New housing development given go-ahead


Planning permission has been granted to a housing development in Knocknacarra.

The new development, to be built at Barna Road by Highgate Properties Limited, was given the go-ahead by the city council this week.

This will see the construction of 8 two-storey detached homes, including landscaping, a greenway and a new entrance at the site, known as Ashwood.

The development has been approved with 23 conditions.

Some of the conditions relate to boundary walls, where planners have placed restrictions on the height, type and finish of the walls.

The exact finish for the greenway is yet to be agreed, however this will be done before construction begins.

119 thousand euro will be given by the developer to public services in the area, as part of another condition attached to the granting of permission.
