Wednesday, January 20, 2016


QUESTION: Councillor F. Timmons

“To ask the Chief Executive for a report on part 8 approved sites in Clondalkin area – what is the delay in building the houses? and when is it thought they may be built?”


There are three projects in total which has been Part 8 approved by Council in the Clondalkin area.

Two of these projects, listed below, are currently awaiting pre-tender budget approval from the Department of Environment. The Office of Government Procurement is establishing a new framework for consultants which South Dublin Co. Co. have applied to use. This framework is expected to be available in first quarter of 2016 and it is intended to go to tender with the following projects once the framework is declared active:

Development Location No. of Units
St. Marks Green, Clondalkin 11
Mayfield, Clondalkin 18
Total no. of Units 29

The Part 8 project at Letts Field, Clondalkin which was approved by Council in September 2015 is awaiting DECLG budget approval. The full cost plan and project details were submitted to DECLG in November 2015 and it is anticipated to receive pre-tender approval in the first quarter of 2016.

Scheme Name (Location Address) Approved by Council Current Stage
Letts Field, Clondalkin 37 Yes, September 2015 Full Cost plan submitted to DECLG – awaiting Pre-Tender Approval

We are unable to confirm completion dates on the above Part 8 projects. As these projects are included in our Housing Strategy 2015-2017 programme the delivery of these housing units will come on stream over the next two to three years.

The Part 8 programme will continue to progress on an incremental basis throughout the county.

A further development in Clondalkin is currently at planning permission stage as proposed by Tuath Housing Association. This development has been approved in principle for funding by the DECLG under Capital Assistance Scheme and if planning permission is granted the development will deliver a four bedroom house on Collinstown Grove, Clondalkin for the purpose of social housing provision to meet those with specific medical needs.
