An Bord Pleanála hands setback to plans for 258 houses & apartments in Oranmore

Galway Daily news Planning approval for Oranhill residential development

Plans to build 258 houses and apartments on the outskirts of Oranmore have been set back by An Bord Pleanála.

Roykeel Ltd is seeking approval for a Strategic Housing Development on and to the west of the N67 at Oranhill, Oranmore.

The proposed housing development would consist of 127 houses and 131 apartments, along with a creche and other site works.

The plans were before An Bord Pleanála for a pre-application consultation process, where the developer must outline the plans to the board and county council, so they can decide if they qualify for a full planning application.

In a decision dated February 14 and published this week, An Bord Pleanála ruled that the plans require further consideration or amendment before planning permission can be sought.
