Developers in new plan for 400 homes at Ballykeeffe
PLANS for a multi-million euro housing development in Ballykeeffe have been lodged with Limerick County Council.
The planning application was lodged earlier this week by Crescent Ridge Properties.
The developer is proposing to build a total of 426 homes on a 35-acre site near the Father Russell Road. The site is bounded by the rail line to Irish Cement and the new Southern Ring Road approach route to the Shannon Tunnel will also run adjacent to the site.
According to the planning application which was lodged with the local authority, Crescent Ridge Properties is seeking permission to build 294 houses, 66 duplexes and 66 apartments. The provision of car parking, landscaping and public lighting are also included in the application and it is also proposed that a creche will be built within the development.
If planning permission is granted, the existing Ballykeeffe boreen, which links father Russell Road and the Dock Road, will also be widened to facilitate the increased traffic flow and it is proposed that an existing house, located on the site, will be demolished..
Theres a fairly extensive landbank between Ballykeeffe estate and the dock road and with the 2nd phase of the ring road on its way its bound to attract even more attention in the future. Incidentally the same company had a similar application for basically the same site dismissed as “premature” back in 2006. I wonder is the recently constructed Ballykeeffe boreen overbridge itself, wide enough to facilitate the proposed improvements?
