A formal planning application has been lodged by Bartra ODG Ltd to An Bord Pleanála requesting planning permission to redevelop O’Devaney Gardens in line with the decision taken by Dublin City Council in December 2019.
Across the coming days, I will be circulating to every home across Stoneybatter, Drumalee, Montpelier, Arbour Hill, Infirmary Road and down to the Liffey with a detailed outline of the planning application, the number of homes to be delivered, how the development is being proposed for completion, the planning process that will determine the success or otherwise of the application, the local consultation planned and how you can get involved and have your say about the proposed building of more than 1,000 new homes on the former O’Devaney Gardens site.
The information available to me at present includes but is not limited to the following:
- The construction of 9 development blocks comprising of 1,047 homes
- A mix of one, two- and three-bedroom apartments, three-bedroom duplexes and three-bedroom houses.
- The development blocks will range in height, with a maximum of 14 storeys.
- MUGA facilities / communal garden and performance space.
- Community facility.
- Creche facility.
- 2,000 bicycle parking spaces.
- 276 car parking spaces.
- 11 motor-cycle parking spaces.
As required by An Bord Pleanála, the applicant has prepared a dedicated website which contains all the documentation submitted as part of the application for the public to access. You can find this information at http://www.odg-shd.com.
Over the next five weeks there is likely to be many meetings about this application, many opportunities for local householders and residents to engage and learn more about the specifics of the proposals put forward and how you can have your say. I will endeavour to keep you updated of these events and how you can access them.
If you have any specific questions or queries arising from the details outlined above of available on the dedicated redevelopment website (www.odg-shd.com), please contact me at RayMcAdam@gmail.com.
