Green light for new development of family homes on site of protected structure in Kilkenny village
Plans to build a development of family homes in the centre of a Kilkenny village have been approved by the local authority.
Kilkenny County Council has granted planning to developer Edward Morrissey and his plans to build 10 new homes in the centre of Goresbridge right beside a protected building.
The development at Barrack Street is on a site next door to the late 18th century former RIC barracks and, more recently, the village’s Garda station.
Under the plans, a shed on the site connected to the former Garda station and originally built in the 1770s will be demolished.
The council engaged with the developer regarding the shed, paths, access, boundaries and the layout of some of the homes, and a 50-page document with updated information was provided to the local authority.
After reviewing the information the council granted permission for the development, which will now consist of four four-bedroom homes and six three-bedroom homes.
