Developer Johnny Ronan looks to build exclusive estate on site beside Wicklow motorway
Plans for an exclusive development of large family homes, proposed on lands right beside a junction with the M11/N11 motorway in county Wicklow has been received by the local authority.
RGRE J & R Valery’s Limited, a part of Ronan Group Real Estate, headed up by well-known developer Johnny Ronan, are hoping to build 27 houses of up to seven bedrooms on lands at St Valery’s, in Fassaroe, Bray.
The lands are just off junction 6a of the M11/ N11 which leads onto the R117 Enniskerry Road.
As part of the plans, RGRE J & R Valery’s Limited would have to demolish two existing buildings, a barn and a house know as ‘Kibo Lodge’. A new vehicle access bridge would also have to be constructed to provide access to the proposed development.
The 27 new homes, if granted permission, would consist of 17 three-bed townhouses set out in four terraces with associated balconies; six three-bed detached cantilever houses, two five-bed detached houses, one seven-bed detached house; and a two-bed single-storey house on the site of Kibo House.
The development would see the creation of 31 car parking spaces for the proposed townhouses, while the detached houses will be provided with car parking within their footprint.
A new bridge would have to be built to span across the Glencullen River giving residents access and will be located off the Enniskerry-Bray Road (R117). A new pedestrian access off the R117 will also be provided.
Access to the rest of the site will be via the existing entrance from Kilbride Lane and internal roads will be retained and upgraded.
The plans also provide for a new boundary to separate the proposed development and the protected structure that is St Valery’s House.
A decision on the ambitious development is due from Wicklow County Council on July 1. Submissions from the public are being accepted up until June 10.
