Plans to demolish old Kilkenny pub for major new housing development
Plans to demolish a well-known former pub and restaurant in Kilkenny and build more than 30 new homes on the site have been lodged with the local authority.
The development by MJ McGuinness would see the existing former pub on O’Loughlin Road torn down to be replaced by a new scheme of apartments and houses.
Under the plans, a new four-level apartment building would be constructed, comprising 11 one-bedroom apartments and balconies, seven two-bedroom apartments and balconies and three three-bedroom apartments and balconies. The building would also have an entrance hall/lift shaft/stairwell, waste management room, electrical and building services accommodation, rooftop plant room, one ‘own-door’ office unit on the ground floor and associated private open space/cycle park and boundary walls.
The scheme also includes plans for a terrace of three three-storey, three-bedroom houses with private open spaces, boundary walls, an ‘own door’ three-level apartment building with two two-bedroom ground-floor apartments and six one-bedroom apartments.
Kilkenny County Council is expected to rule on the planning application by the end of next month.
