Plans submitted for housing estate in central Oranmore

Planning permission is being sought from the county council for a residential development of 39 houses and apartments in Oranmore.

The application by MCL Prime Developments is to build a housing estate on an infill site on the Bog Road within Oranmore.

The site is bounded by the Frenchpark estate to the northeast, Oranvale housing development to the southeast, and fronts onto the Bog Road to the southwest.

The housing would comprise 32 apartments within three duplex blocks, each three storeys in height, with 16 one-bed units on the ground flood, and 16 two-bed units on the upper floors.

It would also contain 3 two-bed, terraced houses; 2 three-bed, semi-detached houses; and 2 three-bed, detached houses.

The development will also involve creating a vehicle access point onto the Bog Road, and a landscaped communal greenspace along the northern edge of the site.

Galway County Council is due to make a decision on this planning application by April 24 of this year.
