Plans lodged for 24 houses near Turloughmore

Galway Daily news Planning permission extended to build 113 houses in Moycullen

A residential development consisting of 24 houses is in the works at Lackaghbeg, Turloughmore.

Planning permission is being sought for 24 detached houses with garages.

Other works that would have to be done to facilitate this residential development include installing roads, footpaths, street lighting, and creating open spaces.

The new houses would be connected to the existing private wastewater treatment plant that serves Flynn’s of Lackagh home and garden store.

Access to the new estate is intended to go through an existing road that serves an adjacent housing development.

Planning permission was previously granted to Thomas Flynn, the applicant’s father, to build 13 houses on this site.

However Mr Flynn passed away in 2013 before work could begin on that project.

Acting on behalf of the applicant, Oliver Higgins Consulting Engineering said that the proposed housing development is just a short walk from Lackagh village centre.

Their report added that an emphasis has been placed on tree planting along the roadside to create a tree verge and reduce the visible impact.

The development is a mix of three and four bedroom homes, a number of which are bungalows.

Each comes with parking space for a minimum of two cars per home.

Submissions can be made to the county council about this project until March 31, and a decision is due on whether to grant permission by April 21.
