Cairn has got permission for 124 houses and 170 apartments in Charlesland, 10% of which will be Social ones
2,700 sq. m of Community Enterprise Centre & offices are required to be built first. I asked Bord Pleanala to get this built first as developers only seem to want to build houses in Greystones. I wrote a paper in 2005 with the Chamber of Commerce about the need for this place for start up businesses and it was then incorporated into the zoning requirements. We need jobs so we don’t all have to commute. This zoning 15 years ago also provided for the 2 school sites one of which is just completed and the other will open, in temporary premise, this September.
The Bord also insists on 52 extra childcare places above the space applied for. The apartment development will include a concierge, security room & communal amenity room.
