An Board Pleanala overule recommendation from inspector to refuse permission for residential development in Allenwood, Co. Kildare

An Bord Pleanala has overruled the advice of their inspector to refuse permission for 84 dwellings and a creche in Allenwood South, Allenwood, Co. Kildare.  The inspector had recommended that the decision of Kildare County Council to grant permission should be overturned.  In deciding not to accept the Inspector’s recommendation to refuse permission, the Board considered that the housing layout proposed (which included substantial open space areas), and the density of development was acceptable and noted that the development offered an opportunity to consolidate the village and improve community facilities. The Board considered that an appropriate long term phasing arrangement could resolve some of the Inspector’s concerns regarding the scale of development and this could be achieved by means of condition. The Board granted a 10 year permission subject to 27 conditions. One of the conditions requires land to be donated for a school.
