elements with a central courtyard element of 24 storeys was granted planning permission by DLRCOCO (Reg. Ref. D04A/1417). However, this was subsequently refused on appeal by An Bord Pleanála. It should be stressed that the permission granted by DLRCOCO in 2005 was some six years prior to the adoption of the SUFP in 2011.

 

The Chief Executive concurs with the submission that an upward modifier should be attached to the site in question and would recommend the upward modifier limit being set at 8 storeys.

 

Recommendation:

 

Amend Section 3.2 Building Height Policies and Objectives, and specifically Objective BH3, to read as follows:

 

"It is an objective of the Council to consider additional height over the height limit as identified on Map 3 annotated by a star symbol, on Sites No. 4 and No. 6 (Drawing No.13). Increase in building height shall be limited to an element of the building at this location and only where it does not have a significant adverse impact on adjacent residential properties'''.

 

Amend Section 3.5 - Site 4: Corner of Blackthorn Road and Blackthorn Avenue, to read as follows:

“Shall provide a building of strong presence that would reinforce the corner and to allow an additional height over the height limit as identified on Map No.3”.

 

Amend Map 3 Building Height, as follows:

 

Insert black Star symbol (Additional heights over building height limit) within the yellow triangle symbol (Building to be of Notable Design) on the corner site of Blackthorn Road and Blackthorn Avenue.”

 

Following a discussion, Ms. M. Henchy, Director of Services and Mr. C. Clarke, Assistant Planner responded to Members’ queries.

767.

Page 512 - 514: Appendix 15 xxvii)

The following summary of submissions received was CONSIDERED:

 

xxvii) “Submission from Irish Water requests removal of Objective F2, which relates to the potential use of Stillorgan Reservoir – once covered over – as active public open space, on grounds that this would be incompatible with the provision of a safe, uncontaminated supply of water from this source.

 

Irish Water suggest the use of a “Public Infrastructure and Utilities” zoning objective being applied to the Reservoir site.

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Chief Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“The Chief Executive notes the contents of this submission.

 

Objective F2 of the Draft SUFP states:

 

“It is an objective of the Council to actively pursue the use of the existing reservoir site as active public open space when the use of part of this area as a reservoir is abandoned and the remaining part is covered over. This space will compensate for any future loss of the parklands at St. Benildus Sports Grounds associated with the construction of the Eastern Bypass”.

 

The Chief Executive does not concur with the submission that a site specific “Public Infrastructure and Utilities” zoning objective is required. The lands are zoned „F? “To preserve and provide for open space and ancillary recreational amenities” under which „Public Services? are „Open For Consideration?. The Chief Executive would highlight the definition of „Public Services? – below - which includes explicit reference to “other statutory undertakers” of which Irish Water are one.

 

“A building or part thereof or land used for the provision of „Public Services?. „Public Services? include all service installations necessarily required by electricity, gas, telephone, radio, television, drainage and other statutory undertakers; it includes public lavatories, public telephone boxes, bus shelters, bring centres, green waste composting facilities, etc.”

 

The site in question is considered an integral part of the future provision of public open space within the SUFP area and its potential designation as „Public Infrastructure and Utilities” is not supported by the Chief Executive.

 

The submission expresses concerns relating to the premature use of the site as active public open space, vis, :

 

“Any Council policy to utilise the site as active open space is premature pending the upgrading of the reservoir, which forms an integral part of the Vartry Supply Scheme, being realised, and also the completion of a review of the status of the site within the critical assets portfolio of Irish Water”.

The Chief Executive considers it appropriate to attach a caveat to the wording of Objective F2 to reflect the concerns raised and the conditions upon which the site could potentially be used as active public open space at some future date.

 

In addition, it is recognised – as stated within the submission - that the definition for „Public Services? should be amended to incorporate for the provision of water services. The Chief Executive recommends an amendment to the definition of „Public Services? to include the provision of water services.

 

Recommendation:

 

It is recommended that Objective F2 be amended, as follows:

 

Attach an asterisk demarcating the following caveat to Objective F2:

 

“The utilisation of the site as active open space is dependent on the upgrading of the reservoir, which forms an integral part of the Vartry Supply Scheme, being realised.”

 

Amend the definition of „Public Services? in Section 8.3.12: Definition of Use Classes, of the Draft Plan, to read as follows:

 

“A building or part thereof or land used for the provision of „Public Services?. „Public Services? include all service installations necessarily required by electricity, gas, telephone, radio, television, water, drainage and other statutory undertakers; it includes public lavatories, public telephone boxes, bus shelters, bring centres, green waste composting facilities, etc.””

