21 NEW homes will soon be delivered in a county Limerick town, as their construction comes to an end.
Houses in the new Woodfield Manor estate in Newcastle West are expected to be completed by December, with the homes earmarked for affordable housing.
The 21 new houses follow 30 that were delivered in 2022, which were then bought by Limerick City and County Council and Clúid Housing Association.
Developers DC Manor have pledged their support in delivering housing in the area following their €18million investment in the new estate at Woodfield Manor and a new development at Arraview.
DC Manor owner Denis Corbett said that, as a local firm, they see first hand how badly homes are needed in the area.
“Woodfield Manor represents a significant housing development that will have the scope and capacity to provide badly-needed homes for the Newcastle West community and beyond and we are delighted that we can provide a further 21 homes for families who need them in the coming weeks,” he said.
“As a local company based in Newcastle West, we recognise and see first-hand the need for homes in the area and we are committed to both the delivery of homes and the investment in our local economy.”
Planning permission was granted in 2020 for 93 units on the site, consisting of 72 three and four-bedroomed homes, nine bungalows, and 12 apartments.
Mr Corbett also apologised to residents of the Arraview Housing Estate for delays in getting the project fully finished, and confirmed that final planning permission for 10 more houses at the estate had been granted.
Mr Corbett said: “The delays to the completion of the development have been regrettable and we were anxious to ensure that all issues surrounding the development were resolved for the residents of Arraview.”
“We are now delighted to confirm that we have recently received planning permission for a further 10 homes to complete works on this estate and we will endeavour to finish all works at Arraview by the end of 2024 with an expected investment of €2.5m in addition to the employment of local contractors to see out the completion of this project,” he concluded.
