Stillorgan-Rathfarnham RFC - Development of Heavey Technology Park - News - Winter 2017...

Club Chairman Maurice Ryan provides an update of progress on the development of Heavey Technology Park - the new home of Stillorgan-Rathfarnham RFC at Tibradden Road, Rathfarnham. 

** 22 November update: We received news earlier this week from Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Council, who expressed their intention to grant full planning permission for our application (as outlined below). We now enter the standard 4 week period for observations to An Bord Pleanála from third parties. We are hopeful of a positive outcome in this regard, and will continue to keep members, supporters and friends updated via this page. Scroll down for general information about the development **.

Dear Members, Supporters and Friends,

I would like to give you an update on progress on our planning application for building playing facilities at our grounds at Tibradden Road, Rathfarnham.

Following the submission of our planning application back in late 2016, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council came back in February 2017, with the planning authorities requesting further information on 15 points relating to the initial application. The Further Information Request related to items such as ecology, wildlife, landscape architecture, road and entrance design, arborist assessments of the existing trees on site, and additional information on the proposed development. The list of additional information was very detailed, but crucially the planners stated in the planning report that they accepted the proposal in principle.

Buoyed by the response from the council, the club have worked with several specialist consultants to reply to the Further Information Request, with detailed assessments and studies carried out in order to respond with the necessary information. We submitted our response to the Further Information Request in late October and we are expecting a planning decision in the coming weeks.

In addition to the planning application, over the past 12 months the committee have applied for a €150,000 Capital Sports grant to fund the development. We have also successfully registered our 20 year lease, and as communicated previously, the club have a buyout option through this lease that the club will enact once the club has built a playing pitch on the grounds.

I hope to be contacting you all again in the coming weeks with a positive response from the DLR Planning Authorities. So fingers crossed for the next couple of weeks!!

With this in mind, I would ask that all members make that extra effort with the current IRFU Grand Draw. This is a super fundraising arrangement as any money raised goes directly to the club, and will ensure that we can kick onto the next stage of developing our long term home at Heavey Technology Park on Tibradden Road.

For the Parish,

Maurice Ryan
