144 New apartments on Turvey

Post by aoifey » 04 Mar 2020, 09:33

new planning application gone up, straight to an bord pleanala.

details here turveyavenueshd.ie

i suggest everyone has a read and make their own mind up. also ask yourself why it is being called 'strategic'

first thing that stood out for me was in the 'community and social infrastructure audit report' that they provide along with the application. amongst many other things it states the following:

"It is important to mention that significant investment in services over the
period 2010-2019 is such that there is now significant infrastructure in
place to accommodate the anticipated and planning increase in residential
dwellings and population growth in Donabate. Such investments included:"


and it goes on to further say
Essentially, Donabate now has all the required services to facilitate the
increase in residential dwellings and indeed can serve the residential
apartments proposed as part of the current application.


these planning companies would be great at writing fiction.
so we have sufficient infrastructure?
trains are already at capacity with no plans in the short to medium term to increase.
water is going off every two weeks or so.
we have one supermarket. a couple of bookies. and a couple of small shops.
and infrastructure is in place and ok? seriously?

and this from a planning company that is run by locals.

anyway judge this for yourself and make your own conclusions.
i know at least one person who won't be objecting with any great/real conviction to this

I think it we all know who won't be objecting. Planning is out of control in Donabate. Nobody in FCC cares what happens here and our local "reps" don't seem to care either.

Agreed sci-fi is correct. Infrastructure is not in place you support substantial new development in Donabate.

This is a very positive development for Donabate. Great to see local planners, Downey Planning, coming up with the right scheme for the right location. The reduced parking to encourage the future residents of the apartments to use public transport is also very welcome and shows good forward planning. I hope the people of Donabate get behind this scheme. We have had enough bad planning out here. It's time we showed our support when a good scheme is designed.
