House plan on listed site

Wexford People - - NEWS -

A site which con­tains an un­der­ground en­clo­sure recorded as a na­tional mon­u­ment, is at the cen­tre of a plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion to Wex­ford County Coun­cil.

Alice Bell is seek­ing per­mis­sion to build a house and waste wa­ter treat­ment sys­tem on the site at Rath­jar­ney in Pierces­town.

The area is close to a pre-Chris­tian en­clo­sure listed un­der Sec­tion 12 of the Na­tional Mon­u­ments (Amend­ment) Act, 1994.

The land is owned by Fred­er­ick and El­iz­a­beth Bell who have given per­mis­sion to their daugh­ter to ap­ply for plan­ning per­mis­sion.

En­clo­sures are early ar­chae­o­log­i­cal sites which are sep­a­rated from sur­round­ing land by earth­works, walls or fenc­ing.

They in­di­cate set­tle­ment ar­eas, de­fences or burial grounds.
