PLANS for more than 40 new homes in Knocknaheeny have been lodged by City Hall in the latest housing development planned by the local authority.
The planning application is phase 1C of the Cork Northwest Quarter Regeneration project and comes almost four months after the official opening of the previous phase.
Phase 1C includes 41 new homes, including a range of three-bed houses and two-bed apartments. The planning application also includes proposals to construct new roads to service the development, including a new road at Kilmore Road Lower, and modifications to the existing road network and public realm.
Two properties will be demolished entirely on Ardmore Avenue, too.
The plans were previously on display in the area in April, with locals invited to give their thoughts at the time.
A public consultation held at the Knocknaheeny Community Building outlined Phase 1C, as well as looking ahead to Phases 2B and 2C.
Between the current phase and the two latter phases, City Hall plans a total of 104 homes in the area in schemes worth a total of €27.9 million.
The plans are on display at City Hall until Friday, September 7.
Written submissions can be made until Friday, September 21.
The application follows last week’s submission of plans for 112 new apartments at Thomas Davis Street, as well as significant progress on a number of other schemes.
In all, City Hall has more than 400 homes in the planning process, including schemes on Barrack Street, White Street and Wood Street, which have been approved and are expected to commence in the coming months.
These schemes are in addition to the 406 units currently in various stages of construction, including major developments at Deanrock, Church Road, the Meadows and other phases of the Knocknaheeny regeneration scheme.
