Dublin City Council have granted permission for the larger part of the proposed development on Scully’s Field. Scully’s Field is a site adjacent to the River Dodder between Milltown and Clonskeagh, and the local community have been fighting a long-term battle to have the site made available as a public park or natural amenity. This planning permission is a major blow to the campaign, but it will be appealed to An Bord Pleanála.
Another planning application is still being considered, for 18 apartments on a portion of the site in different ownership. If this is granted it will have to be appealed separately.
I’m going to try to get my hands on the planner’s report, but in the meantime a summary of the planning application is available.
