As you know Hines in conjunction with the GAA is developing the former Clonliffe College site along Clonliffe Road.
This follows on from the GAA purchasing the site in 2018 and its development agreement being reached with Hines. An initial planning application for a hotel development fronting onto Clonliffe Road was submitted last year to Dublin City Council. Further details about this application can be accessed here – https://bit.ly/3uwzK2Z. Planning permission for a 200 bedroom hotel has since been granted.
In terms of the remainder of the site, Hines indicated that it would seek planning permission through the Strategic Housing Development process with An Bord Pleanala for rental housing complex, including:
- Private Rental
- Affordable Rental
- Public Rental through Dublin City Council
I understand that it is likely a formal planning application will be submitted by the end of April. In advance of such an application being lodged with An Bord Pleanala, Hines has organised a community information session and a briefing for local City Councillors. Both meetings are planned for tomorrow. Councillors will meet at 1pm and the Community Engagement event will kick off at 6pm via Zoom.
You can join the meeting on Zoom and enter the following Meeting ID number: 968 5343 6968.
If you are unable to attend the community information meeting tomorrow evening, I will be posting details of the plans for the redevelopment of the Clonliffe College site here. If you would like further information, get in touch with me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
