Ballsbridge and Donnybrook Appeal Success
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.
An Bord Pleanála granted permission (PL 29S 246644) for a two-storey residential mews building at 44 Donnybrook Road, Dublin 4, facing onto Rampart Lane.
We developed a policy and design strategy in conjunction with Keenan Lynch Architects to articulate clear grounds of appeal and precedent that addressed the council’s concerns and reassured the board on the positive impacts of the infill scheme.
Dublin City Council issued a split decision for revisions to a residence at 6 St. Mary’s Road, Ballsbridge, allowing the residential element but refusing off-street access. The council’s decision was overturned by An Bord Pleanála who granted permission (PL 29S 246668) on the basis of the precedent and survey work presented in our appeal, which illustrated that in this specific case there would be no negative impact on residential amenity or the capacity of on-street parking.
