Plans submitted for 20 houses near Barna

Plans have been submitted for a residential development of 20 houses at Cnocán Carrach near Barna.

According to planning documents submitted to the county council, the developer seeks to build an estate with 4 three-bed, semi-detached houses and 16 five-bed, detached houses.

Other work involved in the residential development includes “the construction of a new road accessed via the existing Dreasla housing development, infrastructure, ESB substation and all associated external works”.

Access to the new estate will be through the Dreasla housing development.

Mr Michael Walsh is seeking permission to build on land he owns which is currently used for agriculture.

A Letter of Understanding included in the application states that two of the units in the estate will be reserved for social or affordable housing as required under Part V of the Planning and Development Act of 2000.

As this estate is within the gaeltacht, four of the houses will be reserved for native Irish speakers in line with the County Development Plan.

Public submissions on this development can be made to the county council until April 9, and a decision on whether to grant planning permission is due from the council by April 30.
