Hendrons Planning Application - Decision Due by 21 April

A planning application was lodged in August 2008 for a 14-storey apartment/hotel and retail development at the Hendron’s site in Broadstone. There was significant local opposition to this proposal and Dublin City Council received over 50 objections to the proposal. Both Joe Costello and I strongly supported residents’ objections to this development

The proposal was put out to further information on 18th September 2008. The further information was received on 25th March.
The further information does nothing to allay residents concerns regarding this devleopment. See above photomontage view from CIE Broadstone.

The additional information including a scale model is available to be inspected at the Planning Counter in Dublin City Council offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8 (9am 5 pm) and is also available to view on the Planning Section Dublin City Council website (ref 3938/08). Dublin City Council inform us that they are not requesting the applicant to re-advertise the additional information but that existing objectors may submit comments.

Dublin City Council has until 21st April to make a decision on the application. We will keep you informed of developments. We will continue to support the residents in their opposition to this development.
