Clonburris SDZ

Noting the designation of an extended Clonburris SDZ by Government under SI 604 of 2015; and further noting that under S.169(9) of the Planning & Development Act the preparation of an SDZ planning scheme can override and revoke zonings outlined in the Development Plan; it is proposed that the future use of all these lands in the now-designated and extended Clonburris SDZ should be separately considered in the context of the preparation of the SDZ planning scheme, including with reference to detailed transport assessments; and therefore, in the interim, all lands in the extended SDZ should be zoned as ‘SDZ’, with the following exceptions;

Furthermore, it will the policy of South Dublin County Council to seek to adhere to all local objectives contained in the Development Plan by including them in any future planning scheme, including, for example, C12 SLO 1 requiring the provision of public open space, including at least one full size playing pitch.

Mot (15)

Submitted by:
Councillor D. Richardson
Responsibility:
Brian Keaney

Brittas

While CS6 SLO 3 (Core Strategy 6 Strategic Local Objective 3) is welcomed with respect to Brittas, a similar objective has been included in the two previous County Development Plans 2004-2010 and 2010-2016 yet no planning study has been carried out. While the population of South Dublin has grown by 33% between 1986 and 2011 (+65659 persons) the population of Brittas has declined over the same 25 year period by 11% from 192 to 176 persons. The local pub (Blue Gardenia) and shop have both closed and the positive policies and objectives with respect to housing and tourism which are contained in the current Development Plan have come to nothing.

The objective of the planning study will be to ensure the survival of the village in the first place and then to facilitate controlled growth so that Brittas becomes a self-sustaining settlement incorporating the development of the tourism potential of the Brittas Ponds as an Angling venue as well as investigating the development of tourism facilities that can benefit from location of the village at within the Dublin mountains.

It is therefore considered that while objective CS6 SLO3 is positive in light of the inaction that has occurred in the past, Brittas needs more certainty and for that reason it is proposed that a new objective be included to complement CS6 SLO3: -

It is the objective of the Council that the Brittas Planning Study will commence within 3 months of the adoption of the County Development Plan 2016-2022 and will be completed within a period of 12 months.

The study boundary will be defined in consultation with local residents, landowners and local representatives.

Upon completion the Planning Study will be incorporated into the Development Plan by way of a variation to the plan and will include a written statement setting out development objectives and policies for Brittas and associated maps.

Mot (16)

Submitted by:
Councillor E. Higgins
Responsibility:
Brian Keaney

With reference to Chapter 2, that Brittas be designated as a rural Village and be zoned accordingly in order to accommodate reasonable sustainable development “in the same manner as all other towns and villages in the County”. Modest development in keeping with the rural nature of Brittas is encouraged in order to reverse the population decline, preserve the viability of the local community and ensure that the local national school, shop, pub & restaurant survive and flourish. Evidence of the decline may be seen in the fact that Brittas can’t field a GAA team at any level and as a result have lost their playing field. The closure of the Blue Gardenia pub & restaurant further emphasises this point. Consideration should be given to relaxing the regulations governing one-off housing with respect to local people and we recommend that a further area immediately outside of the Village currently be rezoned from current zoning, an area extending to about 2km. This remains of primary concern and the renewal of ‘protected views’ status on local roads militates against any such relaxation as we feel that it may become yet another planning obstacle. The Brittas and Districts Community Association feel that the consequence of the current zoning of their area is a recipe for the gradual erosion of the community as it is exceptional to be able to demonstrate “a genuine need to live in the area”. There is a natural desire for people who are native to Brittas to settle there and we earnestly request a softer interpretation of this “need” rule to apply in our particular area. The combination of Village-centred modest development together with some sensible one- off housing is the reasonable housing balance proposed.

Allowing for expansion at Tallaght Hospital: The proposal to locate the National Children’s Hospital near Tallaght Hospital was hamstrung due to the size and shape of the site on offer i.e. the old St Malruan’s Halting Site and Staff car park. Considering that it is still a very real possibility that this project will not go ahead at the current location being pursued at St James’s Hospital due to planning restrictions, this Council should agree an objective which would facilitate the growth of the Hospital if necessary into what is now the Cookstown Industrial Estate. It is also now clear to all that the Acute Hospital System is simply not big enough and so there needs to be space for expansion allowed for at the Tallaght Hospital site.

The objective would therefore need to state that no new Industrial Development will be considered on the lands South of the second avenue and West of the Cookstown Road within the Cookstown Industrial Estate as that land may need to be re- zone for Institutional use during the term of this Development Plan. The objective also need to state that a variation to the County Development Plan will be put in train immediately if the question of the location of the National Children’s Hospital changes again.

