New homes planned on site of former factory in county Kilkenny
A developer is seeking permission to demolish a disused factory in a Kilkenny village and create family homes on its site.
Hansa Properties Ltd has made an application to Kilkenny County Council looking to build four homes at Talbot’s Inch.
The plans would involve the demolition of the remains of a former Hosiery Factory to make way for the houses on the former factory site.
Under the plans, a derelict end of terrace cottage would be renovated and extended into a two bedroom, single-storey house, aling with the the construction of a four bedroom two-storey detached house, a five bedroom two-storey detached house, and a five bedroom three-storey detached house.
The application is within an Architectural Conservation Area and the curtilage of a protected structure.
A decision on the application is expected from the local authority by the end of June.
