Plans for St Teresa's regeneration published

The plan will see 14 of the 16 blocks of flats torn down and replaced

A PLAN TO demolish 14 blocks of flats in Dublin’s south inner-city has been published by Dublin City Council.

St Teresa’s Gardens, near The Coombe, was given the go-ahead for a regeneration project in 2012, having first been earmarked for work in 2005.

Since then, a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) plan has been shelved and the plan delayed.

Funding for the project was provided in Budget 2014, meaning that the plan can now progress. The plan will see all but two of the 16 blocks of flats torn down. Those blocks left standing will be completely changed internally.

The council will build 50 houses on the site, with 34 terraced houses and 16 apartments.

The plans will be on display in City Hall and submissions can be made until 7 March.

Subject to the plan being passed by councillors, the demolition is expected to begin in the summer.

The council’s plan will see 550 less housing units built than under the PPP scheme, but less land will be used. It is hoped that private investment can be attracted for the left over land.
