Draft Maynooth Plan 2013 – 2019 On Public Display

January 9, 2013

The draft Maynooth Plan is now on public display with submissions being invited from members of the public, landowners etc over the next 6 weeks.

Unlike many recently adopted Local Area Plan in Kildare, there is a need to zone additional lands in Maynooth for residential development to meet the demand for an additional 828 dwelling over the lifetime of the plan.

Under the draft Plan a significant amount of land within the town will require a flood risk assessment to be prepared as part of any application.

Submission lodged to the Council will be taken into consideration by the planners who will then furnish the councillors with a report containing their recommendations (Manager’s Report).  This opportunity is therefore critical in terms of influencing the contents of the Plan for the town.


An Bord Pleanala grants permission for Maynooth Campus Development

October 27, 2011

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”.