The following summary of submission received was CONSIDERED:

 

iv) ”Submission requests rezoning of a parcel of land on the Dundrum Road from ‘A’ to ‘E’.”

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Chief Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“The Chief Executive agrees with the submission.

 

The site comprises a three storey office block with adjacent surface car park. The lands were in use for offices for approximately 30 years. Planning permission was granted on the site for change of use from Office to crèche (Ref D13A/0141) but this permission has not been implemented to date. The case is made that the present zoning of the site Objective ‘A’ – Residential, is inappropriate, effectively renders the development a ‘non-conforming use’ and hinders any future development/change of use options. There is already a range of commercial/retail/residential uses along Dundrum Road from Taney Cross to Bird Avenue and there is a variety of land use zoning designations – Neighbourhood Centre/Employment/Residential, which reflects this diversity. It is considered that there is a compelling case to ‘regularise’ the zoning designation of this particular site and that a rezoning of the site from Objective ‘A’ - (residential) to Objective ‘E’ - (employment) will more closely reflect both its historic and ongoing use. 

 

The Slang bounds the site to the west and the Dodder CFRAMS maps show some flood extents (0.1%,1% and 10% AEP) in adjoining lands to the north of the site. The site itself is not directly affected.

 

Recommendation:

 

Rezone subject site from Objective ‘A’ (residential) to Objective ‘E’ (employment).”

 

The above Recommendation on page 522 – 523  of the Chief Executive’s Report was AGREED unanimously.

Motion No. 101

It was proposed by Councillor D. Kingston and seconded by Councillor B. Ward.

 

“That this Planning Authority pursuant to Section 12 of the Planning and Development Act, 2000 (as amended) resolves to amend the Draft Development Plan as follows:

That the piece of land between the dart line and the sea, in front of Maretimo Gardens East (on Map 2) be zoned as Objective F “To preserve and provide for Open Space with ancillary active recreational activities.”

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Chief Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“The Chief Executive agrees with the Motion.

 

The lands referred to in the Motion are presently unzoned but function as an amenity space. The lands were previously zoned Objective ‘J’ Coastal Amenities until this zoning was removed in the 2010 County Development Plan on the basis that it covered the lands between the low and high water mark where the Planning Authority does not have jurisdiction. The site in question does not actually form part of this interstitial zone and it is acknowledged that an alternative zoning should have been applied at that stage.  It is considered that the appropriate zoning for the lands are Objective F “To preserve and provide for open space with ancillary active recreational activities”.

 

Recommendation:

 

It is recommended that subject to the approval of the Council, the following resolution be passed:

 

“That the Planning Authority pursuant to Section 12(6) of the Planning and Development Act 2000 resolves to amend the Draft Development Plan as follows:

 

Rezoned the lands to the north of Maretimo Gardens East on the accompanying map Objective ‘F’ - “To preserve and provide for open space with ancillary active recreational activities””.

 

Following a discussion, Mr. C. Fulcher, Executive Planner responded to Members’ queries.

 

The Chief Executive’s Report was ACCEPTED.

The following summary of submission received was CONSIDERED:

 

v)   “Submission states that there may be mapping errors with respect to Langdale, Silchester Road. The submission requests that:

·         the ‘F’ zoning is removed from within the site.

·         The site boundaries are correctly shown

·         The ACA boundary is examined with a view of amending it

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Chief Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“In relation to the ACA designation, the Chief Executive does not agree with the submission.

 

The boundary for the Silchester Road ACA was agreed by way of Variation 6.2 November 2011 to the County Development Plan 2010-2016. The site referred to in the submission extends the full plot width of Corrymella to include the entrance gate and piers this is in line with Chapter 3 of the Department of the Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Architectural Heritage Protection Guidelines 2004.  Due process was followed in the adoption of Silchester Road ACA as set out in Section 13 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended).

 

In relation to the Objective ‘F’ zone, the Chief Executive agrees with the submission. There is a small sliver of land which forms part of the garden of Langdale, Silchester Road, which has, in error, been given the same zoning designation (Objective ‘F’ – Open Space) as the adjoining communal open space associated with the Traverslea development. This triangular sliver is actually part of a private garden and should be zoned Objective ‘A’ – Residential in tandem with the rest of the property.

 

Recommendation:

 

Rezone the area of land identified on the associated map from Objective ‘F’ (Open Space) to Objective ‘A’ (Residential).”

 

The above recommendation on page 526 of the Chief Executive’s Report was AGREED unanimously.

