Details of a major housing plan for the south side of Cork City have been revealed.

Murnane & O’Shea Limited has formally submitted plans for the development of lands at Castletreasure, Moneygurney, and Maryborough (townlands) in Douglas, Cork.

The application comes under the large-scale residential development scheme, and includes a total of 580 units. That includes some 263 houses and 317 apartments and duplexes.

The development also includes a two-storey childcare facility with capacity for 122 children, and a mixed-use two-storey building to accommodate retail and cafe use.

The residential aspect of the scheme includes a mix of housing type and size, ranging from four-bed, semi-detached houses to one-bed apartments.

The proposed development also includes the construction of a section of the Ballybrack Valley Pedestrian and Cycle Route, and connections to existing roadways.

The development is adjacent to the Cairn Homes plan for 472 homes in the area, and includes amendments to the permitted boundary and open space aspects of this development. 

Access to the new homes will be via a vehicular bridge over the Moneygurney Stream to a new junction on the existing Carr’s Hill, and alternative access will be via the upgraded M28 Ringaskiddy motorway, once that is completed.

‘Best suburban site in years’

Elsewhere, two separate planning applications for what has been termed the “best suburban site in years” in Cork have been lodged.

Details of the plans were revealed by the Irish Examiner in recent weeks and, now, formal plans have been submitted to the local authority.

This prime suburban Cork site in Douglas is ear-marked for a residential development of 113 units including houses, apartments and a creche is to be jointly developed by O’Callaghan Properties and Johnson & Perrott motor business owner Mark Whitaker.

Johnson and Perrott Property Development Limited has lodged two plans with the council for works at a site on the South Douglas Road in Cork.

The first plan includes 93 homes and a creche, as well as various public realm and associated works.

The second plan includes some 20 homes, giving a total of 113 homes between the two schemes.

Cobh homes

Meanwhile, in East Cork, planning permission for the development of 71 new homes at a housing estate in Cobh has been granted.

Cork County Council had granted permission to Wayleaf Ltd for the development at Inis Alainn, Carrignafoy, Cobh, but several third-party appeals were lodged against this decision.

The scheme includes some 71 two-, three- and four-bedroom homes on a 2.55ha site located in the northeastern suburbs of Cobh town, around 1km from the town centre.

It is located adjacent to the existing Inis Alainn estate and close to the local GAA grounds.

Local planners had imposed strict conditions on the development when granting permission. This included a requirement for a childcare facility to be operating when no more than 30 homes would be made available for occupancy.

Among the matters raised during the appeals process were concerns about the narrow, boreen-type road which serves the area, the heavy volume of traffic associated with the nearby GAA club, and concerns about the inclusion of a three-storey apartment aspect in the development which, it was said, was “not in keeping with the existing houses in the area”.

An Bord Pleanála has signed off on the development, though, noting that it is in compliance with the local area development plan.
