Sod is turned on new housing development

WORK has begun on a new 109-unit residential development near the Old Nangor Road in Clondalkin, Dublin 22.

Cllr Charlie O’Connor, acting on behalf of the Mayor of South Dublin County Council, officially turned the sod on the new development on the townlands of Kilcarbery and Corkagh Demesne.

Known as Corkagh Grange, the development will comprise eight four-bedroom houses, 71 three-bed houses, 15 two-bed apartments and 15 one-bed apartments.

Corkagh Grange was approved under the Part 8 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 in September 2017 by elected members of South Dublin County Council.

The completion of this development, which is expected to be towards the end of 2020, will see units offered to single people and families on the council’s social housing waiting list.

The Corkagh Grange site is one of six across Dublin, Louth, Wicklow and Kildare included in the Social Housing Bundle 1 Public Private Partnership (PPP) project which will deliver 534 social housing homes across the region.

Cllr Charlie O’Connor, Chair of the Economic Development, Enterprise and Tourism Strategic Policy Committee said: “This is great news for families who need a home.”

Danny McLoughlin, Chief Executive, South Dublin County Council, added: “We are delighted to be part of this new PPP model to deliver housing which will see a total of 534 new homes built across five local authority areas, and 109 homes in this county.”

The Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government, the National Development Finance Agency (NDFA), part of the National Treasury Management Agency (NTMA), recently announced the contract award of the Social Housing Bundle 1 PPP project to the Comhar consortium.

David Corrigan of the NDFA said: “For the first time ever, we are extending the PPP model which has successfully delivered high-quality roads, schools and healthcare facilities for the State to deliver social housing.”

Norman Jennings, Director of Housing with Sisk Living added that they look forward to working with South Dublin County Council on the project.
