We are delighted to announce that planning permission has been submitted for new strategic housing development in Raheen, Limerick. Planning has been fast tracked directly to An Bord Pleanala to advance faster in the delivery process. Lawlor Burns and Associates are providing our project management and cost management services for this development.
If approved, this project could create 400 new homes to the area, consisting of 202 houses, 156 apartments, and 26 duplexes. Out of these homes, 156 will be three-bed units, 24 four-bed and 20 two-bed. 10 four-bed, 10 three-bed, and 6 two-bed duplex homes have also been planned. Regarding apartments, these will be comprised of 92 three-bed units, 18 three-bed units, and 46 single bedroom apartments.
The proposed development will also include a creche facility that will provide 79 childcare places to families in the area. 377 car parking spaces and 311 bicycle parking spaces have also been planned.
Speaking to the Limerick Leader newspaper, our Managing Director Gary Lawlor said: “Today’s announcement demonstrates our commitment to Limerick. Limerick is a thriving city and county with a growing population and workforce. In recent weeks hundreds of high-end jobs have been announced for the city and many of these workers will be seeking high-quality housing to live in. This proposed development offers this housing solution.
The site for the development has access to the R510 and is close to all local amenities such as shops, educational facilities, centres of employment, parks and hospitals. Almost one-third of the development will be reserved for open spaces, such as a playground, large courtyards, wooded areas, cycle pathways and pedestrian walkways
We are submitting these plans as we want to see this site, close to Limerick City developed and help address the City and County’s housing need. If permission is granted, we would hope to begin construction as soon as possible.”
