Castletownshend says ‘no’ to housing plan

A proposed development of 100 houses for the tiny West Cork village of Castletownshend has proved unifying with 93 per cent of the residents opposed to it. A committee formed at a public meeting within days of the planning application being submitted to Cork County Council has launched a “Save Castle townshend” campaign.The grounds for objection include: safety, including the already dangerous double blind corner approach; the inability of a village of 98 permanent homes to absorb a new development which amounts to a second village.
