The subject site currently comprises a single-storey residential dwelling with adjoining lands extending to approx. 6.45 acres (2.615 hectares). The lands are laid out in two divisions separated by a band of trees, with two existing access points off Carr’s Lane which connects to the Malahide Road.
The land falls under the Fingal Development plan 2023 – 2029 with approximately 3.6 acres (1.46 hectares) zoned under ‘RA’ Residential Area, that is to ‘Provide for new residential communities subject to the provision of the necessary social and physical infrastructure’ under which Residential is permitted in principle. The balance of the lands 2.86 acres (1.158 hectares) is zoned under GB ‘Green Belt’, that is to ‘Protect and provide for a Greenbelt.’
Conroy Crowe Kelly Architects have undertaken a feasibility study on the lands which demonstrates two separate residential schemes providing for either 35 houses or 66 apartments. The schemes have been carefully designed around a central open space focal point or towards trees and hedgerows along the boundaries. Both scenarios provide a potential future connection point westwards into the greenbelt zoned lands. This connection could occur in the event of these lands becoming residentially zoned at a future stage. There is a strong planning precedent for residential development with the recently completed apartment development at Carr’s Lane, Belcamp Manor and Gannon Home’s Belcamp development adjoining the property. Further details of the CCK study are available upon request.
The surrounding coastal towns of Portmarnock, Malahide and Howth are also nearby and offer a wide range of eateries, cafes and amenities. In addition to the significant employment in the City Centre, Dublin Airport, which is in close proximity, provides 19,900 direct jobs, with a further 11,700 indirect jobs in firms that support or supply to the airport. The site is highly accessible by car via ‘Northern Cross’ junction off the Malahide Road (R107), the M50 and M1 motorways and Dublin Airport approx. 8 minutes via car.
