20 houses set for Rath­drum

Bray People - - NEWS -

THERE was some good news for those seek­ing so­cial hous­ing in Wick­low as 20 houses are to be built in Rath­drum.

Mem­bers signed off on the plans on Mon­day for the devel­op­ment at Brew­ery Straight.

A pre­sen­ta­tion was given by Coady Ar­chi­tects out­lin­ing that there will be one-, two- and three-bed units curved around an amenity space. They will have a BER rat­ing of A3. Cllr Pat Fitzger­ald pro­posed the re­port and said that it is ‘good news for south Wick­low’.

‘ This will help in the ru­ral com­mu­nity of Rath­drum and I wel­come the fact that there is space for more houses to be built in the fu­ture.’

Cllr Pat Fitzger­ald shared this view and sec­onded the pro­posal.

‘ This ap­pears to be a very well laid out es­tate. There are cur­rently 868 peo­ple on the Ark­low Mu­nic­i­pal District hous­ing list so this is ex­tremely wel­come. I look for­ward to seek­ing the houses built and open to the pub­lic,’ he said.

Cllr John Snell com­pli­mented the com­pany on its de­sign and said that it was no sur­prise given their re­cent award win for their Ark­low Li­brary de­sign.
