Full Description


Description and Planning 

These lands are of interest to builders and developers seeking to buy a well located parcel suited to development in the short to medium term (subject to a grant of planning permission).  The lands of 3.5 Ha (8.65 acres) are well located on Hearse Road at Corballis East close to the Village and to Donabate train station, and immediately to the south of Donabate Village and zoned Objective RA Phase 2 within the Donabate Local Area Plan for residential development 2016-2022.  The Local Area Plan was amended in 2016 and the lands are suited to a density of approx. 8.1 houses per acre (subject to planning). The planned future waste water pant and treatment facilities will enable development to take place and the new distributor road is under construction.  

Overall the LAP lands at Corballis have the potential to provide approximately 1,850 units based on a density of 35 units per hectare and taking into account the land-take for the DDR; the lands excluded from the development areas which are outside of the DDR alignment; and those that are unsuitable for development based on the findings in the SFRA. Family homes will be the primary housing form, whilst apartments and other multi-occupancy units will be encouraged on the lands closest to the Village and at other appropriate locations. Approach to Donabate Village along Hearse Road Development along the Hearse Road on the approach to Donabate Village will need to be carefully considered to protect the existing character of this ‘gateway’ to the urban area. The LAP recognises the importance of the approach vista to Donabate Village and seeks to ensure that any new development along the southern side of Hearse Road (Corballis lands) takes Newbridge Demesne into consideration. It is an objective of this LAP to protect views along Hearse Road and to retain the mature trees which are located along the Newbridge Demesne boundary / approach road to the village.

The Phase 2 Corballis lands situated west of the railway line (Corballis West) comprising approx. 7.5 ha (18.5 acres) will be developed with access directly from Hearse Road (150 dwellings or 8.1 dwellings per acre) in Phase 2. These lands will be developed as a natural extension to the initial Phase 1 development of 300 units. Strong pedestrian and cycle links to Donabate Village and to Newbridge Demesne will be required.
