28 NEW apartments are to be delivered in the city after plans for a site on Sexton Street North were given the green light by Council planners.

Limerick City and County Council planners granted permission for the 28 apartment development, which would be spread over four blocks, close to Thomond Park.

A derelict factory on the site will be demolished to make way for the new apartments.

The development will consist of a mix of studio and two-bedroomed apartments.

Plans were officially lodged in November of last year, but were deemed invalid by planners.

After submitting a significant amount of further information in September, as requested by the Council, the plans were given the go ahead at the end of October.

29 conditions were attached to the granted planning permission stating the hours that work can take place on the site, that no nearby properties are damaged during the construction, and that a management company be put in place to manage the development, along with a detailed management plan for how the scheme will operate.

The Council also stipulated that a two-metre high privacy wall be constructed along the side and rear boundaries of the site.
