Glanmire/Riverstown is already a disaster at rush hour. I can only imagine what this will do. Anyone that buys in there is off their nut.
Thanks Simon

You need density to get public transport.

2 cars per household. 500 houses 1000 cars. That side of ballincollig has no bus service. There are new estates in place already and another being built. No public transport, just more cars and pollution!!

The point is the more people who live there, the more likely they are to get a good bus service. Density of population drives public transport. The bus services will follow.

A ROW has developed between event centre developer Bam and Cork City Council over who should pay costs toward a new pedestrian bridge.

A planning condition attached to permission granted for the revised plans for the event centre includes development contributions of €1.68 million — roughly 25% of total costs — to be paid for two bridges needed to service the site and connect to Crosse’s Green and French’s Quay.

However, Bam has appealed this condition to An Bord Pleanála. They said the Crosse’s Green pedestrian and cycle bridge has long been part of the city council’s development plan. They have not queried the development contributions for the pedestrian crossing to French’s Quay.

However, City Hall planners have argued in their response that the development contributions were built into a previous planning application from 2011 and a new city development plan has been devised since.

The council response said: “An Bord Pleanála will be aware that planning permission was granted on December 23, 2011, for a major mixed-use development — including an event centre — on the larger development site at the former Beamish and Crawford site at South Main Street, Crosse’s Green and French’s Quay, Cork.

“The description of this development included the construction of two pedestrian bridges across the south channel of the River Lee linking the brewery site to Crosse’s Green and French’s Quay/Proby’s Quay.”

City Hall planners also noted that the city development plan states that Cork City Council “will work closely” with key agencies and private developers to help realise these projects as “speedily as possible” and that the current city development plan was written after the original application for the event centre was granted permission.

The response further states: “The matter has been clear since the granting of the governing permission that these bridges and associated public realm improvement works would be subject to special development contributions.

“Attaching a special contribution condition is consistent with the approach taken by An Bord Pleanála.”

I think Flynn is building another lash of apartments behind Dunnes in Ballincollig, next to the pharmacy. Hopefully after x% go to social housing the rest will be owner occupied, like the ones in the Quadrants across the road. Oh, wait a minute🙄

€20 million for a site for 500 houses. That works out at €40,000 per house. Throw in LA levies and connection charges by various service providers - Irish Water (water & sewage) Gas company, ESB, Eir (or whoever). Add in legal services and you are probably looking at €100,000 per house, before a foundation is laid.

Bear in mind that the builder will be doing 90% of the work in the provision of these services.

The state agencies will earn a nice bit from the house purchasers.

Great to see a big lash of social housing being developed. Nice A rated properties. Pity working couples will be exempted from a chance to move into these properties. They have to take their chances in the open market or forever be at the mercy of the landlord😳
