Up to 20 families face homelessness over planning dispute
Up to 20 families in an apartment block in Clondalkin, Dublin face homelessness in less than a month as their housing support payments have been stopped amid planning concerns. South Dublin County Council has confirmed it has suspended paying Housing Assistance Payment (Hap) to tenants at Larkfield House, Coldcut Road, as it awaits a decision from An Bord Pleanála as to whether they comply with planning. This follows an inspection of the building earlier this month.Permission was initially granted by the council for 27 apartments at the site of the former Liffey Valley Fitness premises, in September 2016. It appears, however, that more than 45 apartments were built.
