Galway Daily news Planning sought for Kinvara housing estate

Planning permission is being sought from the county council for a residential development of 28 houses in Kinvara.

The application by Greengrass Developments is to build a housing estate at the east side of the village, on an undeveloped greenfield site.

The homes in the estate would comprise 16 three and four bedroom, semi-detached houses and 12 two and three bedroom, terraced houses.

A new entrance onto the L-4509 Gort Road will be created for the estate, and the developer also intends to add two pedestrian crossings to the road.

Two areas of landscaped open space have been included in the design, one featuring a semi-natural play area.

A total of 56 car parking spaces are included in the plans, 44 of which will be within the curtilage of houses, along with 14 public bicycles spaces.

A decision is due from Galway County Council on this planning application by April 20 of this year.
