Plan for 86 new houses in Cool­cotts

Wexford People - - NEWS -

A PLAN­NING ap­pli­ca­tion has been sub­mit­ted for an 86-dwelling es­tate on Cool­cotts Lane.

CFO Con­struc­tion Lim­ited has al­ready been granted per­mis­sion for a 71-dwelling es­tate along that road and the lat­est ap­pli­ca­tion is for a site ad­join­ing that devel­op­ment.

The new ap­pli­ca­tion seeks to con­struct three two-storey four-bed de­tached houses, 20 two-storey four-bed semi-de­tached units, 12 two-storey three-bed semi-de­tached units, 43 two-storey three-bed ter- raced units, and eight two-storey two-bed ter­raced units, as well as all as­so­ci­ated works, hard and soft land­scap­ing and bound­ary treat­ments, and con­nec­tion to pub­lic ser­vices.

In their ap­pli­ca­tion, the agent for CFO Con­struc­tion, which is based in Dublin, ex­plained that the site is bor­dered on the north by Wex­ford Race­course, and to the west by ex­ist­ing hous­ing schemes.

Im­prove­ments to Cool­cotts Lane are ac­counted for in the ap­pli­ca­tion and 15 houses are due to be trans­ferred to Wex­ford County Coun­cil for the pur­pose of so­cial and af­ford­able hous­ing on com­ple­tion.

It was added, in the ap­pli­cant’s let­ter, that a crèche fa­cil­ity for the area was not vi­able.

It was sug­gested in­stead that a do­na­tion could be made to a state-funded child­care provider, one of which had been iden­ti­fied, as it was felt that this would go much fur­ther in terms of child­care for the area than the build­ing of a new fa­cil­ity that would not be vi­able.
