Plan­ning for 11 houses refused

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

Plan­ning per­mis­sion for eleven houses in Gorey has been refused.

Nigel Clarke De­vel­op­ments Limited had ap­plied to Wex­ford County Coun­cil for plan­ning per­mis­sion to built eleven houses at Bal­ly­ow­nen or Rams­fort­park, Gorey. The houses, if given the go ahead would have com­prised eleven two storey three bed homes as well as park­ing, green ar­eas and other an­cil­lary works.

In the plan­ning re­port com­piled by Gra­ham Hunt the area where the houses were to be sited as de­scribed as a tri­an­gu­lar shaped un­de­vel­oped site op­po­site Gorey Show­grounds. He said the land gen­er­ally drops in ground level to­wards its north­ern bound­ary. The Creagh Stream with ex­ist­ing ma­ture land­scap­ing forms the north­ern bound­ary of the site.

Mr Hunt said that ‘the pro­posed de­vel­op­ment did not pro­vide for the pro­vi­sion of an ap­pro­pri­ate ri­par­ian zone ad­ja­cent to the Creagh stream on the north­ern side of the site. As such the pro­posed de­vel­op­ment would be con­trary to ob­jec­tives of the Gorey Lo­cal Area Plan and to the proper plan­ning and sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment of the area.’
