Liscove Limited intend to apply to An Bord Pleanála for permission for a strategic housing development at this c. 10.8 Ha site at lands at Wayside, Enniskerry Road and Glenamuck Road, Kilternan, Dublin 18, which include a derelict dwelling known as ‘Rockville’ and associated derelict outbuildings, Enniskerry Road, Kilternan, Dublin 18, D18Y199. The site is generally bounded by the Glenamuck Road to the north; Kilternan Country Market and the Sancta Maria property to the north and west; a recently constructed residential development named "Rockville" to the north-east; the Enniskerry Road to the south-west; dwellings to the south; and lands that will facilitate the future Glenamuck Link Distributor Road to the east.
Road works are also proposed to facilitate access to the development from the Enniskerry Road; to the approved Part 8 Enniskerry Road/Glenamuck Road Junction Upgrade Scheme on Glenamuck Road (DLRCC Part 8 Ref PC/IC/01/17); and to the approved Glenamuck District Roads Scheme (GDRS) (ABP Ref:HA06D.303945) on the Glenamuck Link Distributor Road (GLDR). Drainage and water works are also proposed to connect to services on the Glenamuck Road and Enniskerry Road.
At the Glenamuck Road access point, this will include works, inclusive of any necessary tie-ins, to the footpath and cycle track to create a side road access junction incorporating the provision of an uncontrolled pedestrian crossing across the side road junction on a raised table and the changing of the cycle track to a cycle lane at road level as the cycle facility passes the side road junction. Surface water and foul drainage infrastructure is proposed towards the north of the site into the drainage infrastructure to be constructed as part of the Part 8 scheme. Potable water is to be provided from the existing piped infrastructure adjacent to the site along Glenamuck Road. These interfacing works are proposed on an area measuring c. 0.05 Ha.
At the GLDR access point, this will include works, inclusive of any necessary tie-ins, to the footpath and cycle track to create a side road access junction incorporating the provision of short section of shared path and an uncontrolled shared pedestrian and cyclist crossing across the side road junction on a raised table. The works will also include the provision of a toucan crossing, inclusive of the necessary traffic signal equipment, immediately south of the access point to facilitate pedestrian and cyclist movement across the mainline road. All works at the GLDR access point will include the provision of the necessary tactile paving layouts and are provided on an area measuring c. 0.06 Ha.
At the Enniskerry Road, works are proposed to facilitate 3 No. new accesses for the development along with modifications to Enniskerry Road. The 3 No. side road priority access junctions incorporate the provision of an uncontrolled pedestrian crossing across the side road junction on a raised table. The modifications to Enniskerry Road fronting the development (circa 320 metres) includes the narrowing of the carriageway down to 6.5 metres (i.e. a 3.25 metres running lane in each direction) from the front of the kerb on western side of Enniskerry Road. The remaining former carriageway, which varies in width of c. 2 metres, will be reallocated for other road users and will include the introduction of a widened pedestrian footpath and landscaped buffer on the eastern side of the road adjoining the proposed development. The above works are inclusive of all necessary tie-in works such as new kerb along eastern side of Enniskerry Road, drainage details, road marking, signage and public lighting. Potable water is to be provided from the existing piped infrastructure adjacent to the site along the Enniskerry Road. The interface works on Enniskerry Road measures c. 0.19 Ha.
Surface water and foul drainage infrastructure is proposed to connect into and through the existing/permitted Rockville developments (DLR Reg. Refs. D17A/0793, D18A/0566 and D20A/0015) on a total area measuring c. 0.09 ha. The development site area and drainage and roads works areas will provide a total application site area of c. 11.2 Ha. The development will principally consist of: the demolition of c. 573.2 sq m of existing structures on site comprising a derelict dwelling known as ‘Rockville’ and associated derelict outbuildings; and the provision of a mixed use development consisting of 383 No. residential units (165 No. houses, 118 No. duplex units and 100 No. apartments) and a Neighbourhood Centre, which will provide a creche (439 sq m), office (317 sq m), medical (147 sq m), retail (857 sq m), convenience retail (431 sq m) and a community facility (321 sq m). The 383 No. residential units will consist of 27 No. 1 bedroom units (19 No. apartments and 8 No. duplexes), 128 No. 2 bedroom units (78 No. apartments and 50 No. duplexes), 171 No. 3 bedroom units (108 No. houses, 3 No. apartments and 60 No. duplexes) and 57 No. 4 bedroom units (57 No. houses). The proposed development will range in height from 2 No. to 5 No. storeys (including podium/undercroft level in Apartment Blocks C and D and in the Neighbourhood Centre).
The development also provides: pedestrian links from Enniskerry Road and within the site to the neighbouring “Rockville” development to the north-east and a pedestrian/cycle route through the Dingle Way from Enniskerry Road to the future Glenamuck Link Distributor Road; 678 No. car parking spaces (110 No. in the undercroft of Blocks C and D and the Neighbourhood Centre and 568 No. at surface level) including 16 No. mobility impaired spaces, 73 No. electric vehicle spaces, 1 No. car share space, 4 No. drop-off spaces/loading bays; motorcycle parking; bicycle parking; bin storage; the decommissioning of the existing telecommunications mast at ground level and provision of new telecommunications infrastructure at roof level of the Neighbourhood Centre including shrouds, antennas and microwave link dishes (18 No. antennas and 6 No. transmission dishes, all enclosed in 9 No. shrouds together with all associated equipment); private balconies, terraces and gardens; hard and soft landscaping; sedum roofs; solar panels; boundary treatments; lighting; substations; plant; and all other associated site works above and below ground. The proposed development has a gross floor space of c. 43,120 sq m in addition to undercroft levels (under Apartment Blocks C and D measuring c. 1,347 sq m and under the Neighbourhood Centre measuring c. 2,183 sq m, which includes parking spaces, external storage, bin storage, bike storage and plant).
