DescriptionThe lands comprises a rectangular shaped site with 29m frontage to Clonsilla Road (R121) and extend to 0.77 hectares (1.9 acres). The property includes two derelict cottages facing on to the Clonsilla Road. The site is mostly level and is bounded by Clonsilla Road to the north, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to the west, a narrow strip of undeveloped residentially zoned land situated to the south, and an undeveloped site extending to a 1.42 HA (3.51 acres) of further Town Centre zoned land to the east which we understand is in the ownership of Aldi. A portion of the site in sale was previously used for parking vehicles and is set out as a compound with a concrete yard area, two steel gates and an aluminium fence run. The remainder of the site is in grass and is bounded by a row of poplar trees to the east.
On the adjoining site, Aldi Stores (Ireland) Limited were refused planning permission by Fingal County Council in late 2019 and this is on appeal to An Bord Pleanala for the construction of a mixed use residential and retail scheme.
The property is situated in an area zoned Objective TC - Town and District Centre. Objective: Protect and enhance the special physical and social character of town and district centres and provide and/or improve urban facilities.
