George Sell George Sell Uploaded 12 March 2017


Ireland: A planning application has been submitted for a three-storey aparthotel development in Rathcoole.

If successful the project will consist of 69 single units and and two three-bedroom family suites, with a reception, a restaurant or coffee shop, and bar, 15 retail units and four market stalls on the site of Rathcoole's The Glebe House.

The house is a former rectory which has been previously fire damaged, causing the original interior features to be destroyed. The application, which has been submitted by LBJ Properties Ltd, outlines plans to demolish a number of ancillary sheds and outhouses that are not part of the original historical fabric of The Glebe House.

It is also proposed that a number of conservation works will be carried out on The Glebe House, including extensive stabilisation works, the reinstatement of a Blue Bangor slate roof with red ridge detail and bell detail to the edge of the roof, the closing up of 20th century openings and the reinstatement of sash windows and a hardwood door to the Main Street south elevation, and two new double-glazed timber doors to the west wing in the existing openings. The plans also include the construction of a single-storey ground floor extension, and two-storey zinc clad wings with central single-storey extension with flat roof to the rear of the north elevation of Glebe House, which is the original front entrance.

The closing date for third party submissions is March 21, which will be followed by South Dublin County Council's decision on April 11.
