On Wednesday 12 July 2017 a Site Notice appeared in Ratoath stating:
“Owr Construction Limited intends to apply for permission for development on this 0.1132 Ha site at the corner of Seagrave Hall and Fairyhouse Road, Co. Meath. … The proposed development is for: “for a three storey residential development comprising a terrace of 4 No. 4 bed dwellings … The dwellings will range in size from 166.9 sq. m to 187.97 sq. m. The development will also include the provision of a new vehicular access off Seagrave Hall to the north west of the site; 8 no. car-parking spaces…”
Meath County Council received the Planning Application (RA170815) the previous day.
The proposed high density, three-storey, sixteen-bedroom building is completely inappropriate for this location. Its size and height, limited open spaces and inadequate car parking means that there will be a very negative impact on existing residents in the area. For example, in terms of:
- Greatly reduced privacy
- Hazardous location of the location
- Risks associated with on-street parking
- Increased noise levels
- Loss of trees and an attractive vista
- Use of local amenities by non-residents
- Property values
It will also establish a very undesirable precedent for future developments in the area.
Please consider submitting a comment letter to Meath County Council. This can be online (www.meath.ie/CountyCouncil/Planning) or in writing to:
Planning Department, Meath County Council, Buvinda House, Dublin Road, Navan, Co Meath.
Comments on the application must be received by Meath County Council by Tuesday 14 August.
