DEVELOPER BRYAN Cullen's plans to add five apartments to an approved scheme at Sandymount have been rejected by An Bord Pleanála.
Cullen, with permission for 27 apartments and 12 houses at Sandymount Castle Park and Gilford Road, D4, wants to add a fifth level to one block with four penthouses and add an extra apartment to the fourth floor.
Sandymount and Merrion Residents Association appealed permission granted by Dublin City Council for the extra units. They are concerned the application is "an attempt to bypass all the conditions of the previous application". The board said that the height and traffic generating movements would be excessive and result in overdevelopment of the site.
