WATERFORD City and County Council has recently granted permission for a nine unit luxury housing development on a one hectare site to the north of the village of Dunmore East.
MDP + Partners stated they were delighted to receive planning permission on behalf of their client QPO Dunmore Ltd for the development at Knockacurrin. The residential development consists of two types of detached four bedroom houses, which are set to be orientated around a central green space.
A planning application was lodged for the current development in March 2020, and was eventually granted subject to 20 conditions a year later. As part of the conditions the developer has to pay financial contributions totalling €45,000 to the planning authority in respect to public infrastructure and facilities prior to commencement. They must also lodge a bond, and on completion provide a certificate stating that the development has been completed to such an extent to render it capable of being taken in charge.
A senior planner’s report stated that having regard to the nature and extent of the residential development, it would be in accordance with relevant development plan policies and objectives for the area, and would not seriously injure the amenities or value of property in the vicinity. Separately, planning permission was granted on a nearby site for 61 houses on other residential zoned lands, which includes the construction of a section of the proposed link road from the Killea Road to the Dunmore Road.
