Re: E-mail from Water St Architects
”the project was withdrawn in order to submit a new scheme in the near future.
We have been in a period of intense negotiation with the Planning Authority since it was lodged in May last. There were a number of aspects of the scheme that were particular sticking points that the Planning Authority felt that could not be dealt with by means of conditions or additional information, so therefore , we opted to withdraw the scheme and return with a new one rather than accept a refusal. The basic concept, design, scale of the development will be more or less the same, however, it is hoped that CCC will be in a better position to support the new scheme as we believe in going forward to An Bord Pleanala(which with a scheme of such a scale is almost inevitable)with a positive response from the local Authority.”

🙂 Developers Barry Collins and Clayton Love’s company Piton Properties have announced their detailled plans for a 100m euro Carrigaline Town Centre project. The project will include a large multiplex, town square, shopping district, showrooms, public amenity area, bowling complex, offices, entertainment centre, 900 covered car parking spaces and riverside walk. The development will be constructed on the site of the former Carrigaline Pottery complex and a parcel of 26-acres adjoining. I’ll have images up soon.
