201 Philipsburgh Avenue Marino is seeking Retention Permission

posted 22 Jan 2013, 08:46 by Eoin Kilfeather   [ updated 28 Feb 2016, 05:54 ]

Dear Residents,
The Marino Residents Association wishes to bring to your attention a local planning matter.
201 Philipsburgh Avenue Marino is seeking Retention Permission.
They are seeking . Alterations to internal layout to previously approved takeaway and restaurant planning grant to facilitate the omission of restaurant seating and increased food counter.. 
A brief history - planning permission from Dublin City Council was granted 2009 for a restaurant and take-away, with seating for 26 people and closing time at 11:30. The business operated only as a take-away and in 2010 when Enforcement from DCC investigated this and the fact that the sign indicates 12:00 as closing time, it was fitted out with tables and chairs but it still did not operate as a restaurant. Since early 2012 a second take-away has been operating from this premises. Again we contacted Enforcement to investigated because they were not operating with in the guidelines of the planning requirements. The latest development is that retention has been sought to allow for both of the take-always.
If you wish to send an o observation to The Planning Department in Dublin City Council: 
Ref: Application no. 2015/13
Fee: €20.00
Closing date : 6th February 2013

Improve Fairview Park

posted 16 Apr 2010, 08:37 by Eoin Kilfeather   [ updated 28 Feb 2016, 05:55 ]

Meeting: Wednesday April 21st at 7pm in Marino College

Dublin City Council Parks & Landscape Services Division are planning some proposed improvements  to Fairview Park.

This will include a newly designed high quality playground, upgrading of the seasonal bedding areas and include a newly designed outdoor performance area with some public seating. We are about to start the public engagement phase which will take place during the month of April 2010. As part of this, a temporary sign will be erected in the location of the playground highlighting the new playground and seating area and the website will be regularly updated as the project progresses, and also keep an eye out for the local newspapers and notice boards in the neighbourhood. Initial layouts have been drafted at this stage and background research ranging from the feasibility of the feature bandstand to current play design ideas including the promoting the value of active recreation is being carried out by the Parks and Landscape Services Division.

It is intended that these improvements will form quite a significant modification to the park, creating an interesting focal point, and an exciting addition to Fairview Park.

Parks and Landscape Services Division welcome all thoughts, suggestions and comments in relation to the proposed improvements and are planning an open day in the Park, an evening meeting and hope to work with a couple of local schools in the coming weeks.
