t’s gone through a few changes since it was Ireton’s shop back in the 1950s, and now the corner spot known as Kilcoole House is about to get a major revamp.
Having been given the green light in February by Wicklow County Council, this mixed development of apartments and commercial units has now been given the thumbs up by An Bord Pleanála.
Ashlawn plans Douglas Hatton
It means that developer Douglas Hatton will be building two blocks up to three storeys in height right across from Byrne’s Pub and Thrift Shop, where Lott Lane meets the town centre.
The objection came for a neighbour, who suggested the ‘overall design, scale, mass and height of the proposed development‘ was a ‘hazardous urban design that does not accord with or be in keeping with the character of this specific area of Kilcoole‘.
Setting down 17 conditions, An Bord Pleanála said of their decision, ‘It is considered that, subject to compliance with the conditions set out below, the proposed development would not seriously injure the visual or residential amenities of the area or of property in the vicinity, would be acceptable in terms of urban design, height and quantum of development, and would also be acceptable in terms of pedestrian and traffic safety and convenience.’
In regard to the development itself, it will consist of three commercial units, three one-bed apartments, two two-bed duplex apartments, and a three-bed duplex.
