A NEW development unveiled last week will begin to address the housing needs in Clondalkin, the Mayor of South Dublin County Council, Cllr Mark Ward, has said.

The mayor was on hand to turn the sod on 63 rapid build social housing units at St Cuthbert’s Park, which include two-storey terraced, semi-detached and detached houses.
 The development will consist of 45 three bedroom / four-person units and 18 three bedroom / five-person houses.

All units are designed to hold a minimum Building Energy Rating (BER) energy performance of A3.
Constructed on undeveloped lands at Lealand Road, Deansrath, the development will consist of two-storey houses primarily grouped in terraces, four groups of semidetached houses and six detached houses.

The works will include a new access route off Lealand Road, landscaping works, and various associated ancillary works on the site and adjacent areas.

The site is bounded by Lealand Road to the east, Lealand Avenue, Lealand Walk and Deansrath Community College to the south, and St Cuthbert’s Park to the north and west.

The site is well served by public transport, schools, green space and local facilities.
 Mayor Ward said: “I’m delighted to be able to mark the start of construction of these houses in at St Cuthbert’s Park, Deansrath. There is an established housing need in this area of Clondalkin, and this development starts to address these needs.

This provision forms part of the council’s commitment to driving the building of social housing units in the county over the next few years and comes as local authorities across the country are highlighting the development and provision of housing through the #HousingFocus campaign.”
 The development at St Cuthbert’s Park was carried out in line with Part 8 of the Local Government Planning and Development Regulations 2001.

This allows local authorities to propose the construction of houses, and follows the completion of 17 social housing units in Mayfield, Clondalkin, and 69 units in Sheehy Skeffington Meadows, Tallaght.
The council expects to deliver 11 new social housing units in St Mark’s Clondalkin, 24 units in Killininny, Oldbawn, 28 housing units in MacUilliam, Fortunestown and another 16 units in Sheehy Skeffington Meadows, Tallaght over the next few months. Another 185 social housing units are expected to be handed over to the council by July 2019.
