Portella De­vel­op­ments Ltd are be­hind the plans for the devel­op­ment at Mon­ey­car­roll, New­town­moun­tkennedy. En­abling works started on the site in Septem­ber 2019, and a com­mence­ment no­tice was lodged in March 2020. How­ever, there were sub­se­quent de­lays due to the Covid-19 pan­demic. Works have com­menced on 28 units, which are at var­i­ous stages. Per­mis­sion for the devel­op­ment was re­ceived in June of 2015, and is due to end this month.

The devel­op­ment is ex­pected to be com­pleted by De­cem­ber 31, 2021, and an ex­ten­sion of one year and four months is be­ing sought to the pe­riod of per­mis­sion.
