🙁 Mary Collins’ has seen her proposal of a 9-storey, 39-unit apartment building for the Roxboro Quarry on the Boreenmanna Road refused planning. Among the reasons cited by planners were ill traffic management, over development and lack of amenity spaces (other than a roof-garden). The jury is still out on my opinion of the report – although I’m disappointed to see the project refused, I still believe the developer should have more carefully addressed particular issues. I would advise her not to seek permission via ABP and perhaps revise spatial and access elements to the project, then simply reapply to CCC. I would be very confident ABP would refuse any 1st party appeal on similar grounds.
:confused: Although a decision is due today – CCC have not yet got back with a firm decision on Frinailla’s Watercourse Road (Ladyswell) project. An individual at McCutcheon Mulcahy said she can’t say anything as of yet, but will let me know when possible. So, you’ll hear it around the same time too. Taking a guess, I’d probably say ‘Conditional’, but who knows?! I could be wrong.
