Kildare County Council Refuse Permission for Mixed-Use Development in Clane

January 6, 2010

James Browne was refused permision for demolition of existing bungalow and construction of new mixed use development comprising of 10no. apartments (7no. 1 bed apartments and 3no. 2 bed apartments) 8no. retail/commercial units (comprising a total of 760 sqm) etc on Main Street, Clane, Co. Kildare.  The reasons for refusal related were:

1. (a) Proposed development would be premature pending the upgrading of Osberstown WWTP and the sewer network in the Clane catchment.

 (b) Proposed development would be premature pending the upgrading of existing 225mm diameter foul sewer to 300mm diameter because the existing sewer is surcharging and has no capacity to cater for flows generated from proposed development in addition to existing development.

 (c) Existing 300 Surface water system has no capacity to cater for flows generated from proposed development in addition to existing flows.

d) Proposal submitted for surface water attenuation did not take into account 1:100 year flood. No design calculation submitted for surface water attenuation.

 The proposed development as currently proposed, therefore, would be prejudicial to public health and contrary to the proper planning and sustainable development of the area.

 2. The proposed development by reason of its scale, design and location, would constitute disorderly development, would be out of character with the pattern of development in the area, would seriously injure the amenities of the area and of property in the vicinity and would, therefore, be contrary to the proper planning and development of the area.

 3. The proposed development, by reason of its proximity to adjoining dwellings, would seriously injure the amenities of these dwellings through overlooking and consequent loss of privacy and would, therefore, be contrary to the proper planning and sustainable development of the area.
