The Council has replied to the Department of Education’s latest planning application for the IGB site. In the Notification of Request for Further Information, dated 2/9/22, the Council wants the site to be opened for pedestrian/cyclist permeability between Goatstown Road, Farmhill Road, Mount Carmel Road and Taney Avenue. They also want the land at the back to be publicly accessible. This is as per the conditions of the zoning on the site (F zoning). However they do say that as it’s an application for temporary buildings, they will consider time-limited openings, and also fenced-off areas, where required.
We believe the Department has up to 6 months to respond. Very disappointing for the schools, who need to be move onto this site as soon as possible.
