Clondalkin - Local Anger with Bord Pleanála over Controversial Apartment Decision

Clondalkin - Local Anger with Bord Pleanála over Controversial Apartment Decision
Clondalkin : Apartment decision met with anger by locals
A decision by An Bord Pleanála to grant permission to San Guida Properties Ltd (Directors Alan Brunton , Frank Keogh , Eddie Kent) for Demolition of the two storey house known as 'San Guida'  and the construction of a four storey apartment block close to the historic village centre of clondalkin , has been met with anger from local residents . 

The development (SD20A/0015) was given the go ahead by South Dublin County Council in March but subsequently appealed to An Bord Pleanála in June by local residents . 

The proposed development had received strong local opposition including twenty-seven individual objections ,  objections from the Clondalkin History Society and the Sruleen Community Development society . 

The Clondalkin History Society in its objection had argued that while government policy is to increase densities and building heights , due regard must be had for the protection of established character and the proposal is not in keeping with the character of a historic village like Clondalkin . The society also argued it would set a precedent for similar developments in the area transforming the character of clondalkin village while noting an excessive increase in density from 4.3 units per hectare to over 89 units per hectare.  

In her report , Caryn Coogan , Planning Inspector for An Bord Pleanála , justified the increase in building height with reference to a decision by the Board in November to grant permission for a 155 bed , four storey nursing home on the grounds of Clondalkin Convent to the south . That proposal had resulted in widespread public protests by the Save our Convent Campaign in Clondalkin .
  
Speaking to the thetricolour.com , a local resident who wished to remain anonymous said that locals have become disillusioned with the planning system . 
 
people in the area have lost faith in the planning system , I have spoken with many people who now say whats the point in voicing your concerns , nobody listens to them , neither the planning authority or An Board Pleanála , In many cases just one or two Planning Officers at local authority level can now decide on major developments impacting on peoples areas while at An Bord Pleanala , a quorum of Just three Board members can now decide major projects impacting peoples lives and these Board members dont even have to have experience in planning matters which is bizarre , some may have never read a building plan which is scary . These civil servants have too much power in their hands . Something needs to change . The planning system in Ireland is rotten to the core and needs restructuring  .

in the planning system there is too much power in the hands of a few , I've been saying this all along .

But also , I think people have also lost faith because of inconsistency in the decision making process . one month they tell you one thing while the next it could be a very different decision .

I also worry about pre planning meetings , I dont think pre planning meetings should be allowed to take place because planners and developers can get over friendly and the process may become impartial
^
fully agree derek also the planning system is set up to favour the super rich , if you have money you can get away with anything . the ordinary joe are just spit on someones boot .

^
that design has no imagination , its just a square blob .

i know clondalkin village well and this type of development will ruin it . they're importing all this from the continent

some will say .. oh we need houses , yes but THEY MUST BE PLANNED PROPERLY , I mean if your neighbour told you he was knocking down his house to build a 10 storey apartment block would you be ok with it , after all , the same logic applies , we need houses ??

we need proper planning taking into account the built heritage and historic value of places , this is not it

power , greed , corruption , either get used to it folks or fight back

The Fáinne ring was an excellent idea and still is although not used so much now, it would be great to get it going again to kickstart a revival in our gaelic tongue .

de valera is spot on . Connolly was a very proud irishman and member of the gaelic league . He disagreed with many socialists on many issues . for example , he was totally opposed to bringing sexual matters into the realm of socialism . in his writings he frequently refers to "the irish race" which displays his fondness for nationhood and country . the new left wing teach people to hate country and nationhood . Connolly was not like that . Read his writings and you'll see .

i wouldn't like to see sport go down the st pauli / bohs fc road where they've become political in nature . whether your on the left or right , thats for your own personal time , sport is for everyone ,to bring everyone together regardless of political views . This is why political organisations whoever they are should not be allowed to get a foothold on it .

would like the leitrim hurlers to come to dublin and see irish homeless waiting a decade for a home while those claiming asylum will wait just 4 months under a new system introduced by Minister Roderic O'Gorman . Whether thats racist or not only Roderic O'Gorman can answer but it certainly is discrimination against irish homeless someone only has to arrive at dublin airport and make an asylum application, their application doesn't even have to be approved and they will stil

MRCI is a political lobby group . racism is one of their campaigns . leitrim are therefore facilitating a political campaign by contracting with the organisation and promoting its campaign on their jersey

if your a leitrim fan , ask yourself this , when was the last time you saw a racist incident anywhere in leitrim . I live in a populated area in dublin with many different nationalities and I've NEVER ever seen one racist incident in all my time . Its a Non issue . These organisations are just using it as a way to control public discourse (and get funding) and make people afraid to question anything to with migration on the basis that they'll be considered racist
