Cunnane Stratton Reynolds Achieve Substantial Reduction in Development Contributions for a Small Business

Cunnane Stratton Reynolds has successfully achieved a reduction of over 60% in the development contributions for a small business from Dublin City Council. Our client wished to convert part of their house to a commercial use, and had obtained planning permission in 2011 to do so at a prohibitively expensive cost. They had been levied nearly €20,000 in development contributions rendering the scheme unviable. CSR has obtained a grant of permission for the change of use with a development contribution reduced to €7,300.
