Property developer Michael O'Flynn challenges planning permission refusal for €75m residential development

O'Flynn Capital Partners (OFCP), whose founder is Mr O'Flynn, have sought a judicial review of Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Co Council's July 31 refusal for 164 residential units at Beech Park, Bray Road, Cabinteely/Loughlinstown.  
The plan involves the demolition of 11 existing dwellings and the construction of a 158 metre section of the Druid's Glen Road linking to the N11 road.  It also involves the provision of up to 30 metres of the Druid's Glen Road Bridge.
The potential sales value of the developed land should well exceed €75m, Mr O'Flynn says.  It will also create around 100 full time construction jobs.  The land was acquired for more than €12m.
Planners refused permission for a number of reasons including that the development failed to provide a "high quality site-specific design response for the site" in relation to layout, ecology and landscape design.
