The Part 8 process commenced on July 18th last. A four week period of public consultation and display of the redevelopment plans took place in Civic Offices on Wood Quay and in the Central Area Office on Sean McDermott Street. Additional local information sessions took place in Ballybough Community Centre and in the Charleville Mall Library. The final day where local residents and interested parties could lodge a submission or observation on the planning application was August 30th 2017.
Council officials will now prepare a report on the submissions received and present that to Councillors in advance of the October City Council meeting where this Part 8 planning application will be debated. That report will list the details of those who lodged submissions, a summary of the issues raised and a response from the Council Executive to those issues and recommendations as to how those issues can be addressed or resolved. Finally, the report will include a recommendation as to whether the planning application should be granted permission on the basis outlined in the application or if variations or modifications should be made.
When that Council report is published and shared with Councillors, I will liaise with local residents and community groups to get their views on the application in advance of the October City Council meeting. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or queries arising from the details outlined above.
