2 Tubbs St, Clontarf

The Planning Place obtained approval to amend an existing Development Approval for Material Change of Use for Warehouse on a site at 2 Tubbs Street, Clontarf.  The change application sought to include an additional land use activity for Low impact industry. Given the proposed request to change the approval to include an additional land use not included as part of the original application, the proposal was not considered to be a minor change under section 81 of the Planning Act 2016. As such, the application process required making a ‘Other Change’ under Section 82 of the Planning Act 2016. The development approval (Application Number: DA/38760/2019/VCHG/1) now provides for use of the site for a Warehouse or a Low impact industry, thereby giving the landowner this flexibility.
