Crumlin Shopping Centre redevelopment moves step closer as plans approved



The redevelopment of the Crumlin Shopping Centre has moved a huge step closer to become a reality.

Dublin City Council has decided to grant permission for the development which will transform the primarily empty building. The decision was posted on April 9 but documents on the decision are not yet publicly available online through the council’s planning portal.

Applicants Dunnes Stores, who own the centre building, are planning to use the space for the construction of a shopping centre, including an off-licence, two retail concession stalls, a cafe, and an online grocery pick-up room. They are also hoping to create 267 bicycle parking spaces, 20 motorcycle parking spaces, 80 electric vehicle charging spaces, family car parking spaces, click-and-collect spaces, and wheelchair-accessible spaces.

The proposed redevelopment has the potential to create 150 to 200 jobs during the construction phase and an additional 450 jobs after it opens. Further details about the guidelines the development must follow are expected to be posted by Dublin City Council in the coming days.

A number of observations about the revised plans were submitted ahead of the deadline. One raised concerns about the food market proposed for the centre and the number of fast food and unhealthy takeaway locations in Crumlin.

Another observation highlighted concerns residents living beside the centre have regarding privacy and the impact the development will have on their homes. This includes the construction phase and after the new building is completed.
