Cork Street residents don't want chipper to open beneath their apartment block

RESIDENTS in a Cork Street apartment block have lodged objections to plans for a new takeaway on their ground floor.

Planning permission has been lodged with Dublin City Council to seek a change of use for the unit underneath the apartments.

However, concerned residents say the business could end up devaluing their apartments. In submissions lodged to the council, tenants fear the building will become a hive of late-night activity due to the proposed opening hours.

Some worried that anti-social behaviour would ensue or that people could gain access to their apartment block.

Another resident pointed out that the area had enough take-aways.

A decision has not yet been made on the application.
