Revised plan for Airport hotel

Revised plans have been submitted for a new 10-storey, 421-bedroom hotel  near Dublin Airpor


The company that made the planning application, Carra Shore (Dublin), secured planning permission from Fingal County Council for a 427-bedroom hotel on the site last April. It would have been one of the largest hotels in the country.
But in October, An Bord Pleanála refused to sanction the development.
It upheld the appeals of several local residents, who had claimed that the proposal would have a 
negative impact on existing residential amenities in the area and would result in a loss of privacy.
The planned 10-storey building consisted of 317 bedrooms and 110 suites and included leisure facilities, meeting and conference rooms.
The company behind the plan is owned by Jalaluddin Kajani and other family members. They also
 own upmarket boutique hotels in London and a hotel in Ireland. Mr Kajani moved to Ireland from Pakistan in 1980.
The company is now seeking revisions to an existing planning permission, first obtained in 2008, for a 325-bedroom hotel on the site. It wants to increase the number of bedrooms allowed under that permission to 421.
