Dunnes Stores resubmits plans to redevelop Crumlin Shopping Centre



Dunnes Stores has resubmitted plans to revamp Crumlin Shopping Centre.

The shopping centre, which opened in 1974, has lain derelict for years, with only Dunnes Stores operating on site. Sinn Fein councillor Daithi Doolan said the shopping centre has been “in decline for too long and becoming a sorry sight”.

Cllr Doolan told the Irish Independent: “It is essential that the original concerns are honestly addressed and that future plans benefit the wider community. I would strongly encourage the developers to fully engage with local residents and community groups to ensure people’s concerns are listened to and addressed.”

There are currently 503 parking spaces on site. The National Transport Authority had raised fears of “over-provision” of car parking in the proposal and had asked DCC to secure a “less car-orientated development”.

Dunnes Stores is still appealing for 400 parking spots in the resubmitted plans. Other proposals include 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.
