DLRCC Recommends Refusal For €230M Leopardstown Apartment Scheme

Local opposition to plans for a “fast track” €230 million apartment scheme on Leopardstown Road in Dublin 18 have received a boost. Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council has recommended that the 463-unit apartment scheme, rising to 10 storeys in height, should be refused.

The strategic housing development scheme for a site located between Brewery Road and Leopardstown Road in Dublin 18, close to the Central Park office park and Sandyford industrial estate, by Homeland Silverpines Ltd, comprising six apartment blocks, faces strong local opposition. Environmental group An Taisce also opposes the scheme.

In total, more than 90 objections have been lodged by locals against the scheme.
