COMHAIRLE CONTAE ÁTHA CLIATH THEAS
SOUTH DUBLIN COUNTY COUNCIL
- MEETING OF LUCAN AREA COMMITTEE
- Tuesday, May 22, 2018
- MOTION NO. 8
- MOTION: Councillor L. O’Toole
- “That this Area Committee requests the Chief Executive to provide a report on the total number of units in Adamstown to date and to include the total percentages of each social, affordable and downsizing houses within the SDZ Adamstown policy, and how many of these percentages have been built/completed to date.”
- There are three developers with lands within the Adamstown SDZ and the Housing Department are in advanced negotiations with each developer to formalise the Part V requirements on their schemes which are at various stages of the process ranging from pre-planning to construction. There are no affordable housing units within the SDZ due to the fact that there is no national affordable housing scheme. In respect of the Part V requirement there are detailed negotiations progressing with two developers who have planning permissions granted for schemes within the SDZ to deliver social housing units towards the end of 2018 with many more units due to be delivered from 2019 onwards. In relation to the third developer, pre-planning meetings have taken place. There is also a legacy issue within the Adamstown SDZ whereby Part V units were front loaded and delivered however due to the downturn in the economy the developer did not complete the schemes. The Part V process is complex and time consuming especially on large developments such as Adamstown. As soon as the discussions have progressed to Part V agreement stage, a full report will be given.
