The judgment in Monkstown Road Residents’ Association & Ors v An Bord Pleanála & Ors [2022] IEHC 318 was delivered in respect of a claim to quash the decision of An Bord Pleanála (the Board) to grant planning permission for a strategic housing development in Monkstown. The Court ruled in favour of the Residents’ Association as it found that the Board erroneously relied on SPPR1 of the Height Guidelines and failed to give reasons for its EIA Screening decision as to the insignificance of the effect of the proposed development on Cultural Heritage.
