Roscommon native Enda Duignan brought his extensive professional and commercial planning expertise to FAC just over a year ago, on his return from a four-year sojourn in Melbourne. While there, he worked with a planning consultancy specialising in securing planning approval for a variety of residential and commercial developments across Melbourne and the State of Victoria.
Minister for Housing Simon Coveney formally launched Pillar 2 of ‘Rebuilding Ireland – Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness‘ today; this follows the publication of the strategy in July (see rebuildingireland.ie).
We provide a range of services to private clients of all sizes throughout the regulatory planning process. Our experience helps present their case effectively and find solutions that surmount development blockages. Two recent examples in recent weeks highlight how FAC has helped overturn refusal decisions from Dublin City Council, adding value to development schemes for our clients.
FAC has been advising extensively on change of use and vacant properties in recent years, including across the retail and restaurant space and has just successfully obtained Planning Permission from Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council for Quigley’s Café, a family-owned business who currently have 15 cafés across the country.
