Planning sought to build 85 new houses in Offaly town

A planning application has been lodged with Offaly County Council for the construction of 85 new houses in Edenderry.

Newlyn Homes Ltd submitted the plans recently to build the 85 two-storey houses in the Tyrrell's Lane area of the town, not far from Edenderry Town FC on the Rathangan Road.

The houses would form Phase 3 of the overall Newberry development. Phase 1 and Phase 2 were built in the town over the last 15 years.

The proposed development also includes access off the permitted estate road from the boundary of Phase 1 and 2 of Newberry.

The lands are approximately 1.44 hectares and are bounded to the North East by the current development, Tyrrell's Lane to the South, a laneway to the West and by unzoned lands to the North.

The application includes pedestrian links from the existing houses to link to an intended cycle link west of Tyrrell's Brook as provided within the local area plan for Edenderry.

Offaly County Council will now review the application and come back with a decision in the coming months.
