Dublin City Council has confirmed to me that CLUIDS planning application for senior citizen housing on the grounds of The most precious blood church has yet to receive funding from the department of the Environment.
The planning application was submitted to Dublin City Council on the 17th December last and a decision expected in February. Once Cluid receive planning, the scheme will then progress to the next stage i.e. detailed design and then tender stage. Following tender stage, they will then seek funding for the scheme from the Department of the Enviroment and their funding institute based on tender cost returns. Therefore there is no funding approved for the scheme at this stage.
This is not the first proposal I have seen for this site but I will do all I can to ensure this proposal becomes a reality. Mary
