South Dublin County Council has agreed to inspect apartments at former Liffey Valley Fitness on Coldcut Road in Clondalkin, following a suspected breach of planning compliance. A motion was passed at the recent Clondalkin Area Committee to write a letter to the owner of the site and the letting agent expressing concern with planning compliance at the site. The motion also called on SDCC to inspect the site which has been agreed.

Cllr Madeleine Johansson said: “I have expressed concern regarding this site on a number of occasions and I am happy to hear that South Dublin County Council will inspect the site as a matter of priority. On the other hand, it is very disappointing that no decision has been made by An Bord PlĂ©anala on the appeal despite the fact that a decision was due on the 24th January. “I have also asked for the site to be inspected for fire safety, as I was contacted by someone anonymously who raised concern that fire safety measures were not in line with regulation.

“Tenants have already begun to move in to these units and it is extremely disappointing that any developer or landlord would act in a way that may put their tenants at risk.”
