Revised plans submitted for 67 new homes on the Dublin Road

New much revised plans have been drawn up for 67 new homes on the Dublin Road in Dundalk.

Last August Dublin-based Torca Developments Ltd were granted conditional planning permission by Louth County Council to build 43 new homes on a 3.97 acre site between the Glenwood housing estate and Niall Clarke Oils filling station and the Teagasc offices which were sold in 2017.

This was subsequently rejected on appeal to An Bord Pleanála in February.

Now Torca Developments have returned with new plans for the 1.56ha site which would include the construction of 67 dwellings within nine blocks ranging in height from one to four storeys.

The development would comprise of 23 one bed apartments, 13 two bed apartments, 14 two bed duplex units, 7 three bed duplex units, 1 four bed unit, 4 one bed houses and 5 three bed houses.

There would be a total residential gross floor area of c.5,522.2sqm.

As part of the application new vehicular and pedestrian access would be created via the Dublin Road to the south-west and Glenwood to the north with new pedestrian access via Rockfield to the north-east and Glenwood to the north.

The application also seeks the go ahead for all associated site development works, services provision, car parking, cycle parking, bin stores, open space, vehicular/pedestrian access, landscaping and boundary treatment works.

A decision on the matter will be made by July 16th.

Previously Torca Developments Ltd had been given the go ahead for 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.
