RETENTION: Planning permission for development and for retention permission for development at this site known as Dakota Bar and Grill, 8/9 South William Street and 39/40 Drury Street, as well as the premises formerly known as Fashion Fair, also at 39/40 Drury Street, Dublin 2. The proposed development will consist of a change of use at first floor level of 39/40 Drury Street from wholesale fashion warehouse to licenced bar and restaurant; change of use at first floor level of 8/9 South William Street from offices to licenced bar and restaurant; a connecting outdoor terrace/licenced dining area at first floor level between 39/40 Drury Street and 8/9 South William Street (including an enclosed food hoist area linked to the kitchen at basement level); the change of use at second floor level of 39/40 Drury Street from wholesale fashion warehouse to toilets and ancillary office space to serve the first floor licenced bar and restaurant; and all associated site works and services. The new outdoor terrace/ licenced dining area on the first floor will be partially covered with a glazed canopy and will have a new 3.5 metre high wall within its northern boundary similar to the existing wall on its southern boundary. The main entrance to the first floor licenced bar and restaurant will be from 39/40 Drury Street (through the former Fashion Fair stairs and elevator lobby, formerly known as 40 Drury Street) with associated internal revisions (including levels and layout) and related external revisions to the ground floor shop front and signage of 39/40 Drury Street. Separate complementary revisions are also proposed to the adjacent shop front, signage and entrance into 39/40 Drury Street (Dakota Bar and Grill, formerly known as 39 Drury Street) and amendments to windows at first and second floor levels on Drury Street. A new fire access stairs from ground floor/street level on 8/9 South William Street to first floor, with an enclosed access area onto the first floor terrace, all part of the associated site works and services, will require the reopening of an original main entrance to 8/9 South William Street (previously blocked up) for use as a fire access door onto the street. This new access door at 8/9 South William Street will also serve as the disabled access to Dakota Bar and Grill and to the proposed first floor licenced bar and restaurant, via a new disabled access ramp on the ground floor through to the disabled access lift/ elevator lobby located in 39/40 Drury Street. Associated internal modifications will also include the relocation of the main basement to ground floor stairs to facilitate the new disabled access ramp on the ground floor. The development separately proposed for retention consists of an outdoor seating area at street level in front of 8/9 South William Street serving the existing ground floor licenced bar and restaurant. A 3-year retention permission for a seating area in the same location was granted on 22nd October 2008 (Reg. Ref 3741/08). This application seeks permanent retention permission for the same seating area, now to include 4 tables and 12 chairs surrounded by 1.5 metre high wind breakers (of glass and solid panels) in selected colour and a planter, and that this outdoor seating area may remain in use during the business hours of the licenced premises.
