Clondalkin social housing estate gets green light from council

Sinn Féin raised concerns about the lack of integration between social and private housing, however.

A PLAN TO build over 100 houses in Clondalkin, Dublin, has been approved by South Dublin County Council this evening.

Despite concerns made by Sinn Féin about the consultation process, 109 social houses were approved to be built at Grange.

Outlining his concerns, Sinn Féin councillor Mark Ward said that it was “unsatisfactory” that the site won’t be developed in a more integrated way.

“With one part a public private partnership model and the other part a joint venture model, this restricted proposed amendments and has undermined the planning process.”

Ward has called for council officials and technical staff/contractors to engage with the residents of Cherrywood Crescent before any work takes place to discuss their concerns about flood prevention methods being undertaken.

He also requested that a liaison group be established involving the Council and the residents associations of Cherrywood, Kilcarberry and Oldchurch to meet before during and after the development to ensure that all issues are dealt.
