Plans have been submitted for 40 new homes on a prominent site in Ballincollig.

The former ESB depot site at the corner of the Link Road and the town’s Main Street is to be redeveloped into a mixed apartment, duplex, and townhouse development.

Local development company Boar’s Head Limited has lodged the plans with Cork City Council.

The application calls for existing structures on the 510sq m site to be demolished for the construction of 40 units, made up of nine one-bed apartments, eight two-bed apartments, four two-bed duplex units, six three-bed townhouses, and 13 three-bed duplexes.

There will be 46 car parking spaces and 39 bicycle parking spaces.

The planner is Butler O’Neill Total Planning Solutions, and the architects are Deady Gahan Architects.

The prominent and central site was put on sale by the ESB last year for €950,000 and was billed as a prime redevelopment site, suitable for residential or commercial uses.

It is located close to the Link Road Business Park and Eastside Retail Centre, where occupiers include Iceland and Costa Coffee.

Separately, construction has commenced on 44 new homes located on the circus field site opposite the White Horse bar.
