L/H 4 Land to the rear of Allengrove (off Lake Street) (2.21 hectares)
Key site requirements:
  • the results of a comprehensive survey, identifying trees, hedgerows and other vegetation to be retained and incorporated into the proposed development, shall be submitted with a planning application for full or outline permission;
  • a detailed planting plan for the proposed development shall be submitted with a planning application for full or outline permission. The existing vegetation on all boundaries shall be retained and supplemented by the planting of trees and bushes of appropriate species to provide screening for the development and facilitate its integration into the landscape setting; and
  • the development shall be accessed onto Allengrove to the southeast (maximum number 17 houses) and/or onto Ashgrove Drive (maximum number 20 houses). If a greater number of houses is proposed off either access then this will require improvements at the junctions with Lake Street. A right turning lane may be required at the Allenhill Park/Lake Street junction and third party land will be required to accommodate this. Appropriate access standards with regard to visibility splays and forward visibility shall be provided.
The developer should note that pumping of foul sewage will be required for part of the site. In addition, the site is traversed by an existing foul sewer. No building will be permitted over, or within 6 metres either side of, this sewer.
L/H 5 Land east of Lake Street (2.91 hectares)
Key site requirements:
  • the results of a comprehensive survey, identifying trees, hedgerows and other vegetation tobe retained and incorporated into the proposed development, shall be submitted with a planning application for full or outline permission;
  • a detailed planting plan for the proposed development shall be submitted with a planning application for full or outline permission. The existing trees and mature hedging within the site and on the boundaries shall be retained where possible and supplemented by the planting of trees and bushes of appropriate species to provide screening for the development and facilitate its integration into the landscape setting. The north north eastern boundaries, in particular, should be planted with appropriate species to ensure a definite natural boundary between the residential area and open countryside;
  • the layout of the proposal and the type of housing proposed should respect the topography of the site and, in particular, the crest line in the centre of the site; and
  • the development shall be accessed onto Lake Street. This will require a footway link along Lake Street to Tannaghmore Primary School to the south. A right turning lane may be required, subject to the scale and layout of the proposed development. Third party land may be required to accommodate this access. Appropriate access standards with regard to access stagger, visibility splays and forward visibility should be provided. Direct access, including for individual dwellings, will not be permitted onto Lake Street.
The developer should note that pumping of foul sewage will be required for the southern part of the site.
L/H 6 Lands north of North Circular Road (16.17 hectares)
Key site requirements:
  • the results of a comprehensive survey, identifying trees, hedgerows and other vegetation to be retained and incorporated into the proposed development, shall be submitted with a planning application for full or outline permission;
  • a detailed planting plan for the proposed development shall be submitted with a planning application for full or outline permission. The existing vegetation within the site and on the boundaries shall be retained and incorporated into the proposed development. The existing vegetation on the site shall be supplemented by the planting of appropriate species to provide landscape definition between the development and countryside, screening for the development and to break up the housing mass and reduce the visual impact of the development. The vegetation along the northwestern boundary, in particular, should be supplemented with similar species to ensure a definite natural boundary between the residential area and the open countryside;
  • a landscape management plan for a 20 year period from completion of planting shall be submitted with the detailed planting plan;
  • the layout of the proposal and the type of housing proposed should respect the topography of the site. The layout shall be designed to ensure that no houses back onto North Circular Road and Tarry Lane;
  • buffer planting, to include a pedestrian and cycle route of between 8 and 10 metres in depth, along the boundary of the link road to the school, will be required to provide a defined landscape boundary between the development and the countryside.
  • the housing layout will be served off the proposed spine road in accordance with Planning Policy Statement 7;
  • appropriate access must be maintained to existing properties on Tarry Lane ;
  • a Traffic Impact Assessment will be required;
  • footway links/cycle ways will be required from within the development to the junction of North Circular Road/Tarry Lane linking into the existing footway network. A footway link will be required along the eastern side of North Circular Road to link with the existing footway at the Levin Road/North Circular Road junction; and
  • the main access to the development will run onto North Circular Road through an improved Tarry Lane/North Circular Road junction and Tarry Lane itself (a right turning lane will be required).
The developer should note that pumping will be required to access the existing foul sewer and also, in order to accommodate increased loadings, upgrading will be required. There are no public surface water sewers available to serve this site. Surface water may be discharged into a watercourse traversing the site, subject to consent. It is considered unlikely that the site will be affected by significant flooding from any watercourse with the exception of low-lying land adjacent to the open channels of the watercourses, where marginal flooding may occur.
