ith 99 houses about to be built behind it, and Easmount’s 76 to its left, Chapel Road home Melwood is about to be no more.
Which might be something of a mercy killing.
Karidon Developments Ltd have just been granted permission to build 19 houses on the property, just up the road from Kindlestown House.
The development will mean the demolition of the Woodcocks’ old home, and the outbuildings on the site.
The plans reveal 11 three-bedroom properties and eight four-bedroom properties, with a public open space of 975 square metres. There will be 38 parking spaces and 19 bike parking spaces.
As part of their application, the planners had to demonstrate that the 19 homes are compatible with the planned infrastructure upgrades along Chapel Road. Which included the addition of a grass verge along the eastern side boundary, which will allow for the construction of a future cycle track as part of the Chapel Road Improvement Scheme.
In their report, the planners outlined that according to the local area development plan, there is a shortfall of affordable family-type homes – e.g. three- to four-bedroom houses on small to medium-sized plots within the Greystones/Delgany area.
Jaysus, that’s news to us.
