Fresh proposals have been unveiled to develop around 560 homes on the former Bray Golf Club lands.

Ballymore Group subsidiary Shankill Property Investments Limited have applied for a pre-application consultation with An Bord Pleanala in relation to a proposed strategic housing development (SHD) on the site.

The SHD process allows developers to bypass the local authority and apply directly to An Bord Pleanala for developments in excess of 100 units. The consultation is the first stage of the SHD process, after which the Bord will issue an opinion on whether the documents submitted form a reasonable basis for an application.

The proposal includes 564 residential units made up of 96 houses and 468 apartments, a creche and associated site works.

The Bord is expected to issue its opinion by February 28, 2022.

The Bord gave a partial go-ahead to proposals for 591 residential units on a site on the former golf club lands. This application included 515 apartments and 76 houses, and a creche on the site that straddled the Wicklow-Dun Laoghaire- Rathdown county line. However, the Bord did not give the go-ahead to two apartment blocks, containing a total of 357 units.

The Bord refused permission for the two apartment blocks due to concerns about their design and location.
