The Board of Twinlite wish to make the following statement on the withdrawal of the judicial review proceedings.

Today, December 11th, 2018, Judicial Review proceedings against the decision of An Bord Pleanála to grant permission for 49 apartments at our site at Castlepark Road, Dalkey was withdrawn by the applicants on the first day of the hearing.  Twinlite will make a contribution to part of the legal costs of the applicants.  Commenting on the events, Rick Larkin, Executive Director at Twinlite said;

“We’re obviously happy that this action has been withdrawn.  We always believed that our design for the site was very sympathetic to the existing landscape and surrounding area and we look forward to helping deliver housing to a market which remains in a supply-side crisis”

Background on Castlepark Road site

Twinlite acquired the Castlepark Road site in December 2016 and lodged a planning application for 50 apartments in June 2017 which was refused by Dun Laoghaire County Council in August 2017.  An appeal by Twinlite was lodged on September 6th, 2017 by Twinlite to An Bord Pleanála who made a decision to grant permission, with conditions, on April 26th, 2018.

The design consists of 49 high quality large apartments in a secluded woodland adjacent to the Castlepark school.  The majority of the site will remain undeveloped, with most of the existing vegetation north of the building being retained.  Further information can be found at
