The High Court has turned down the recommended growth of 486 apartment or condos as part of a Strategic Housing Growth in the higher Rathfarnham location, creates Rachel Cunningham.

An Bord Pleanála had previously authorized preparation consent for the project last September, which would certainly have entailed the demolition of an obsolete religious house and also building ashore located at Taylor’s Lane and Edmondstown Road in Ballyboden, by the programmer Shannon House Building and construction ULC.

Judgment in favour of an application by Ballyboden Tidy Towns Group, Mr Justice David Holland subdued the authorization because of An Bord Pleanála’s apparent failure to take public transport capability for the location appropriately into account.

Other premises for the quashing were that the recommended household density of 142 dwellings per hectare remained in breach of the objectives as well as purposes of a development plan for the area which the proposal stopped working to properly take into consideration height standards. There was an even more alleged failing to show sufficient respect, under the EU Regulation on Habitats, for the protection of neighborhood wild animals, namely bats as well as otters.

The lands had formerly been inhabited by a Catholic seminary and chapel by the Augustinian Order, in addition to a pitch and putt program.
