Council unveils new homes in Dundrum estate

DUN Laoghaire Rathdown County Council announced the completion of 44 new homes at Rosemount Court, Dundrum, recently.

Funded by the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government through Rebuilding Ireland, the new housing scheme was jointly opened by cathaoirleach, Cllr Ossian Smyth, and Eoghan Murphy, Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government.

Speaking at the launch, Cllr Smyth, said: “I am delighted with the progress of the council’s housing programme. The building of new homes remains a major pillar of our housing delivery programme, with 101 houses completed so far this year and a further 50 to be completed in the coming weeks.

“Like all homes constructed by Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, these have been built to a high quality, and are in residential areas with access to amenities and services.”

Built in close proximity to existing dwellings on a brown field site previously occupied by multi-storey flats, these new high-quality dwellings comprise 34 family homes and 12 apartments.

They form part of the council’s housing delivery target of 1,563 social housing units by the end of 2021.

The development, which achieves 50 units per hectare, is set around a shared community green, with the provision of a secure sense of place and community for residents. 

All homes are built to high environmental standards in keeping with an ethos of providing bright, spacious, comfortable accommodation, with low running costs.

The project was designed by the council’s Architects’ Department.
