Green light for new county Wicklow estate that will provide homes for up to 600 people
The local authority has given the green light for a new development of 109 new homes in Rathdrum.
The new estate at Viewmount, Knockadosan, is being developed by Oakway Homes, a county-Kildare based company.
The development on 2.6 hectares of land aournd 1.5km from Rathdrum town centre will create living accommodation for up to 600 people.
The new estate will consist of three two-bed homes, 57 three-bed homes and 49-four bed homes.
Oakway Homes received permission to build the development after they made a request to the council to build three extra homes on the site, they managed this by reducing the number of three-bed homes by three and taking a four-bed home detached home of the plans. They then replaced these with seven four-bed semi-detached units.
Permission for the new development off the Greenane Road in Rathdrum were approved this week.