That, notwithstanding the comments of the DEC&LG Ref 0183, The NRA and TII, the objective as set out in Table 6.5 Six Year Plan and Table 6.6 Medium to Long Term Plan to provide a segregated junction at Kennelsfort/R148 shall remain part of the 2016 – 2022 Development Plan and is noted It is also noted that concerns have been raised that the proposed upgrade would not be in accordance with established policy. Section 5.8.3 - Principles of Road Development of the Draft Transport Stagey for the Greater Dublin Region states that: ‘That there will be no significant increase in road capacity for private vehicles on radial roads inside the M50 motorway’. This is not the purpose of the proposed segregated junction; safety for pedestrians and cyclists, reduction of air and noise pollution, the integrity of the community as well as the free movement of Buses, Public Transport and Commercial Vehicles are the real issues.

It is accepted that this has been a long standing approach from the NTA, as further noted in Section 3.2.6 of the Road Network Draft Transport Strategy: ‘Since the mid-1990s, transport policy in the GDA has been directed towards reducing the growth in car travel and increasing the use of public transport, cycling and walking. The Section 5.8.2 Regional and Local Roads of the Draft Transport Strategy states: ‘Address localised traffic delay locations, including on radial routes inside the M50 C-Ring, in cases where the primary reason for intervention is to address safety or public transport issues at such locations’

It is accepted that the provision of a segregated junction, or flyover, at this location is a substantial financial commitment. A project of this scale could not be funded by SDCC alone and the support of the NTA would also be crucial should funding from a national agency be sought. As such a strong case for such funding must be made early in the lifetime of the 2016-2022 CDP, supported by a feasibility study and strong cost/benefit analysis that shows a substantial improvement in the level of service afforded to sustainable users, whilst not increasing the capacity of the street network for private cars.

That, notwithstanding the comments of the DEC&LG Ref 0183, The NRA and TII, the objective as set out in Table 6.5 Six Year Plan and Table 6.6 Medium to Long Term Plan to provide Junction 8 on the M50 at Cloverhill shall remain part of the 2016 – 2022 Development Plan. While it is noted that the management of the M50 is the remit of TII its location, operation and service profoundly impact on SDCC local communities. The Draft Transport Strategy for the Greater Dublin Area 2016-2035 notes that ‘traffic levels on the M50 have continued to grow, even during the economic downturn, and delays on this corridor are now a common feature, despite a near-doubling of its capacity in recent years’. The Transport Strategy also states that ‘other than on the southern section of the route, further capacity enhancements to the M50 are neither physically possible nor environmentally desirable’. This reality is readily accepted. However, the restoration of J8 will not increase traffic on the M50 but rather provide a more readily accessible route for (especially Commercial Traffic for) Clondalkin (including Clonburris when developed), Park West/Cherry Orchard (proposed as a new Town by DCC) and the Liffey Valley Major Retail Centre as well as for the Cloverhill and Wheatfield Prisons and Courthouses. If anything, it will release other pressure points and will certainly help move local communities closer to desirable EU norms in terms of health and safety.

Flood risk at Baldonnell.

That all lands at Baldonnell that are subject to a flood risk as per the Strategic Flood Risk Assessment carried out by RPS in 2015 for the SDCC Development Plan be zoned for agricultural use and cannot be considered for any other zoning until the flood risk is fully mitigated. This approach would be consistent with the OPWs Planning System and Flood Risk Management Guidelines 2009.

Having a plan from a developer to mitigate the risk local to the site is not sufficient as it is almost certain that the works to fully mitigate such a risk would need to be carried out over a much longer section upstream along the Camac river and could only be done by the local authority.

Keep waterways free from inappropriate development and incompatible use, including clearance and storage of materials taking place within a minimum distance of 10-15m from each bank of any river, stream or watercourse, to ensure that public use is not prejudiced by incompatible use, such as facilities for noise-generating sports and interference with public walking and cycling routes and public rights of way. Protect, maintain and enhance their natural heritage, appearance, quality and landscape character and archaeological heritage and avoid adverse visual impacts so as to maintain their aesthetic,ecological, amenity and tourism and recreational values from the impacts of dispersed and highly visible development. Create and maintain buffer zones and riparian corridors and keep them in an open state and in a natural condition by discouraging culverting or realignment. Prohibit developments which are likely to have significant adverse visual impacts, either individually or cumulatively, on the character of River Valleys and where there is no overriding need for the development to be in that particular location. Ensure that, where an overriding need is demonstrated for a particular development in the River Valleys, careful consideration is given to site selection. The development should be appropriate in scale and be sited, designed and landscaped in a manner which minimises potential adverse impacts on the landscape. Take into account any landscape, nature or archaeological designations. Locate new development in water corridor landscape character areas towards existing structures and mature vegetation. Seek during redevelopment the creation of a riparian buffer strip, where practicable. Promote the natural amenities of rivers for the benefit of recreation and tourism. Development in identified floodplains and riparian corridors must not adversely affect the river’s function as a green infrastructure corridor. Adopt a regional approach in the protection of watercourses by co-operating with neighbouring counties. Seek to limit development in identified floodplains and preserve riparian corridors. Development proposals in river corridors will be considered favourably providing  that they do not involve land filing, diverting, culverting or realignment of river or stream corridors and that  they do not have a negative effect on the distinctive character and appearance of the waterways corridor and the specific characteristic and landscape elements of the specific site and its context.

