Multi-Sports Complex Refused in Naas, Co. Kildare

November 16, 2010

An Bord Pleanala have refused permission for a multi-sports complex in Monread North, Naas, Co. Kildare.  There were 3 reasons for refusal:

In this respect, it is considered that the proposed development would constitute urban generated development which would give rise to unsustainable transportation patterns and would result in the removal of established local sporting activities to a less sustainable location contrary to the provisions of Policy Statement RP1 of the Kildare County Development Plan, 2005 which seeks ‘To protect and improve amenities and recreational assets in the interests of residents and tourists alike’.
