Plans for large new housing estate in Kilkenny village on ice after concerns raised
Plans to build 48 new homes in a Kilkenny village have hit a snag after the local authority requested more details about certain aspects of the plans.
Developer John Staunton lodged an application with Kilkenny County Council in July seeking permission to build the housing development at Moate Road in Ballyragget, near the centre of the town.
However, the council received numerous submissions from members of the public who had concerns about the increase in traffic the development would cause. Others sought clarification regarding the drainage of the site.
The council has now returned to the developer seeking more detail on these aspects of the plans.
John Staunton is hoping to create a development consisting of 14 four-bed homes, 30 three-bed homes, three two-bed bungalows, and one two-bed mid-terrace house.
A decision on the development has now been put on hold while the council awaits further detail.
