Kilkenny village to discover if large new housing development will go ahead
Plans to complete a housing development in a county Kilkenny village are back on the table.
In September last year, developer John Stauton applied to Kilkenny County Council to build 42 new homes as part of phase two of a development at Whitehall in Paulstown.
Some 35 residential units were built under phase one of the development.
Kilkenny County planners had some concerns over the plans designed for phase two and reverted to Mr Stauton last October requesting more details on 16 aspects of the development.
Planners requested further information regarding drainage, sewerage, access and construction access, open spaces, the layout of the development and impact on privacy of existing residential units, the provision of a crèche and ability for the National School to accommodate the expected extra children due to the development.
Now the developers have put together a comprehensive document addressing all the aspects of the development the council planners raised.
If given the go-ahead, the development will consist of one-bed, two-bed, three-bed, and four-bed homes ranging from detached houses to apartments.
It’s planned to create 24 three-bed homes, nine four-bed homes, two three-bed apartments, one two-bed apartment and six one-bed apartments. This would bring the total for the whole development up to 77 units.
It is expected a decision on whether the development gets the green light from the council will be made in two weeks time.
