New development of large family homes planned for Kilkenny city
A large new development of family homes is being planned for a greenfield site in Kilkenny city.
Kilkenny County Council recently received a proposal from developer Glenveagh Homes Ltd seeking permission to build 87 dwellings on a site at Granges Road in Ayrefield.
The developer in their application refers to this being Phase 1 of the development, with Phase 2 being dependent on permission being granted and satisfy certain requirements to continue with the development.
Under the plans received Glenveagh hope to build 87 homes on a 3.2 hectare site opposite James’s Park and the Kilkenny Greyhound Stadium.
The development will consist of 21 three / four-bed homes, 48 three-bed homes, 10 two-bed homes and eight maisonette apartments.
The plans also call for the construction of a 347sqm crèche and 167 car parking spaces.
Access to the site will be via the existing entrance onto Granges Road to the east of the site and a new pedestrian and cycle access will be created to the development from Lousybush Lane.
A decision on the development is expected from the local authority by the end of June.