Provide linkages from built up areas to the countryside and to link with public rights of way in adjoining counties.

2  Provide adequate signposting and waymarking on rights of way.

3  Protect and promote Greeenwaysand consider designating them as public rights of way.

4  Identify and map on an ongoing basis public rights of way and incorporate them in the Plan by way of  a Variation.

5  Recognizing the importance of established public rights of way for the common good, especially in tourist areas and those which provide access to archaeological sites, National Monuments, lakeshores, riverbanks, upland areas, water corridors or other places of natural beauty or recreational utility and to encourage cycling and walking, maintain, preserve, protect, conserve, enhance, promote and improve them. Ensure that they are effectively maintained by controlling undergrowth, trees and bushes.

6  Prohibit development and keep free from obstruction existing rights of way, and take legal action if necessary, to prevent any attempt to close them off.

7  Existing Public Rights of Way and established walkingroutes shall be identifiedprior to any new forestry planting, new infrastructural, energy/telecommunications or golf course developments and any other development capable of affecting the respective right of way.

8  Development will not be permitted where a public right of way will be affected unless its character and convenience is maintained by: 

 (i) the footpath/bridleway being diverted by the minimal practical distance and the route continues to be segregated from vehicular traffic;

(ii) Appropriate legal procedures have been undertaken to extinguish the existing right of way and to establish the new right of way to replace it.

On page 158 include an Action: Identify the existing public rights of way which give access to mountains, lake shores, riverbanks or other places of natural beauty or recreational activity using the following methodology:

Place an advert in local papers seeking submissions from the public to identify public rights of way which give access to mountains, lakeshores, riverbanks or other places of natural beauty or recreational utility.

Identify existing rights of ways, paths, and access points to mountains, lakeshores, riverbanks or other places of natural beauty or recreational activity.

Identify access points to mountains, lakeshores, riverbanks or other places of natural beauty or recreational activity which the Council have maintained or repaired with a view to identifying public rights of way.

Carry out a desktop analysis of public records, maps, aerial photographs and newspaper accounts to identify reputations of public rights of way.

Once the list is compiled, advertise and put it on display. The public will be invited to make submissions on the validity of the public rights of way.

Endeavor to verify and list the public rights of way and begin the formal process for designating rights of way under Section 14 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended). Vary the Plan to include the list and map showing the public rights of way.

On page 210 (iii)  Fencing  Replace by: It is a requirement of the Planning Regulations 2001 Art 9(I)(a)(x) that the fencing or enclosure of land open to or used by the publicduring the ten years preceding such fencing or enclosure requires planning permission. Wire fencing constitutes visual pollution and destroys the “away from it all” feeling which makes upland areas such an attraction for both local people and visitors. There has been a large increase in the amount of new fencing in upland areas. Barbed wire has been used in most of this new fencing, which, in the absence of stiles or gates, makes access for recreational users of our countryside almost impossible. Traditional hill-sheep farming rarely required fencing, but since the introduction of REPS(now AEOS), sheep-farmers must, *in certain circumstances, stock-proof their land. The challenge is to ensure that such fencing will be done in a manner that will meet the requirements of AEOS without impinging on access for hill walkers.

2nd para  Insert: unless such fencing is essential to the viability of the farm after areas.

Discourage inappropriate development in open countryside and prohibit developments which are likely to have significant adverse visual impacts, either individually or cumulatively, on the character of the uplands, unless there is no overriding need for the development to be in that particular location. Where an overriding need is demonstrated ensure that it is appropriate in bulk and scale and is sited, designed and landscaped in a manner which minimises potential adverse impacts on the landscape. Ensure that development will not significantly interfere or detract from scenic uplands and that particular regard is had to potential impacts of new developments and require that proposed developments demonstrate that every effort has been made to reduce visual impacts (including site selection and design) and that visually prominent sites have been avoided to minimise visibility from scenic routes, walking trails, public amenities, settlements and roads. Have particular regard to the potential impacts of development on sensitive upland areas and materially consider the difficulty of establishing and maintaining screening vegetation.

"Amend 11.6.1 Water management section (iii) Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) to read:

In general all new developments will be required to incorporate Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS). Sustainable Drainage Systems include devices such as swales, permeable pavements, filter drains, storage ponds, constructed wetlands, soakways and green roofs. In some exceptional cases and at the discretion of the Planning Authority, where it is demonstrated that SuDS devices are not feasible, approval may be given to install underground attenuation tanks or enlarged pipes in conjunction with other devices to achieve the required water quality. Such alternative measures will only be considered as a last resort.

All new commercial, industrial and public buildings shall be required to incorporate a green roof into their development.

Watercourses should remain open in their natural valley and culverting shall be confined to road crossings. In exceptional circumstances and at the discretion of the Planning Authority, approval may be given to install a culvert within a development where it is demonstrated that this is the most appropriate design response based on site specific constraints/circumstances."
