145-house development planned for Cavan Town

Plans have been drawn up for a 145-unit housing development near Cavan Town.

Drumlark Investments Limited has applied to Cavan County Council for permission for the large-scale residential development on lands at Drumlark.

The development will consist of the provision of a total of 145 residential units, along with the provision of a two-storey crèche facility. That includes 91 houses and 54 duplex apartments.

This will consist of 25 two-bed units, 55 three-bed units, and 11 four beds. The dwellings will range in type and design.

The 54 duplex departments meanwhile will consist of 15 one-bed and 39 two-bed units, also ranging in style.

To accommodate the proposed development, Drumlark Investments will need to carry out extensive site excavation works to include the reprofiling of ground levels within the site and associated site works.

It’s proposed to build the creche with associated parking, bicycle and bin storage. Plans for the overall development also include provision of car parking at surface level via a combination of in-curtilage parking for dwellings and via on-street parking for the creche and duplex apartment units.

Electric vehicle charge points with associated site infrastructure ducting will be provided throughout the site, and a new access point from the public road will be created together with connections to the existing public footpath.

A new shared cycleway and footpath will serve the site and a residential communal open space areas will include play areas, along with landscape works, public lighting, planting and boundary treatments.

A Natura Impact Statement (NIS) has been prepared to accompany the application.

Established in 2017, Drumlark Investments Limited is registered to an address at Rathcorrick, Cavan.
