Raheny plans for 657 homes win the support of An Bord Pleanála
18th February 2020 – Marlet’s ambitious plans for 657 homes beside St Anne’s Park in Raheny were approved by An Bord Pleanála. The plans for the development include its own park of 1.6 hectares (25% of the area), a creche, and numerous premium amenities including a gym, cinema, and light-filled, features-rich lounge area for residents and their visitors to enjoy.
Marlet welcomes the decision as a major endorsement for its development ethos, particularly considering that at a time of severe housing shortage in Dublin it opens the way for the provision of 657 badly needed homes, close to the city, served by excellent public transport links.
Situated on the former playing fields of St Paul’s College and adjacent to St Anne’s Park, the plans take into full consideration the concerns of all the groups who have provided valuable insights into the area and go to great lengths to address them, including any potential impact on bird species, most notably Brent geese.
Spaciousness and greenery, supported by extensive planting and optimised orientation, are defining characteristics of Foxlands with a view to maximising the volume and quality of light enjoyed by residents.
The Bord was satisfied that the proposed development would not adversely affect the integrity of the surrounding conservation areas, and also said the scheme would not seriously injure the residential or visual amenities of the area or of property in the vicinity and would respect the existing character of the area”.
