Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

PER­MIS­SION has been granted for a large nurs­ing home in Donard con­sist­ing of 60 beds and eight dormer houses.

The de­vel­op­ment in­cludes a sin­gle storey nurs­ing home with 60 beds and eight dormer houses which con­sist of four sets of semi de­tached dorm­ers.

The ap­pli­ca­tion in the name of Ted Flynn was lodged with Wick­low County Coun­cil in De­cem­ber of last year and re­ceived the green-light by plan­ners last week.

Cllr Ed­ward Tim­mins, the Cathaoir­leach of Wick­low County Coun­cil, has wel­comed the de­vel­op­ment.

‘It is a fa­cil­ity which is need- ed in west Wick­low. There is al­ready a nurs­ing home in Dunlavin which has been run­ning very suc­cess­fully and is a great fa­cil­ity.

‘This new nurs­ing home will be lo­cated in the beau­ti­ful sur­round­ings of Donard and will pro­vide an ex­tra fa­cil­ity for the west, which is a part of the county which is sadly of­ten over­looked.’

The de­vel­op­ment will be lo­cated at Donard Demesne West. The ap­pli­ca­tion also sought re­cessed en­trance and ac­com­mo­da­tion roads to serve the pro­posed de­vel­op­ment and con­nec­tion to pub­lic foul sewer and wa­ter mains.
