More Houses For Delgany

With the unearthing of an old burial ground having stopped play in December 2018, the developers behind Delgany’s latest estate have returned with renewed vigour after their 13-month nap.

And that means, rather than the 82 houses approved in April 2017, Gorteen Way Ltd would now like to build 92 houses up on the Bellevue Hill.

Along with the ten extra houses, Gorteen Way’s new application also includes amendments to the layout of the original permitted dwellings.

Building on the site at Gorteen House – or Richview House, as it’s also known – the new development will consist of 92 new single-storey, two-storey and three-storey dwellings, including five four-bedroom detached houses, 14 four-bed semi-detached dwellings, 44 three-bed semi-detached dwellings, 28 three-bed terraced homes and a two-bed terraced house.

The amendment include minor changes to the permitted boundary walls and fences, included the previously permitted créche, surface car parking spaces, bin storage, cycle parking and external play area, retention of two existing homes, proposed vehicular and pedestrian entrances to the development off Bellevue Hill.

Also part of the new plans are requests for associated signage, a footpath link on Bellevue Hill to Delgany village, and road junction upgrade works at Bellevue Hill and the main R762

You can check out the new applications here, and take a walk with Shay Clear through the history of Gorteen House right here.

    Hi Paul. My name is Tommy Mc Mackin. I live in Delgany and I am an active member of Delgany Tidy Towns. I am currently working on a new website that focuses on the heritage of Delgany village. I notice that you have some brilliant old shots of the village on Greystones Guide. Would it be possible for me to access some of these? Obviously I will ensure that the necessary credits are given on the website. Any help would be much appreciated.
