Permission sought to build 22 houses in Laois town

Planning permission has been sought to develop 22 houses at a site in Portarlington.

Kevin O’Rourke has sought planning permission to develop the houses at Droughill, Portarlington.

The plan for 22 houses includes 14 three bedroom detached two storey houses and another eight two bedroom semi-detached two storey houses.

The development includes a new vehicular access road off the existing roundabout and associated site works.

Further information and revised plans in relation to the application have been furnished to the Planning Authority and are available for inspection at Laois County Council offices during office hours.

Meanwhile in nearby Bracknagh Village, County Offaly Thoval Properties Ltd has sought planning permission to develop 13 houses consisting of five two storey terraced three bedroom houses and eight two storey three bedroom semi-detached houses. This will include two access points to the R442.

This comes a couple of weeks after Two Mile House Construction Limited applied to Laois County Council to build 32 new homes on a number of different sites in Kilminchy and separately permission was sought to build 72 houses in Stradbally beside St Coleman's National School and 23 houses on the Borris Road in Portlaoise near St. Mary's CBS.
