Decision delayed on major housing development in Offaly

A decision from Offaly County Council on a major housing development in Tullamore has been delayed.

Permission is being sought for the construction of 99 dwellings at Kearney’s Field on the Clara Road in the Tullamore but the local authority has requested further information from the developers before making a decision.

The development will comprise of 54 three-bedroom two-storey semi-detached houses, 14 four-bedroom two-storey semi-detached houses, eight three-bedroom two storey end terrace houses, eight three-bedroom storey and a half mid terraced, seven three-bedroom bungalows, five four-bedroom two-storey detached with garage to rear and three four-bedroom two storey detached houses.

According to the application, each dwelling is to include an option for solar panels on the roof slope. The plans also include the provision of site development works including new site entrance, roads, paths, paving, parking, drainage, amenity space, landscaped public open space, street lighting and associated boundary treatments.

The application was lodged on February 1 and a decision was due on March 28. The planners at OCC officially requested further information on that date.

The applicant has six months to lodge that further information to put the wheels in motion again with the planning department.
