Description

The development required an increase in part of the Eccles Street (south) elevation of the Hospital by one storey to provide six storeys to correspond with the height of the existing west wing, with the provision of extensions to existing floors resulting in an increase to part of the Eccles Place (north) elevation by one to three storeys to provide a maximum of five storeys plus rooftop plant. Other ancillary alterations to the hospital was also proposed.

Our Role

Tom Phillips + Associates (TPA) provided strategic planning advice to the Applicant and Design Team, and served as the Agent for the Planning Application and subsequent Appeal stages. TPA prepared and co-ordinated a detailed Planning and Environmental Report and prepared appeal responses, where relevant.

Planning Outcome

Dublin City Council issued a Notification of Decision to Grant Permission for the scheme on 22nd September 2011. Following the lodgement of a Third Party Appeal and the making of a comprehensive response by TPA, the Board granted permission for the development on 10th April 2012.

A subsequent application to amend the permission was lodged and consequently granted by Dublin City Council on 23rd September 2013.
