Plans for apartment building on vacant site in Rahoon

Galway Daily news Planning appeal over 91 houses & apartments in Athenry

Plans have been submitted to Galway City Council to demolish a vacant bungalow in Rahoon to make way for an apartment building.

Belville Building & Construction is seeking planning permission for a three storey apartment building on the Rahoon Road in Galway City.

This will comprise 14 units in total, 4 one-bedroom apartments, 9 two-bedroom apartments, and 1 three-bedroom apartment.

A new entry point for vehicles and pedestrians onto the Rahoon Road will also be created.

Currently there is a large bungalow, a shed, and a small outbuilding on the site, which have been uninhabited for several years according to the application.

“At the time of the site visit there was some evidence of anti-social behaviour around the site, with empty beverage containers and loose rubbish visible,” the design statement stated.

These are to be demolished to make way for the apartment building on the 0.186 site at Mincloon, Rahoon.

Galway City Council is due to make a decision on this planning application by January
