The proposal consists of the enlargement of the existing elderly nursing care facility known as Beneavin Lodge by the addition of three storeys of specialist care residential accommodation to the east of the site. As part of the enlargement it is proposed to make very minor alterations to the existing Dementia Wing PLRef2454/15). The proposed new unit will be located to the south of the existing dementia wing currently under construction and is designed to fully comply with the latest nursing home care standards as set out under HIQA accommodation guidelines and the requirements of the Disability Access Legislation. The accommodation will comprise the following elements at ground floor level, with access from the existing building entrance to the east of the site, will be the Rehabilitation unit with large bedroom/ lounge/ ensuite provision, Hydrotherapy and Physiotherapy departments; at first floor level it is proposed to provide short term convalescent and respite care with ensuite bedroom accommodation, day space and a small cinema; at second floor level provision will be made for End of Life Palliative Care Suites, with relatives rooms and support accommodation throughout all floors. It is also proposed to add a two storey extension of offices on ground floor and sun lounge to first floor in the courtyard at the existing Beneavin Lodge entrance. It is proposed that the three storey extension would have a mix of brick render and proprietary cladding wall finishes and concrete roof tiles to match existing in colour and texture. Car parking and cycle provision will comply with Dublin City Council (DCC) standards including spaces for disabled use and will be located to the south of the site at the end of the existing site access road to the east of the site. It is proposed to provide a high quality comprehensive landscape scheme to include for provision of tree and shrub screen planting along the eastern boundary coupled with a new rendered block wall over part of this boundary where there is currently no wall, and to include for amenity area and covered walkway from the parking to the south of the site. Storm and Foul Drainage will be provided to comply with current DCC standards.
