Re: Submission in respect of planning application for new National Paediatric


Hospital in St. James's Hospital Kilmainham (Board Ref: 29N.P A0043)
To whom it may concern,
Myself, my wife {Mary Martin) and our young family live at 634 South Circular Rd. in
Kilmainham, which is in close proximity to the proposed site for the new National
Children's Hospital. We would like to make the following observations in respect of the
planning application for consideration by the Board:

In the current Dublin City Development Plan our section of South Circular Rd. is
zoned Z2 - to protect and/or improve the amenities of residential conservation
areas. Is the Board satisfied that the proposed development is consistent with this
zoning? I would question whether the scale of the development and the proposed
access at the end of our road achieves any improvement of our neighbourhood. The
increased level of traffic both during and after construction will put significant
pressure on the local infrastructure which will adversely impact the residential
amenity in the area. We note that a valuable opportunity to open up the streetscape
at the end of the road has been lost with the proposed wall and below street level
floors of the buildings along SCR. The development does not provide any
enhanced public spaces or facilities for local amenity and puts added pressure on
existing public transport. The development will no doubt reduce the value of our
houses and will increase pressure on people to move away from the area with
potential for significant development of private clinics along our road - similar to
Eccles St. just at a time when a number of young families have moved into the area.

Notwithstanding that there is a current proposal to relocate the Coombe Hospital to


St. James's hospital, has due consideration been given to locating the hospital on
the vacant lands adjacent to the current location of the Coombe Hospital, which is
still in close proximity to St. James's and the public transport infrastructure. A
decision to locate the NCH to this site could promote co-location of a new
maternity hospital at the same site. The Coombe Hospital is located along one of
the main city radial access routes which has been improved in recent years, unlike
the local road infrastructure around Kilmainham, which is at the convergence of the
N4 and N7 National Primary Routes.

We are very concerned with the potential for increased traffic along our street and
with the pressure that the proposed development will put on parking in the area.
We rely on street parking and east of access is an important amenity as a residential
community.

Directors: E R Farrell, BA, BAI, MS, PhD, CEng, FIEI, FGS, EurEng; C O'Donnell, BA, BAI, MS, MIEI.
Advanced Geotechnics Ltd. CRO No. 333906

Is the board satisfied that the traffic surveys that have been carried out reasonably
represent the proposed increase in traffic and resulting potential for congestion in
the area, particularly at rush hour? Currently there is significant congestion on the
street. There are regular tail backs along the full length of SCR from Kilmainham
Village to St. James' s Hospital, particularly travelling west towards the village at
evening rush hour. The junction on Con Col bart Rd. is a well-known bottlekneck,
as is Inchicore Village from the N7. We are at the convergence with the N4 and the
N7, two of the busiest national primary routes in the country.

Have the traffic surveys been carried out at a representative time of year particularly during school tenn, at rush hour and in the winter months when traffic
is at a peak? Traffic surveys during the summer within the period of economic
downturn would not be representative.

Has the potential impact of improved economic conditions been properly assessed
in assessing traffic?

We would strenuously object to permitting construction traffic in and out of the


area during peak rush hour periods of7:30-9:00 am, and 5:30 - 7:30 pm. We
assume that construction traffic at night (>7:30pm) and weekends will not be
pennitted.

We would ask the Board to particularly give consideration to the potential impact of
the development on parking in the area, i.e.:
o

Is there sufficient on-site parking for the proposed development so that it


does not force cars onto our street?

What is being done to prevent parking on our street at evenings and


weekends?

Are the targets for employee commuting by public transport, on foot or by


bicycle realistic? 27%? How does this compare to other hospitals with
access to public transport?

If our concerns about parking have not been addressed adequately in the planning
application then we strenuously object to the proposed development. It is a
significant amenity to the residential area and there is no off-street parking on SCR.

Has due consideration been given to the compounding impact that the proposed
development will have when considered in conjunction with the new Mercer
Institute for Successful Aging and the proposal to co-locate the maternity hospital
on the site? Are the applicants aware of any other developments on the site?

If our observations have not been adequately addressed in the proposed planning
application then we would urge the Board to reject the application or stipulate appropriate
conditions that would mitigate our concerns.
