Planning permission was granted by both Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and An Bord Pleanala in 2010 and subsequently extended in 2014 for the change of use and extension of the premises to provide a retail and office development (ABP Ref. PL06D.234290, DLRCC Reg. Ref. D09A/0291/E). This permission, which provided a total development area of 271 sq m was not implemented and expired on 20 January 2020. This permission demonstrates the future development of the property subject to planning permission.
