Plans for 77 new homes

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

THE NUM­BER of homes in north Wex­ford is set to in­crease in 2019.

Per­mis­sion has been granted by Wex­ford County Coun­cil to three ap­pli­cants who wish to con­struct hous­ing de­vel­op­ments in Creagh Demesne and Ferns.

Two plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tions were sub­mit­ted in Oc­to­ber that will ex­pand Creagh Demesne by a to­tal of 43 ad­di­tional houses. Even though both ap­pli­ca­tions are sep­a­rate, they are side-by-side in be­tween Hunter’s Green and Pear­son’s Brook in Creagh. Ap­pli­cant Donal O Don­n­chada wants to con­struct 31 two-storey units af­ter gain­ing per­mis­sion from landowner Billy Mol­loy. It will con­sist of nine two-bed ter­raced, 16 three-bed ter­raced and six three-bed semi de­tached houses.

Mr Mol­loy, who is the other ap­pli­cant, would like to erect 12 two-storey houses con­sist­ing of eight two-bed ter­raced and four three-bed ter­raced houses.

In the ap­pli­ca­tions, Mol­loy ar­chi­tects said there is a let­ter of con­sent from both Mr O Don­n­chada and Mr Mol­loy giv­ing per­mis­sion for nec­es­sary over­lap­ping of the sites.

Plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tions were lodged pre­vi­ously and were re­fused for rea­sons re­lat­ing to the con­struc­tion of the sec­tion of the in­ner re­lief road, which is now com­pleted and will serve the pro­posed de­vel­op­ments.

In Ferns, Knockardagh De­vel­op­ments Ltd was also granted per­mis­sion by Wex­ford County Coun­cil to con­struct 34 houses that will con­sist of 22 three-bed units and 12 two-bed houses in Castle­land.

The hous­ing devel­op­ment will be sit­u­ated on the En­nis­cor­thy Road and the en­trance will be ad­ja­cent to Clu­ain Caisleain hous­ing es­tate.

The fu­ture looked a lot bleaker this time last year when a pub­lic meet­ing was held in Gorey to deal with the hous­ing cri­sis in north Wex­ford.
