Planning Application - Details

It is considered that the amount of site area, which is reserved for residential use is excessive and together with the design and layout of the development and the inadequate provision for marine related uses, seriously compromises the achievement of a quality mixed use and integrated development with adequate and appropriate provision for marine and harbour related activities. It is therefore considered that the development as proposed would seriously compromise the harbour’s ability to attract and maintain good marine related uses and would limit the scale and diversity of such uses, which the harbour area could support. The Planning Authority therefore considers that the development as proposed would be contrary to the zoning objective for this location of providing for waterfront development and marine related uses and would also be contrary to the requirements of Specific Local Objective 22 as set out in the 2016 – 2022 Dun Laoghaire -Rathdown County Development Plan. The proposed development would therefore be contrary to the proper planning and sustainable development of this area. 2. Having regard to the uniformity of the building design for the proposed quayside block, and the resulting visual scale of the building along its quayside elevation, it is considered that this prominent quayside element is lacking in the quality and distinctiveness of design required for this location and would result in an incongruous and abrupt visual form within the harbour area and would also be seriously injurious to the amenities of adjacent property within the harbour. The proposed development would therefore be seriously injurious to the amenities and visual character of this area and would be contrary to the requirements of Specific Local Objective 22, as set out in the 2016 – 2022 Dun Laoghaire -Rathdown County Development Plan. The proposed development would therefore be contrary to the proper planning and sustainable development of this area. 3. It is considered that the design and layout as proposed significantly isolates the proposed development from the harbour and adjacent coastal area. In particular, the development fails to integrate appropriately with the harbour area and also fails to take advantage of opportunities to address the adjacent coastline through appropriate surveillance from within the subject site. The proposed development would therefore be contrary to Policy LHB9 of the 2016 – 2022 Dun Laoghaire -Rathdown County Development Plan and would be seriously injurious to harbour amenities and public amenities at this location. The proposed development would therefore be contrary to the proper planning and sustainable development of this area.
