🙂 Cumnor Construction have seen the appeal lodged against their 22-unit apartment development for Sunday’s Well, designed by Jack Coughlan Associates, withdrawn. A private deal was struck, of which the details are as yet unclear, between the developers and resident Brian O’Sullivan (I believe it was concerning property claims – though I’m open for correction). Cumnor made notable rearrangements to their development at CCC level in order to appease concerns, nonetheless, an appeal was brought against them in early March. Its good to see that a compromise has been worked out. Construction is set for early Summer.
🙂 John Cleary Developments have submitted a newly revised plan for their lands adjoining Kilnap’s North Point Business Park near Blackpool. Earlier this year JCD where refused planning by CCC for 17 light industrial units which, if had been granted, were earmarked to create 300 new jobs in the North Cork Area. JCD have gone back to the drawing board with engineers Niall Fitzsimons Ltd rather than appeal (a sensible move in my opinion) and now have presented CCC with a revised application – still incorporating 17 light industrial units, only this time, they comprise part of a new building measuring some 47,000sq ft +. The revisions should hopefully allay concerns raised by CCC, which ultimately led to the project’s refusal, related to negative skyline disruption, poor access, traffic management etc. The new plan still aims to create a similar, if not, equal number of new jobs for Blackpool and the surrounding areas of North Cork.
🙂 Aras Developments have begun work on its Victoria Station student accommodation development of 24 apartments, medical units and parking at the former Canty Family owned site along the Wilton Road. It will be constructed around the same time-frame as 2 other student developments nearby at the former M&P O’Sullivan site (being developed by Fleming Construction on behalf of UCC), and Phase 2 of Paul Montgomery and Edmund Kenneally’s Victoria Mills.
– speaking of Montogomery-Kenneally projects, they are awaiting an approval tonight by CCC to joint-purchase a nice area of land along the Boreenmanna Road (Rose Cottage proximity) along with Barry Supple of John F. Supple Contractors. The land could net approx. 7m euros for CCC and will be developed under the condition that 40 or so of the 150+ units planned for the site are handed over to social-affordable use.
I take it you like the Capitol Cineplex plans then rodger ? 😉
