Refusal for 420 homes at racecourse

REGENTS Park Developments has been refused planning permission for over 420 homes and six retail units as part of the fifth phase of Stapolin Village on the former racecourse lands in Baldoyle, Co Dublin.

Seán Mulryan's Helsingor has already secured permission for the first four phases of the six-phase development which is expected to comprise 2,600 units when finished. But An Bord Pleanála told Regents Park Developments that the scale and height of the development would be out of keeping with the emerging pattern in the overall development and wouldn't "provide a residential environment of appropriate amenity levels".

The directors of Regents Park Developments are in the same family as businessman Jim Kennedy. He hit the headlines some years ago when the Mahon Tribunal and the Criminal Assets Bureau sought to interview him in relation to land in Leopardstown, owned by Jackson Way.
