New Residential Development at Dál Riada House, Blackrock, Co. Dublin.


FAC is delighted to have secured planning permission for our client Red Block Construction Ltd. for an infill residential development within the grounds of Dál Riada House (a Protected Structure) on Avoca Avenue in Blackrock. This decision upheld Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council’s decision to Grant Permission and overturning ABP and Council’s previous Refusal at the site.  This decision shall now enable the development of nine two storey dwellings and conservation repair works to Dál Riada House in addition to repair of the Coach House.
