Proposal:  Pursuant to the requirements of the above, notice is hereby given of the proposed demolition of the former Health centre and St Michael’s community centre at Emmet Road, Inchicore, Dublin 8 and associated site clearance works which include the remains of a disused halting site together with internal site walls, fences, hard surfaces and utilities. No new construction works are proposed at this time, other than those necessary to secure the site or divert services.  The foundations of the buildings will be removed, and all services will be removed insofar as this is practicable.

The site is bounded by a combination of walls and fences of different types, and it is proposed to leave these in place, pending re-development.  Most of the paved surface of the site will be removed, and the site grassed pending redevelopment.  The redevelopment of the subject site will be subject of a separate planning application and consultation process.


Plans and Particulars of the proposed development may be inspected or purchased at a fee not exceeding the reasonable cost of making a copy for a period of 4 weeks from Tuesday 16th February 2021 up to and including 15th March 2021 during public opening hours at the offices of Dublin City Council, Public Counter, Planning and Property Development Department, Block 4, Ground Floor, Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8, Monday - Friday 09.00hrs to 16.30hrs.


The Local Authority  has concluded following a preliminary examination that there is no real likelihood of the proposed development having significant effects on the environment and therefore an EIAR is not required.

A submission or observation in relation to the proposed development, dealing with the proper planning and sustainable development of the area in which the development would be situated, may be made, in writing, to the Executive Manager, Planning and Property Development Department, Dublin City Council, Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8, before 16.30hrs on Wednesday 31st March 2021, or below
