Plans for 57 ‘stylish’ homes in Kingscourt

A Meath based housing development company has applied to Cavan County Council seeking permission to build 57 “stylish” new homes near Kingscourt.

The proposed development consists of revisions to part of the housing development now known as Cnoc na Rí, for which planning was initially granted to KFE Property Development Limited back in 2021.

The Louth-based KFE had submitted plans to build 86 dwellings comprising 60 houses and 28 apartment/duplex units.

The planned houses were two-storey in height and had an option for photovoltaic/solar panels on roof slopes.

The apartment/duplex dwellings were to be accommodated in seven three-storey buildings with external access stairs to first floor level and terrace provided at first floor level to the rear of each block.

The plans, which were sanctioned with a total of 33 conditions attached, also provided for all site development works.

Access to the proposed development would be via a new vehicular access from the Kells Road (R164) in the south-eastern part of the site. Significant further information and revised plans were submitted as part of the planning process.

Now Dunshaughlin-based Castle Homes Ventures has submitted a fresh planning application for the site, with changes both to the type and number of houses to be built in the central area of the wider Cnoc na Rí development

A decision on the application is due on or before October 25 provided no further information is requested.

Meanwhile, Virginia Concepts LTD is seeking permission to demolish one partially constructed dwelling and, in its place, construct two semi-detached, four-bed houses at sites 106 and 107 Rampart View, Rathdrum, Virginia.