The following summary of submission received was CONSIDERED:

 

i) ”Submission requests that an area of land at Lambs Cross, presently zoned ‘F’ be re-zoned to ‘NC’.”

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Chief Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“The Chief Executive notes the contents of this submission.

 

The submission refers to a very small parcel of land, currently zoned Objective ‘F’ (Open Space) adjoining the very north-west corner of the Objective ‘NC’ area. The submitter has provided evidence of ownership of the parcel in question. The site is in private ownership and fenced off. The small site, while adjacent to an area of public open space does not form part of that public open space.

 

The lands at the north-western corner of Lambs Cross were rezoned from Objective ‘F’ (Open Space) to Objective ‘NC’ (Neighbourhood Centre) as part of the 2010 County Development Plan. The rezoning was carried out to reinforce the commercial/retail function of the Lambs Cross area in light of future residential development which will occur in the area. The rezoning of the parcel of land in question followed what was thought to be the Ordnance Survey land parcel boundary.

 

Recommendation:

 

Rezone small area of land zoned Objective ‘F’ (Open Space) adjoining Objective ‘NC’ zoned lands at the north-west quadrant of Lambs Cross to Objective ‘NC’ (Neighbourhood Centre).”

 

The above recommendation on page 527 of the Chief Executive’s Report was AGREED unanimously.

Motion No. 108 REZONING pdf icon PDF 55 KB

Additional documents:

It was proposed by Councillor J. Madigan and seconded by Councillor  M. Bailey.

 

“That this Planning Authority pursuant to Section 12 of the Planning and Development Act, 2000 (as amended) resolves to amend the Draft Development Plan as follows:

 

RE:  SUBMISSION NO. B0651

 

CHIEF EXECUTIVE’S REPORT: MAP 6/ITEM (iii)

 

0.04 ha./0.1 ac. site adjoining 28-32 Dale Rd., Kilmacud, Co. Dublin.

 

a)  Correction of error in Chief Executive’s report:

 

The Chief Executive’s report erroneously suggests that the site is subject to a claim of adverse possession. The site is subject to no such claim. This is evidenced by the Pending Applications Report of Landdirect.ie, being the online service provided by the Land Registry, a copy of which is enclosed dated 23rd September 2015 for your reference. Mr Gavin Kenny, the applicant of submission number B0651 confirms that he has not lodged any such application with the Land Registry in relation to said site.

 

The site is owned by the submitter, Mr. Gavin Kenny. It is proposed that the record in the Chief Executive’s report should be amended accordingly.

 

b)    Proposed re-zoning:

 

Rezone from: “F - to preserve and provide for open space with ancillary active recreational amenities”

 

To: “A – to protect and/or improve residential amenity”.

 

Reasons for proposed re-zoning:

 

  • The site is small and in private ownership (owned by submitter Mr. G. Kenny).
  • The site is fenced and unused. This is clear from the attached images and maps evidencing the site being in private ownership enclosed by fencing and being separate to the said open space.
  • It is not in open space use and does not contribute to recreational amenity.
  • There is ample public open space adjoining the site and in the vicinity to serve the local residential area.
  • The site was zoned residential in 1983 Co. Development Plan.
  • The owner intends to use the site for a residence for his own occupation. A residence on site will be compatible with local residential amenity and will provide passive surveillance for the adjoining, large public open space.”

 

Following a discussion, Mr. C. Fulcher, Executive Planner responded to Members’ queries.

 

The motion was PUT. A roll call vote was then called for which resulted as follows:

Pages 531 - 532 Map 7 i)

The following summary of submission received was CONSIDERED:

 

i) ”Submission requests that lands at Killiney Tea Rooms, with a position on the beach edge, be zoned ‘W’ similar to the Dún Laoghaire Baths site”.

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Chief Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“The Chief Executive notes the contents of this submission.

 

Planning permission was granted by An Bord Pleanála under Reg. Ref. D09A/0034 for a mixed-use development including the renovation of two no. residential units, café, shops, toilets and five no. artists chalets/studios, at White Cottage, Killiney Strand.

 

The lifetime of this planning permission was extended under Reg. Ref. D09A/0034/E with condition no. 2 explicitly stating that:

 

“The extension of duration is for five years. The works shall therefore be completed no later than 25/04/2020”.

 

The site was inspected in July 2015 and no works had commenced to-date. There is an extant planning permission on site which would allow the site to be appropriately and sensitively redeveloped in accordance with the planning permission granted. However, in order to allow some future minor amendments to the permitted development, if sought, it is considered appropriate to rezone the site to ‘W’ - “To provide for waterfront development and harbour related uses”.

