Green light for 40 new homes in county Kilkenny town after appeal to An Bord Pleánala
A housing development approved by Kilkenny County Council and appealed to An Bord Pleánala has now been granted planning permission.
The national planning appeals body have approved plans for phase one of a development which will see 40 homes built on a site at Ogenty in Gowran.
The development will involve the construction of 10 two-storey, four-bedroom houses, 17 three-bed house and 13 two-bed homes. It is understood the second phase of the development, should it go-ahead would see a further 25 homes built.
The plans were originally approved by the local authority in November last year, but this decision was appealed to An Bord Pleánala shortly afterwards.
The planning body then inspected the site in February of this year before coming to a decision on the development last week.
The new housing estate put forward by developer Bellerin 2 Ltd will also see the provision of 87 car parking spaces and a new vehicle access entrance off the L6697 road.
In making the decision to approve the development, An Bord Pleánala attached 18 conditions the developer must adhere to. These conditions must be met before phase two will be up for consideration.
As part of the new development, landscaping and boundary treatments, road widening and realignment and the provision of a new public footpath along the boundary of the site will all be created.
