Per­mis­sion for ten houses in Kil­bride turned down

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

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.
