Dublin’s Harcourt Terrace National School gets the go-ahead

Harcourt Terrace National School in central Dublin has secured planning permission from An Bord Pleanala, the Irish planning appeals board, and is set to proceed towards construction in 2019.

The innovative new-generation urban development will provide much-needed education facilities for 700 pupils in the city centre and will be administered by Educate Together. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of Dublin’s historic Victorian Quarter, the main planning concerns have centred on the increased traffic generated in the early morning and mid-afternoon by the student body attending the school.

With ambitious sustainable travel targets in mind, our team’s strategy addressed the traffic concerns by presenting innovative ways of accessing the school. In place of car-parking facilities for staff or parents with designated set-down zones, the scheme will utilise park & stride systems along with on-site bike and scooter parking, all controlled by a Mobility Manager. This approach won the day, with the Board approving the application with no further conditions.
