Nine storeys: A rendering of the proposed new block at Hampton Wood

An Bord Pleanála has granted planning permission to 129 apartments in north Dublin - in spite of opposition from Social Democrat joint leader, Róisín Shortall and local residents.

The appeals board granted planning permission to Dublin builders, Dywer Nolan Developments for the expansion of the Hampton Wood development. It will comprise five apartment blocks including one reaching to nine storeys.

The development is located  north of the Poppintree industrial estate and a short distance from IKEA's flagship store.

Deputy Shortall had backed community objections claiming the nine-storey block would cast "a lasting shadow over the area" if allowed to proceed.
