An Bord Pleanala grants permission for Maynooth Campus Development

Following a third party appeal by local residents, An Bord Pleanala has upheld the decision of Kildare County Council to grant permission for the construction of the North Campus Student Housing Complex comprising 77 student apartments, residents office, student social room, retail unit and bicycle stores arranged in 4no. courtyard buildings from 3 -9 storeys in height.

In granting permission the Board concluded that “Having regard to the established use of the site as a university campus, the location of the proposed development and its design, it is considered that, subject to compliance with the conditions set out below, the proposed development would not be visually obtrusive and would not seriously injure the amenities of residential property in the vicinity due to the significant separation distance from neighbouring residences. Having regard to the surface water measures proposed, it is considered that the proposed development would reduce the level of existing surface water runoff from the site thereby reducing the level of existing flood risk associated with the unnamed stream to the north. The proposed development would, therefore, be in accordance with the proper planning and sustainable development of the area”.