 

SLO No. 132 also offers support to the redevelopment of the former Killiney Beach Tea Rooms and states:

 

“To encourage the redevelopment and refurbishment of the former Killiney Beach Tea Rooms”.

 

Finally, given the limited extent and sensitive location of the site, it is considered entirely appropriate to confine the size and scale of any redevelopment to that similar to the mix of proposed uses permitted under Reg. Ref. D09A/0034/E.

 

Recommendation:

 

Rezone the site at the former Killiney Tea Rooms to ‘W’ - “To provide for waterfront development and harbour related uses”.

 

Amend the wording of SLO NO. 132 as follows,

 

“To encourage the redevelopment and refurbishment of the former Killiney Beach Tea Rooms within the size and scale of the permitted development, and generally confined to the uses permitted under Reg. Ref. D09A/0034/E. In particular no more than two residential units to be provided on the site.”

 

Amend Land Use Zoning Objective ‘W’, Table 8.3.19, by adding Note 3 which states:

“Any redevelopment of the former Killiney Beach Tea Rooms shall be within the size and scale of the permitted development, and generally confined to the uses permitted under Reg. Ref. D09A/0034/E.In particular no more than two residential units to be provided on the site””.

The following summary of submission received was CONSIDERED:

 

vii) ”Submission request rezoning of land at Rockhill,  Church Road Killiney from Objective ‘F’ - Open Space to Objective ‘A’ – Residential”.

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Chief Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“The Chief Executive agrees with the submission.

 

The lands in question form part of a linear strip of Objective ‘F’ (Open Space) land which leads from the Killiney Heath estate through to Killiney Golf Course. The open space follows the line of a watercourse/ditch, culverted in places.

 

The lands have been zoned Objective ‘F’ (Open Space) as far  back as the 1984 Dún Laoghaire Borough Plan. The lands are in private ownership (as part of the ‘Rockhill’ landholding) and are fenced off from public access. The lands do not formed part of the public/communal open space at Killiney Heath and were originally laid out as one of the individual housing plots which formed part of Killiney Heath. It is not clear why an Objective ‘F’ (Open Space) zoning was applied to the lands originally.

 

It is considered that a compelling case has been made for rezoning the lands to Objective ‘A’ (Residential) in keeping with the remainder of the overall residential landholding of ‘Rockhill’.

 

Recommendation:

 

Rezone area of land zoned Objective ‘F’ (Open Space) at Killiney Heath, Church Road Killiney to Objective ‘A’ (Residential)”.

 

The above recommendation on page 534 of the Chief Executive’s Report was AGREED unanimously.

That land parcel 29b (Glenamuck Cottages/Rockville Drive) or part of, be landscaped for use and enjoyment of residents while waiting for the part 8 process to begin.”

The following summary of submission received was CONSIDERED:

 

vi)”Submission requests that triangular section of ‘F’ zoned lands within the southeast part of the Clay Farm Lands (Phase 2) is rezoned to zoning objective ‘A’ in accordance with the Stepaside Area Action Plan 2000”.

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Chief Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“The Chief Executive agrees with the submission.

 

The parcel of land identified in the submission was rezoned for residential development in the 1998 County Development Plan, as part of the wider rezoning of Stepaside and identified in the subsequent Stepaside Action Area Plan (2000) as part of Development Parcel 18. The Objective ‘F’ (Open Space) lands to the south comprise the Stepaside Golf Course and the former Ballyogan landfill. It appears that, during the drafting of the 2004 County Development Plan, a portion of the Clay Farm residential zoned lands were incorrectly included as part of the Golf Course and consequently zoned Objective ‘F’ (Open Space) – even though the lands clearly form no functional part of the Golf Course and are an integral part of the Clay Farm lands. The triangular parcel was identified as part of the overall Masterplan for the Clay Farm site in the parent planning application D06A/0531.  It is recommended that, to regularise a previous Development Plan mapping error,  the lands be rezoned to the original zoning under the 1998 County Development Plan - Objective ‘A’ (Residential).

 

Recommendation:

 

Rezone lands in attached map from Objective ‘F’ (Open Space) to Objective ‘A’ (Residential).”

The following summary of submission received was CONSIDERED:

 

iii) ”Submission requests that lands at Loughlinstown Industrial Estate be rezoned from Objective ‘A’ Residential to Objective ‘NC’ Neighbourhood Centre.”

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Chief Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“The proposal is to rezone the subject site, comprising the industrial buildings and car park at Loughlinstown Industrial Estate and also the adjoining HSE site (see submission above) to Objective ‘NC’ (Neighbourhood Centre). The submission states that the HSE support the proposals which will include a redevelopment of the Primary Health Care Centre.

