Planning Permission for additional 3 houses in Orchard View

Planning Permission for additional 3 houses in Orchard View

Postby mathildajane » 04 Oct 2017, 20:42

On 5th September, planning permission lodged with Fingal Co Council (F17A/0535), at lands at the rear of The Beaver, Beaverstown Road, Donabate for 3 additional houses. The houses, 2 semi d's and 1 detached will bring this new estate, if planning permission granted, to a total of 18 houses.

The building of these additional houses will impact further on the ditch, drainage, hedgerows, wildlife, traffic and more than likely will affect water outages on the Beaverstown Road (this year alone, Irish Water repair crews repaired leaks on the road directly outside The Beaver.)

Can I just ask where the application for this development is. I live in Hazelwood and pass this site by daily and haven't seen any application notice on the proposed site.

The planning application is on a pole outside the main building site for Orchard View, not the actual site - The garden of the 'The Beaver'. It is a yellow coloured planning application. Looking at Fingal County Council's advice on planning, it states

....The site notice is placed on site for 5 weeks from the date of receipt of the planning application. You must replace it if it gets damaged or removed as your application could be invalidated. It should be placed where the site meets the public road and be clearly visible to the public....

One major concern I'd have about this development is that there is only provision for two car parking spaces for each house and with no overflow parking anywhere. This means when people have friends around a workman or woman needs to park their van they inevitably use Beaverstown road and block a lot of people.

dont all developments only have provision for 1 to 2 car parking spaces max? Van parkers are usually workers that are around during the daytime when most cars have gone to work!

if it comes to people parking on Beaverstown road then there will have to be requests put in for double yellow lines (they should be there now anyway)

A woman can park her van anywhere she damn well pleases.

I can't understand how they can get away with putting the application for planning permission is not on the site itself. Surely this contravenes planning guidelines. It's ironic that the Orchard View development has hoarding advertising an estate surrounded by trees while, in fact, they've removed the trees from the boundary of the site.

Just noticed when walking home from train station this evening that there is now a planning permission sign outside the garden of the property called 'The Beaver' close to the edge of the building site for Orchard View. So now there are two application notices, one on the pole outside the building site and one outside 'The Beaver'!

Is it not a bit late to move the planning permission notice now? That should have been there as soon as permission was sought.

The point here is that there is zero on-street parking. The only parking is in the drive and where the front garden should be. This is a high density solution, not suitable for 3 or 4 bedroom semi-detached or detached houses. It will be a nightmare for the new occupiers, and is bound to have spill over.

Beresford is half way thru 400 houses and has no plans for over flow parking anywhere. 2 Acres of green spaces stipulated by the LAP wiped out so the developer could build more houses and no walk ways meaning more people needing to use their car.

It is a similar pattern unfortunately and sadly when you are a first time buyer the emotions of buying your own home in a market where there is panic means you'll hand over your money and developers get away with things they shouldn't. It's terrible really.
