Appeals Against Plans For Two New Dublin Hotels Lodged With An Bord Pleanála

Appeals against plans for two new Dublin hotels have been lodged with An Bord Pleanála.

CitizenM Plan

As reported by The Irish Independent, a plan by a unit of Dutch hotel company CitizenM to construct a 247-bedroom hotel on a site fronting the capital’s Bridge Street, close to St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which was approved by Dublin City Council in January, was the subject of a significant number of objections.

CitizenM was asked to provide additional information about the proposed development and to address several concerns raised by Dublin City Council about its likely impact on surrounding residential properties.

The council deemed subsequent amendments acceptable.

However, a number of appeals against the council’s decision to green light the development have now been lodged with An Bord Pleanála, and a decision on the matter is due to be delivered by mid-June.

The site of the proposed hotel is currently occupied by an industrial warehouse that was previously a part of Jacob’s biscuit factory, and Molyneux House, which comprises the converted and extended 19th century Molyneux Church.

Cathedral Lane Plan

Meanwhile, Dublin City Council’s decision to approve a plan by Cathedral Lane, which is part of Northern Irish hotel group Beannchor, to develop a 98-bedroom, eight storey hotel on the site of the former Boland’s bakery off of the capital’s Capel Street has also been appealed to An Bord Pleanála.
