Further objections lodged against plans for 43 new homes on the Dublin Road
A series of further planning appeals have been lodged against plans for 43 new houses on the Dublin Road in Dundalk.
Talk of the Town revealed last week that Anne and Richard Duffy had submitted an appeal against Louth County Council’s decision to give Torca Developments Ltd the go ahead for the new development on a 3.97 acre site adjacent to the Louth County Hospital and beside Glenwood and Niall Clarke Oils Filling Station.
A further seven objections have now been lodged against the plans to An Bord Pleanála, including two from both the Rockfield and Glenwood Residents’ Association. Also objecting to the development are Tommy and Kate McEnteggart, Terence and Elizabeth Dullaghan, John and Paula Long, Mary Dunne and Patrick Malone.
Last month the council gave Dublin-based Torca Developments Ltd the go ahead for the residential units which would comprise of 14 two and half storey semi-detached houses, 3 two storey end terrace houses and 2 two storey apartment blocks incorporating 8 apartments.
As well as the houses, Torca Developments Ltd had secured permission for a new vehicular and pedestrian entrance to the Dublin Road and pedestrian and cycle access to the adjacent Glenwood and Rockfield Manor estates.
The site has since been placed on the market through local estate agents Property Partners Laurence Gunne for an undisclosed sum.
Selling agent PJ Roddy described the development site as “exceptionally well situated” and added that it “offers an excellent opportunity and potential to Developers interested in a prime, high profile location.”
