New, larger Irish Jewish Museum granted planning permission

An Bord Pleanála granted permission with ‘revised conditions’.


A TWO-STOREY Irish Jewish Museum and reinstated synagogue has been granted planning permission in Portobello, Dublin.

An Bord Pleanála decided by a majority of five to three to grant permission generally, with a number of revised conditions.

The Bord decided that the proposed development would not seriously injure the visual or residential amenities of the area of property in the vicinity, it would not be prejudicial to public health or pose a risk to flooding.

It also said it would be acceptable in terms of traffic safety and convenience.

The conditions include that a full architectural survey of the exteriors and the interiors of the buildings proposed for demolition on the site be carried out; that the height of the plant zone not exceed a certain height; and that the noise level during development not exceed a certain level.

The Bord also asked that prior to the opening of the museum, the applicant give a mobility management plan to the Bord that will include measures to encourage the use of sustainable modes of transport to the location.

There had been some opposition from locals to the demolition of numbers 3 – 7 on Walworth Road in Portobello and the construction of the museum.
