Stockwell Planning Update

An Bord Pleanála have advised of an order by their board to refuse planning permission for Stockwell on Sandyford Road.

An Bord Pleanála’s reasons and considerations this time mention having regard for the form, scale and layout of the development, the location next to lower scale detached dwellings, the loss of privacy for existing residents. and the fact that the proposed layout was planning for expansive parking and access roadways, with limited substandard qualitative functional open space . Their view was that this would give rise to a poor standard of development and would be contrary to the proper planning and sustainable development of the area.
