Permission for ten houses in Kilbride turned down
PLANNING permission for ten houses in Ballinacor East, Kilbride has been refused by Wicklow County Council.
Andrew Gaffney had applied for permission for eight detached houses and two semi detached houses, connection to mains sewer, connection to mains water and associated site works.
However, the Planning Department in Wicklow County Council has refused permission because it was felt that the location of the site on the periphery of Barndarrig, removed from the core of village, would represent haphazard development that would not strengthen the established structure of the village. The project was also considered premature pending the development of lands closer to the village and the provision of adequate pedestrian facilities. It was further felt that the location of the proposed development within the development boundary of Barndarrig would result in exceeding the population target for Barndarrig as set out in the Wicklow County Development Plan 2016-2022.
Existing deficiency in the water supply to the area was also another reason given for refusing permission.
