Permission granted for further 54 houses on city’s northside as part of 349-home masterplan

The overall phased masterplan for the site at Clonconane.

THE northside of the city is set to get another 54 homes following the granting of planning permission by Limerick City and County Council.

Riverpoint Construction had applied to build 54 additional properties at Clonconane, between the Old Cratloe Road and the Pass (Meelick) Road, as part of their ongoing development.

This latest application forms phase four of the developer’s ongoing plan to develop 349 homes on the site.

Council planners attached 30 conditions to the granting of permission, including that a planned creche or childcare facility for the development be constructed when 75 of the houses are built or sold.

Planners also attached conditions to the hours that work can take place on the site, that every property be equipped for electric vehicle charging, and that no fences or boundary walls be constructed around the front gardens of the dwellings.

The latest phase to be granted permission would consist of 30 three-storey five-bedroom semi-detached houses, two two-storey four-bed semi-detached houses, 14 three-bedroom semis, four single storey two-bedroom end-of-terrace units, and four single storey two-bed mid-terrace units.

Riverpoint Construction were previously granted planning permission for 86 properties on the site in June and a further 98 in July.

A further 99 units were granted permission by Limerick City and County Council in September 2022, but these plans have since been appealed to An Bord Pleanála.

A decision on those plans were due to be made by June, but due to staffing issues within the planning appeals body, a decision has yet to be made with no expected date for the case to be decided.
