New blow for developer as hotel plan rejected
MULTI-millionaire property developer Jim Mansfield has been dealt a third blow to his dreams of developing west county Dublin.
Already in trouble for the unauthorised development of hangars at Weston Aerodrome in Lucan, now Mr Mansfield’s hotel and conference centre scheme at the small airport has been refused planning permission by An Bord Pleanala.
Last year HSS Ltd, which is a company owned by Mr Mansfield, was fined for beginning work without planning permission on a giant conference centre at City West.
The latest blow for him comes as An Bord Pleanala upheld a decision by South Dublin County Council to refuse planning permission for a 95-bedroom hotel and a 400-seater conference centre and leisure facility in the grounds of Weston Airport.
Last February the council refused permission for the construction of a hotel and conference and leisure centre there.
Mr Mansfield, through HSS/Sean Lucy and Associates Ltd of Mount St Gardens, Mullingar, appealed the refusal from the council, but yesterday the board upheld the decision of the council.
An Bord Pleanala said it was considered that the proposed development would detract from the character and setting of the protected structure of Weston Park House.
so construction should be starting fairly soon then…… 😀
