That's with ABP, hopefully it'll go ahead.

Yeah, something is going to have to give with traffic in that area. With yesterday's heavy rain, residents of Woodstown were reporting that it took them 45 minutes just to get out of their estate. I can't imagine what kind of pain people further up the road had to deal with.

I had made a suggestion for the local area plan that there needs to be a footbridge/cycle bridge across the M50 from Knocklyon Park to Orlagh Grove. This would massively cut down on congestion - most people from this area drive their kids to school because the walk is 20 minutes on a good day. If there was a direct walking/cycling route, many people would go with that rather than sit in traffic for half an hour every day.

Never heard anything back on the suggestion though :/
For the most part developers are building in accordance with the Local Area Plan. It's hard to refuse permission when they're providing what you asked for. We have an issue at the high level planning stage where infrastructure is being planned, by the time we get to individual estates it's too late.

If it's the field, I don't think it would be feasible. The only place I can think of that would connect to is the field in Orlagh in between Orlagh Lawn and Orlagh Crescent and no one would be happy with it there. They'd have to knock down all the trees and most likely pave over a good bit of the field to make a path. It would ruin the place.
Knocklyon Park, the field area between Woodstown and the M50.

But linked to Orlagh Grove alright, as attached. Much like the footbridge at Castlefield.

This would provide much faster pedestrian and bicycle access across the M50 for the residents of Woodstown and Stocking Avenue.

We call it the field with the big rock

I do get your point, but it wouldn't work in Orlagh, it would destroy the field area which is used by the residents and cause chaos in the estate. There is no cycling infrastructure in the estate and nowhere to place it as most of the roads are on street parking so a bicycle lane would be blocked up.

With the amount of very young children that play in the estate, I doubt the residents association would allow it to go ahead.

I'm pretty sure this estate and Ballycullen Green will be the last ones developed for a while as per the Ballycullen/Oldcourt development plan. Still no sign of either of the planned schools or shopping center being started though.

Does anyone have any further info about the pricing and phase releases for these?

We were told in December €415,000 was only for the north facing 3 bedroom mid terraces and have been advised that the west facing 3 bedroom mid terraces will be from €430,000. Seems quite pricey. I wouldn’t be surprised if the 4 beds will go about €500k.

From reading the development plan from the SD county council website, 174 houses in total and a large two storey crèche.

No word on if the community centre and shops are still going ahead opposite the road on Stocking Avenue.

Yeah, I was told the same thing happened on the Abbotts Grove and Scholarstown Woods Developments. There is a halting site on Stocking Avenue, and the travellers are supposedly stealing equipment from the sites.

There were boilers ripped out of finished houses in Scholarstown Wood as well before people moved into them.

Anyone slightly concerned about the proximity to the M50 and pollutants/noise? From the sitemap, it looks as though some of the homes might be less than 30m from the road.

Interesting article in Lovin Dublin with no mention of anything untoward.
