1. 15th April 2016 An Bord Pleanála 64 Marlborough St Dublin 1 RE: Appeal Reference 29N.246250 regarding Dublin City Council planning application 4242/15 – 1, 1A and 1B (and lands to the rear of same) Sybil Hill Road, Raheny, Dublin 5 A chara, I write to support the various appeals submitted against the above decision to grant planning permission at this location as follows: Development scale and impact on the Sybil Hill vista – as highlighted before, the 3 to 5- storey scale of the development towards the front of the site will have a major negative visual impact both on Sybil Hill House and on the vista as you travel along Sybil Hill road; the Nursing Home while of similar scale has a set-back from the main road Traffic and parking – there is already a traffic congestion problem at this location caused by a combination of park users, school drop-offs and general through traffic in the area. A detailed traffic cell study should be undertaken by the Local Authority to plan out an overall traffic strategy for this neighbourhood before the situation worsens. I understand that the applicant undertook their Study in July which is not peak time – late September would be the best time for this to be undertaken in order to understand all the pressures in the area Distance to a public transport hub – I understand that the applicant is justifying greater density of development on this site on the basis that it is within 500 metres of Harmonstown DART station; this assertion was refuted by your Inspector in a previous appeal and should be rejected again as any commuter going to Harmonstown will have to travel more than 500 metres to get there. Please consider the above carefully in your deliberations. Yours faithfully, ______________ Cllr. Naoise Ó Muirí – Fine Gael
