Green light for large new development of family homes in county Kilkenny
Plans for a large new housing development in county Kilkenny has been given the green light by the local authority.
Kilkenny County Council has given Dunmore Property Development Co Limited permission to build 40 new homes at Rathculliheen, beside the existing Abbeygate estate in Ferrybank.
The development will consist of 32 two-storey, three-bedroom semi-detached houses; four two-storey, three-bedroom semi-detached dwellings; two two-storey three bedroom detached homes and two further two-story, two bedroom mid-terrace units.
The approval was delayed last September after the local authority raised a series of queries in relation to be the plans. These included questions about the number of homes in the development, how they would deal with foundations previously laid down on the site, water and electric services and road and pedestrian access.
The developer subsequently reverted to the council with a detailed 90-page response.
After studing the document the local authority approved the development.
