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.
