    Zoning/Planning Permission

    The property is situated in an area zoned “mixed use development” in the Cork City Development Plan 2015 – 2021.  The range of permissible uses within this zone includes general offices, conference centre, third level education, hospital, hotel, commercial leisure, cultural, residential, public institutions, childcare services, business and technology/research uses. The property is included within precinct 12 Monahan Road West as outlined in the South Docks Local Area Plan 2008. Indicative building heights outlined in the local area plan indicate potential to develop buildings from four storey up to six storey.

    Cork City Council previously decided to grant planning permission in 2006 (File Ref 0530018) for a high density mixed use development which included 95 No apartments, 5 No townhouses, 3,067 sq m (33,013 sq ft) of business and technology space.  The proposed development was in five main blocks ranging in height from four to six storeys. An Bord Pleanala subsequently refused planning permission following a third party appeal (PL28.217666).