 

The Chief Executive agrees that the present zoning of the Loughlinstown Industrial Estate site Objective ‘A’ (Residential) is clearly not compatible with the long established use – light industry and warehousing. The Chief Executive is of the view, however, that an employment zoning is more appropriate than an Objective ‘NC’ (Neighbourhood Centre). It is considered appropriate to retain an employment dimension to the lands in question. An Objective ‘NC’ (Neighbourhood Centre) zoning of the scale sought – including the adjacent HSE lands and the existing neighbourhood centre – would be quite extensive and could facilitate the development of a retail centre of a similar scale to the Objective ‘NC’ lands at nearby Ballybrack Shopping Centre at Church View Road, Ballybrack.

 

The Chief Executive is not convinced that additional Objective ‘NC’ (Neighbourhood Centre) lands are required or justified at Loughlinstown but recommends that the underlying zoning of the site in question be amended to reflect the longstanding employment use of the lands.

 

Recommendation:

 

Rezone lands in attached map from Objective ‘A’ (Residential) to Objective ‘E’ (Employment).”

 

The above recommendations on pages 541 – 542 of the Chief Executive’s Report were AGREED unanimously.

4(b) Miscellaneous Mapping Changes

816.

Page 549 4 (b) Map 2 i)

The following summary of submission received was CONSIDERED:

 

i)     “Submission requests the removal of the Goatstown Interchange section of the Eastern By-Pass at Knockrabo as current NRA policy confirms that it no longer forms part of the motorway corridor.”

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Chief Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“The Chief Executive disagrees with the contents of this submission.

 

The County Development Plan is statutorily obliged to be consistent with both the Regional Planning Guidelines and the National Transport Authority Draft Transport Strategy.  In this regard, the Dublin Eastern Bypass is currently included within both documents and the Council is, therefore, statute bound to adhere to include the Dublin Eastern Bypass within the County Development Plan.

 

The Dublin Eastern Bypass is a Long-Term Roads Objective within the Draft Plan.  In their submission (B0256), the National Roads Authority request that the requirements of the Corridor Protection Study 2011 and, in particular, that the corridor alignment in the study be observed. 

 

The County Development Plan Mapping - Maps 1,2,5 and 6 and T3 (Supplementary Mapping Booklet)- requires amending, to ensure consistency with the alignment of the Dublin Eastern Bypass as detailed within the NRAs 2011 ‘ Corridor Protection Study’.

 

Recommendation:

 

The provisional alignment of the Dublin Eastern Bypass be amended on County Development Plan Maps 1, 2, 5 and 6 and T3 (Supplementary Mapping Booklet) to reflect the National Roads Authority ‘Corridor Protection Study 2011’.

 

All references to SLO No. 72 be removed from the County Development Plan Written Statement and Mapping.”

 

The above recommendation on page 549 of the Chief Executive’s Report was AGREED unanimously.

 

 

817.

Page 549 Map 3 i)

The following summary of submission received was CONSIDERED:

 

i)     “Submission states that there may be mapping errors with respect to Langdale, Silchester Road. The submission requests that:

 

·         the ‘F’ zoning is removed from within the site.

·         The site boundaries are correctly shown

The ACA boundary is examined with a view of amending it”.

 

The following Response and Recommendation of the Chief Executive was CONSIDERED:

 

“In relation to the ACA designation, the Chief Executive does not agree with the submission.

 

The boundary for the Silchester Road ACA was agreed by way of Variation 6.2 (November 2011) to the County Development Plan 2010-2016. The site referred to in the submission extends the full plot width of Corrymella to include the entrance gate and piers this is in line with Chapter 3 of the Department of the Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Architectural Heritage Protection Guidelines 2004.  Due process was followed in the adoption of Silchester Road ACA as set out in Section 13 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended).

 

In relation to the Objective ‘F’ zone, the Chief Executive agrees with the submission. There is a small sliver of land which forms part of the garden of Langdale, Silchester Road, which has, in error, been given the same zoning designation (Objective ‘F’ – Open Space) as the adjoining communal open space associated with the Traverslea development. This triangular sliver is actually part of a private garden and should be zoned Objective ‘A’ – Residential, in tandem with the rest of the property.

 

Recommendation:

 

Rezone the area of land identified on the associated map from Objective ‘F’ (Open Space) to Objective ‘A’ (Residential)”.

 

The above Recommendations on pages 549 - 550 of the Chief Executive’s Report were AGREED unanimously.
