Windsor Motors Site Planning Appeal

7 Sep 2015

In February of this year the owners of the Windsor Motors/Rialto Cinema site submitted a planning application to Dublin City Council for the development of a 5 storey building, consisting of space for a discount retailer and 24 apartments. Dublin City Council sought public views on the planning application in March. Dolphin Alliance as well as a number of local residents made submitted an observation highlighting issues and concerns they identified with the planning application. The City Council granted planning permission for the proposal with a number of conditions in August.  The Dolphin Alliance reviewed the updated plans and felt that there were still issues of concern that would impact negatively on residents.  On that basis they appealed the planning decision to the national planning appeals board. It is expected a decision will be made next year.
