News & Updates

Irish Water has awarded the contract for the design, construction and commissioning of a new covered storage reservoir at Stillorgan to J. Murphy & Sons Limited. Construction commenced in November 2018 and is expected to last approximately two years.

Planning permission for the reservoir works was granted, subject to sixteen planning conditions, by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council on the 1 June 2017. An appeal was lodged to An Bord Pleanála seeking the removal of one of the conditions which is to provide publicly accessible open space within the site. In December 2017, An Bord Pleanála approved the planning application to ensure the entire site is retained for this future development.

You can view the planning application details on the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council website.
